July 8th, 1943 – July 17th 2018
Suddenly our kind, gentle and loving husband, father, and “poppa” passed away at the age of 75 due to Pulmonary Embolism. Predeceased by his parents and many siblings. Andy was born in Inwood, Manitoba, one of eighteen children of Magdalena and Anthony Dziedzic. The family moved from Winnipeg to British Columbia in 1973. He started his career with British Columbia Railway as a Computer Systems Analyst and worked there for twenty-six years. After retirement he became a small project construction worker. He was a kind, gentle and loving man to his family, friends and neighbours. Andy was known to have a great love for people and travel. Gardening was his passion and he and his wife Jeanie took great pride in their Community Walkway beside their home. He had a great sense of humor and was a great story teller. He loved to hangout with his “coffee buddies” Frenchie, and John. He is survived by his loving wife Jeanie of 52 years, his son David, and daughter Karen, son-in-law Kelly, two grandchildren Miranda and Carley, his three brothers and three sisters. He leaves a legacy that no one’s shoes could ever fill. Viewing for family and close friends is Saturday July 28th, 7-8PM. A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, July 29th at 1PM at the Osborn Maple Ridge Funeral Chapel (11969, 216th Street, Maple Ridge). Reverend Roy Hubbeard will be officiating.
