Andrë loved spending time with his family, listening to music, being with his friends, cooking and eating and dressing up. Andrë always gave people hugs, words of encouragement, and was there if you needed him. His smile was contagious.
He leaves to cherish his parents; four sisters, Alisha (James) Walker-Garrison, Erika (Austin) Harding Mertens and Cara and Hali Miner; four brothers, Jared, Aaron, Jordan and Adrain Miner; grandparents Roxie Crowder, Stephen (Teresa) Walker and Elaine Miner; one special aunt, Tina Walker; three special cousins, Raymond Taylor and Javion and Devonte Hatch; a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, special friends and special teachers; and his precious dogs, Mee-Shi and Honey.
