ANDREW GRAEME WILSON
April 9, 1986 – July 22, 2019
With heavy hearts, we announce that Andrew passed away suddenly on July 22, 2019 in Tyndall MB at the age of 33 years.
He is survived by his parents, Craig and Adaire (Wild), brother Cameron, grandmother Margaret, as well as aunts, uncles and cousins. He was especially close to his auntie “B” (Brynne) and uncle Maurice.
Andrew made a dramatic entrance to the world and made his presence known as an infant. At the young age of 4 years he already demonstrated an interest in cars and fishing, which continued throughout his short life. As a young boy he also enjoyed playing hockey and soccer.
He attended St. Gerard School, MBCI and found his passion in the automotive program at Grant Park High School. Afterwards he found work at Talbot Service and completed his Red Seal training in automotive mechanics at Red River College. After Reid retired in 2018 Andrew moved to Advance Auto Service.
He enjoyed family vacations in Matlock, Lake of the Woods, Big Whiteshell, Scotland and the Caribbean. While in Cuba it was not a surprise for us to return from the beach and find him sitting with a cigar in one hand and a rum and coke in the other at the young age of 15. More recently he spent what time he could at the family cabin near Kenora fishing and relaxing with his dad.
Andrew always said he preferred living out of the city He enjoyed his home in Tyndall where he lived with Samson, his Jack Russell Terrier companion of 2 ½ years.
