On the 10th of August 2012 we lost a very good friend and comrade and Canada lost another great soldier and veteran.
"Andy" Anderson lost his battle with cancer with his family by his side.
We are saddened by his loss and our prayers and condolences are offered to Andy’s family.
A good husband, father, soldier and friend, he had the best attitude to life right to his last seconds. He was a Patricia and an Airborne soldier through and through.
All who knew him would say we were all blessed to have known him for a few minutes or for many years.
Go well friend. Save us a small spot in the RV. Rest in Peace, Andy.
My helmet, now a halo
Wings replace my chute
To fly amongst the eagles
No Soldier would dispute
No aircraft is needed
To take me to the sky
Your prayers from below
Have lifted me so high
My spirit is my engine
No need to refuel
No runway required
A rainbow`s edge will do
No need for maps or compasses
My angels are my guides
Their strength and love have gifted me
To soar the sky with pride
The heavens here are endless
My soul’s now free to roam
There is no need to cry my friends
This Airborne Trooper found his home.
