In Loving Memory of
1946 - 2012
It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that the Andy Family announces the sudden passing of Edward Andy "Neyokamig" of the Moose Clan on October 11, 2012.
Ed is predeceased by his beloved wife Linda (nee Nelson), his parents Joseph Sr and Bessie (nee Morrison), siblings Josephine, Christine, and Jim as well as his in-laws Herb and Evelyn Nelson of Rainy River.
Ed is survived by his two daughters Michelle and Heather, grandchildren Vanessa and Lucius, brother Joseph Jr "Nanabush" as well as several nieces and nephews.
Ed was born in Big Grassy First Nation where he spent a childhood filled with fond memories that he spoke of with great pride. Ed met the love of his life and best friend Linda at New Moon Landing where for all who new Ed was a time he considered the best years of his life. Ed and Linda shared wonderful memories of marriage, travel, and trips to various casinos. Ed cherished the years raising his daughters with Linda and embraced becoming a Goompa to Vanessa as well as a Yeye to Lucius. Vanessa will fondly remember her special drives when Goompa would tell stories. In recent years it was common to see Yeye with Lucius on their regular walks to park, the chip truck, rides on the bus, shopping together at Walmart and the special day trips to Tinkertown where Yeye spent the day co-piloting all the rides. Ed also spoke of his long career in the Ontario Provincial Police Service with great honour. Through his career Ed established great friendships and was well known for his great rapport for those he came across.
Eds Traditional Service will be on October 18, 2012 at Big Grassy Community Hall in Big Grassy starting at 10:00am with his wake the night before on October 17, 2012 at 6:00pm at Big Grassy Narrows Community Hall.
