It is with great sadness that the family of Andrew Walter Patterson announce his death, which occurred suddenly on Wednesday morning, Sep 28th, 2022, at his residence. Born in Saint John, NB on June 7, 1971, he was the son of Ruth Patterson and the late Walter Patterson.
In addition to his mother, Ruth, Andrew is survived by his sister Lisa Patterson; brother-in-law Gary Howard; niece Regan Howard; and aunts: Shirley Prescott, Joyce McLeod (David) and Jean Dixon; uncles: Charles Pollock (Edna) and Roy Patterson (Charlene); loving friend Wendy Short; as well as his beloved dog Ted, 3 very loud birds, and many close friends.
Andrew worked in the office furniture business for most of his life, starting out with Walter, his dad when Office Outfitters was formed, and staying on with Office Express after the sale of the company during Covid. He was one of the most generous people around, always willing to help a friend or neighbor. He enjoyed making people laugh and entertaining everyone around, either with a guitar or with his crazy antics. He loved his family, his friends, his pets and almost every form of music from hard rock, to Anne Murray, to classical. He had made many friends from all over the world, being actively involved in many groups on social media. He even had a part in a music video made in Denmark, which may have been the highlight of his life. There was never a dull moment when Andrew was in the room. He will be missed deeply by so many.
