My heart breaks for the sudden loss of a bright young future. Andre worked for me as a swim instructor. He was a phenomenal teacher who had a way with teaching the 3-5 year old kids. He connected with students and made learning to swim fun. He was a wonderful employee for me and taught me the importance of not judging a book by its cover. He coached with my husband, our daughter’s rec water polo team. He loved his family fiercely and his fiancé was everything to him. I know the sudden unexpected loss is so difficult and I pray memories will bring great comfort in the hard times. Andre would not want us to mourn him but celebrate the man he was. Hugs Shannon and Adrienne! I know the pain is deep. May you find comfort knowing he lived his life his way.

Annette I am so very sorry for your loss. He sounds like an amazing son and man. I'm sorry that I was never able to meet him.

My thoughts are with you, Joe and Adrianne.

Andre was such a hard-working scholar, dedicated to his craft. Though quiet in demeanor, his actions and aptitude spoke volumes about his commitment to his future in Software Engineering. Save me a tee time and we’ll meet up again to play 9 holes in that great green golf course in the heavens!

Dr. Kohler , Neumont College of Computer Science, UT, US Jul 21, 2022

Your love, desire and commitment to your collective future is undeniable!

JJS , SLC, UT, US Jul 21, 2022

I love you.

This is being lovingly shared.

Goodbyes hurt the most when the story was not finished.

I love the way you loved me. The way you took care of me and Rogue. The way we were so excited to get married and start our family. The unconditional love you had for me.

Rest in peace as you soar free.

Tu me manques mon amour ❤️

JJS , SLC, UT, US Jul 20, 2022
