Brendan D. Andrews

May 9, 1976 ~ June 10, 2014

Brendan Andrews, of Wenatchee, WA, beloved son of Janis and Richard Andrews, passed away in Seattle, WA due to complications of Cystic Fibrosis with his Mom and Dad at his bedside. He bravely battled his illness for 38 years. He grew up in Wenatchee and attended school here and was working on a college degree. He loved his family, friends, his dog, and was our resident computer expert. He’d had a difficult life, due to constant illness and treatment and was close to being listed for a lung transplant, when he took a sudden turn for the worse. He had matured into a kind young man and will be remembered for his sympathy and generosity to family and friends. Despite his own ill health, he tried to help others with health issues, especially his Mom.

He is survived by his parents; a grandmother; an aunt; an uncle; two first cousins; and many second cousins.

We are grateful to the critical care nurses at the University of Washington Medical Center, who took care of him as if he were their own, and cried with us when we had to let him go.

A Private Memorial is planned for a later date, when his cremated remains will be scattered in a beautiful place of his family’s choosing. Donations may be made to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in his name.
