Andrew’s passion was golf and he enjoyed playing with his friends at his home course, Stanley Golf Course in New Britain. He also loved music and reading. Andrew or “Zbig” as his family and friends knew him had a great sense of humor and was fun to be around. He was down to earth and was a real people-person. He had a big heart and was always willing to help others.
His family would like to thank the staff at Cherry Brook Healthcare in Canton who took such good care of Andrew. They became an extended family to Andrew, and he loved everyone there so much that it was his last wish that he stay there to the end.
