Andrew Nels Dejonghe

January 21, 1940 – January 13, 2021
Andrew passed away on Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at Nanaimo General Hospital. Survived by his beloved wife, Lillianne, and his daughters Michelle (Eric) Skinner, Edith (Denis) Dubois, and stepson, James (Kerri) Pothier.
Andrew will also be greatly missed by his many grandchildren: Amanda, Jessica, Connie, Ashton, Sherisse, Sebastien and their families. Survived by his siblings Joseph (Marjorie) and Lloyd (Barbara), Andrew was predeceased by his parents John (1996) and Anna (1999).
During his working years, Andrew had many good friends and colleagues in Kimberley B.C. Andrew spent his working years at the Skookumchuck Pulp and Paper mill until his retirement. He spent the best years of his retirement in the Kootenays where he enjoyed spending time with his close friends and neighbours. Fishing still remained Andrew’s passion throughout the years, which extended to the waters off Vancouver Island. He was often seen walking and playing with his beloved dog, Prince. Andrew will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.
The family expresses its sincere gratitude to the medical staff at NRGH and the response team. In lieu of flowers and if desired, donations in memory of Andrew may be made to the B.C. SPCA.
No service by request.

Time for me to go now
I won’t say goodbye
Look for me in Rainbows
Way up in the sky.
