Andrew was a skilled hunter, shooting his first large buck on his first deer hunt when he was 7 years old. He also enjoyed every second of being on the water fishing, swimming and just hanging out with friends. Andrew was most passionate about fishing, saltwater and fresh. He caught many fish at his great-grandparent’s island house. He also loved to fish off shore and the flats with his family.

Andrew loved being with his friends. His all-time favorite activity was socializing.
