An ode to my son
He was one who took his chances in this bitter world of men.
Battle luck and circumstances fought and fell and fought again.
Took his beatings kept on going never let his courage fail.
He was fallible and human never false to any friend.
Played the game until it finished.
He was my son and I loved him dearly.
Andrew was born and raised on the on the West Coast before
choosing to make the East Coast his home. He was a generous man
with a huge, huge heart. He was complex always kind,
compassionate, forgiving and at times could be fierce or sensitive
much like a teddy bear with a temper. He was a loyal friend and a
protector of all those he loved.
Andrew was a man who lived large, laughed loud and played hard.
A staunch West Coast Eagles supporter was Andrew and he lived for
the footy season. But Afl wasn’t the only football code or sport
Andrew followed. His yearly calendar was jammed packed with the
European and English Soccer Leagues, The tour de France, grand
Prix’s, us masters, Pipeline and to many more to mention. He was
sports greatest spectator.
Music was Andrews greatest passion. His favourite pastime was
spending endless hours in front of his computer downloading songs
from all genres and languages. He was proud 4 years ago to
announce at that time he had surpassed a million songs. A personal
achievement that took him 12 dedicated years.
Andrew had a thirst for knowledge which he gained from reading
books on sports, music, history, war and geography. He was able to
commit everything he read to memory and would rattle off names
dates and details of his chosen topics. He was a well read, informed
