Passed away in his sleep, after a valiant effort to keep living his best life, in spite of being besieged by a myriad of debilitating and painful health crisis.
He will be sorely missed by his loving wife Sirpa Seipio, his brothers David Poaps, William Poaps and his sister-in-law Sylvia van Walsum, and many, many good friends. He loved deeply and was deeply loved.
He was a gifted pianist who could make you weep with the beauty of his playing. He loved animals and will be missed by his constant companions Sparkle and Guinevere. He was kind, gentle and caring. He had a quick wit, always ready with his ever-present sense of humour. He worked diligently at Grand and Toy as a buyer and a systems analyst, for decades, until Multiple Sclerosis made things too difficult. He continued to live his motto "A good day is a productive day". He was a choir director, an avid gardener and the love of my life.
We will celebrate Andrew's life in the spring, when everyone can join us. He will be interred in his family burial site in Crystal Lake Cemetery in Stanstead, Quebec.
