AGNEW, Andrew Rogers

Born in Scotland on August 9, 1940, Andrew passed away peacefully at Mill Creek Care Centre in Barrie, Ontario on April 3, 2014 after a courageous battle following a debilitating stroke in 2004.  Beloved husband of Lesley for 50 years, loving father of Heather (Ward Foster) and Meredith (Gord Baker) and devoted grandfather of Chloe, Fiona and Ryan, predeceased by sister Isabel, survived by brother-in-law Robert Graham Lusk,  also sisters Yeti, Nicolette and Fiona.  After arriving in Canada in 1961, Andrew worked as a research analyst on Bay Street for many years.  A private service of interment will be followed by a celebration of his life later in the spring.  The family would like to thank his wonderful caregivers at home for the past 9 years and at Mill Creek since November.  In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the March of Dimes would be appreciated.

“and memory, however sad, is the best and purest link between this world and a better.”   Charles Dickens
