Andrew was born in 1966 and was one of five founder members of Freewheelers Theatre and Media Company established in 1989. Andrew was a playwright, director and actor and by all accounts a comedian too. You can watch Andrew’s friends describe him, and see Andrew performing, in this tribute video here:
One of his friends sums him up like this:
“He was an interesting chap when I first met him. He was – himself. If you’d never met Andy that’s what he was like. Quirky, crazy and just… full of life”.
Andrew, who had Noonan’s syndrome and autism, was admitted to St Helier Hospital from his care home in February 2020. Angela stayed by his side 24/7 until he died, in a local hospice, 15 days later.
I recorded a number of short videos reporting what happened at Andrew’s inquest that I’ve merged and provided below:
