Suzuki, Andrew Arthur. May 11, 1952 –

August 27, 2013. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Andrew on August 27, 2013 after a long illness. Andrew is survived by Vicki Bolan, his partner of 36 years, his mother, Ann Suzuki Miake of Sudbury, ON, sisters Cathy, Caroline, and Susan, brother Makoto, aunts Mary Suzuki Hawkes, Judy Gracie, PeeWee (Phoebe) Suzuki, and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews; predeceased by his aunt Cookie (Jane) and his uncle McGregor.

A talented craftsman, Andrew developed his love for wood at Sheridan College in the early 1070s. Many friends and family members were the lucky recipients of game boards and boxes with intricate, inlay patterns in both domestic & exotic woods. Andrew will be remembered for his never-ending stories, his fondness for political discussions & sports (most notably the Tour de France and the Canucks), and his love of music (especially that found at the Harrison Festival of the Arts where he was a volunteer for 16 years). Special thanks go to Drs. Goodman, Bull, and Hopkins, to Dani, Janette, and Lyn with Agassiz Home Health, the nurses at the Cascade Hospice in Chilliwack and the entire Fraser Health Palliative Home Care team.

Donations, if so desired, may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society – Prostate Research. A Celebration of Life is planned for a later date but in the meantime, messages of condolence online at
