“Everyone was at Andrew’s side — his wife, daughter, Pete and their parents — the whole family.

“Andrew woke up, looked around at everyone to say goodbye, and then fell asleep. He passed away in his sleep. It was very peaceful.

“This is the first member of Pete’s immediate family to pass away and he is obviously devastated. The whole family is in shock and need time and privacy to grieve.”
