Peacefully in his sleep on Wednesday May 23, 2018 at the age of 63. Andy will be fondly remembered by his many friends in North Bay and the Military “as he’s gone on the long ride “. Left to honour Andy’s life include his sister Liz Dobbs Jones (Mike Jones), his nephews Matt Dobbs (Jaclyn), Gabe Jones (Maddie), and his nieces Brooke Belles (Mike), Nathalie Jones (Paul), his great grand nieces and nephew and his best little buddy Logan.
