Andre attended East Providence High School and University of Rhode Island. He was an accomplished photographer, videographer, and musician. Former employers include Hasbro, Gladworks, and Gator cases; he worked most recently in Rhode Island and in Florida.
Additionally, Andre never met an instrument that he couldn’t play; music was an important part of his life. He selflessly spent his time volunteering in support of Save Music in public schools and Make a Wish Foundation. He was a devoted friend to all who knew him; his kindness, humor and wit enriched all the lives of everyone he met. He enjoyed traveling, art, music, family, and friends upon friends. He will never know how much he will be missed.
His Funeral & Burial will be private at the request of the family. Visitation will be held Friday July 15, 2022 from 5-8 PM in the W. Raymond Watson Funeral Home, 350 Willett Avenue Riverside, RI.
Andre will always be remembered with love. In lieu of flowers please donate to the Mental Health Association of Rhode Island, 345 Blackstone Blvd, Providence, RI 02906.
