Andrew “Andy” Trudeau was born August 1st, 1983 and graduated from Narragansett High School in 2001. He passed beyond the veil on June 27th, 2021.
Andy will be missed by his daughter, Hope Chandler Trudeau, and his parents, Grace Fair and Jim Trudeau, as well as his step-parents, Sue Trudeau and Phil Fair. Andy leaves behind his older brother, Josh, and his family, as well as many loving aunts and uncles, cousins, and nieces, and his Grandma, Jane Myslinski. Andy will also be honored by his dear friend and mother of his child, Renee Chandler. Andy has a lot of strong loving connections from his flop-house days and a whole family at Subway, as well as his online community, and will be missed tremendously.
Anyone who knew Andrew was touched by his deep passion for all things music and his love for dancing. He defied convention in many ways and yet was always able to express himself through music. His capacity for remembering song lyrics and weaving them seamlessly into conversation was amazing. Andy had a unique capability to find messages and higher truths in music, slight nuances that others would not notice. He was compassionate and gentle with a maniacal laughter and he had all that wild curly hair that transformed into the long dreads he maintained. He was a seeker of the highest order and an explorer of consciousness, always questioning with a child-like curiosity. Andy was bright and creative, a talented musician and drummer, as well as having a ridiculously silly sense of humor. His daughter follows that lead as well as continuing a great love for music and dancing. Andrew will be missed, but would want to be honored at all the live music events we attend, all the living room dance parties, shower sing-alongs, and those late night jam sessions.
