HARDY: Andrew Joseph William (Andy) passed away on September 25, 2015 at BRHC at the age of 83. He was predeceased by his wife Doris (2010), his brother Gabe and parents Peter and Nora Hardy. Andy leaves behind to mourn his children; Don (Barb), Karen (Chris), Ken (Mary) and eight grandchildren; Theresa, Bev, Wesley, Christopher, Heather, Lauren, Thomas, Shauna; and nine great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandson. Also Andy’s sisters; Yvonne (Richard), Rose Marie (Renato) and brother Roger (Jeannette), sister-in-law Mary and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Dad was a Railroad Man working for the CPR for over 20 years. Mom and Dad retired to Oak Lake Beach making numerous life-long friends. So many memories were made with family and friends, always gathering for holidays and visits at “Andy and Doris’s”. After moving into Brandon in 2005, Dad and Mom settled into city life, never forgetting their “laker” friends. After Mom passed away Dad cherished even more his time spent with family. “We all miss you so much”
A celebration of Andy’s life was held at St. Augustine’s Catholic Church in Brandon, on what would have been his 84th Birthday, September 29, 2015 with a private interment in Rosewood Memorial Gardens. In memory of Andy, donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or to the Lung Association.

Don, Ken and Karen and families. Am sorry to hear of your dad Andy’s passing.
Please accept our condolences. Lots of good memories of Andy and Doris with Mom and Dad at the lake. Bonfires, Northender “happy hours” and music and singing.

Sad to hear about uncle Andy. He always enjoyed to visit and always interested in the extended family. We will miss his smile and infectious laugh. Don, Barb, Karen, Chris, Ken, Mary and families our hearts and prayers go out to you.
We are thinking of you folks even though we couldn’t be there with you on Tuesday. With Andy’s death I have lost a person who has been part of my for most of my life.
