Rt. Wor. Bro. Andrew Ferguson


  1916 2016


The family of Andy are extremely saddened to announce his passing at Pinewood Court on February 9, 2016 at the age of 99, just 3 weeks short of his 100th birthday.


He is predeceased by his son William Thomas and his wife of sixty-six years Anna.


He is survived by his son Donald and wife Iris (Bragg Creek, AB) grandchildren Andrew and his wife Sarah Ferguson (Sault Ste. Marie) and Laura and Jarrett Sylvestre. He is survived by six great-grandchildren, Gareth, Elijah and Brayden Sylvestre, and Katie, Hannah and Rachel Ferguson. He is also survived by several nieces, nephews, and cousins.


Andy started work at Delemater and Rankin at the age of 19 where he remained until his retirement at age 68. He took an active interest in all of his clients becoming lifelong friends with many of them. Andy devoted his life to service of the community through his many offices in Wesley United Church and devoted work in his lodge. Andy was a member of Masons, Scottish Rite and Shrine holding almost every office in those lodges, including president of the Shrine and District Deputy Grand Master in the Masons.


In 2006, Andy was awarded the "Spirit of Thunder Bay Award" in honour of his many years of community service. He had many friends and neighbours who dearly cared for him. We will miss him always. A memorial service will be held at a later date (time and place to be announced). In lieu of flowers, donations to Wesley United Church, Autism Ontario, or the Downs Syndrome Association would be appreciated.
