  • I was the first person Andrew, but as I called him, Sumner, met when he moved to Delaware City. Knowing what I know now, that was one of the best moments of my life. We drifted apart as we got older but there was nothing but love laughter and respect when we seen each other. Your kind soul will forever be missed and Delaware City streets will forever hear the wheel bearings of your skateboard cruising just as cool as you were.

  • We are so very sorry for the tragic loss of your son and grandson Drew. There are no words to ease your pain but we are praying that God will bring you peace and comfort in a way that only He can. Drew seemed like a very special person with a beautiful smile! Although it is difficult to see beyond your sorrow, hopefully there will come a day when you can look back on your precious memories with fondness and love! In the interim we hope that you will feel the love that surrounds you by family and friends!

  • Andrew was a good friend to me also the guy who put me on to one of my favorite movies in middle school “Back to the Future”. I was able to reconnect with Andrew after 10 years when I seen him Amazon we talked about getting in the gym together last time I seen him we were 14…here we are 21 just catching up Rest In Peace my friend.

  • To Andrew’s Family:
    Andrew was kind, smart and super cool. I wish I had told him that when we sat next to each other at graduation. During practice, we had joked about all the random protocols we had and how weird it was we had so much in common yet we never had classes nor did we talk much during high school. If only we had all known he had felt a certain way; maybe things could’ve changed, possibly. I’m reminiscing on the what ifs but it’s just due to the fact that he’s not here anymore and I’m upset about it; I’m sure you all can say the same. I’m very sorry for everything you all are going through. I hope and pray that his name lives on positively because you all deserve to have Andrew’s live on infinitely.
    Sending lots of love,
    Aryana Streett
