Andrew Constable, Security, Passed Away Suddenly on Sunday


Andrew Constable, Security, Late Watch passed away suddenly on Sunday January 5th, 2020. Andrew was well liked by everyone on all shifts and those from other departments who came his way.

Known for his generosity and thoughtfulness to those of us who knew him over the years, he was a great conversationalist and patron of the arts. He was known to collect art from fellow guards and commissioned several pieces over the years.

His knowledge of many subjects and sense of humor were his hallmarks, and his large presence and booming baritone laugh could fill a room. It is with great sadness we say goodbye to our brother and all around wonderful person far too early. Andrew touched many lives and will be sorely missed by those of us who had the pleasure of his friendship throughout the years.

If you have any pictures of Andrew, please send them to [email protected] so we can include them in a photo gallery.

Below is a transcription of text from a family member form Facebook:

“It is with a very heavy heart that the Constable family announces the sudden passing of (Pete’s brother) Andy. Please reach out to Pete and/or Jeff if you would like to be invited to a celebration of Andy’s life later this spring/summer.

In addition, we started a site on Caring Bridge to be used to share stories and photos to a broader range of friends and family. We will post information for services once details are determined. Please sign up, post any photos/memories you are willing to share, and leave contact information. Many thanks.
