Obituary of Andrew Fane
It is with profound sadness that the family of Andrew Fane announce his sudden passing on Sunday April 16th, 2023 at the age of 57 years.
The youngest of three sons, Andrew was born in Newmarket to parents Gwendoline (nee Brownlie) and Ronald Fane. Growing up in Holland Landing, Andrew maintained most of his childhood friendships into his adult years and is remembered for his loyalty and exuberance. Larger than life, Andrew’s laughter echoed across town as did tales of his many adventures.
At 21, Andrew met his true match and the love of his life, Wanda Lee Fane (nee Pecevnik) and they married on September 15, 1990. During their 33 year marriage, they raised two daughters and he is remembered by all of his girls as being a true family man, devoted to caring for not only his wife, children and grandson, but also his parents, his adoring in-laws, and his late brother, Stu.
A hard worker, Andrew spent what free time he had helping neighbours and friends in need. From fixing furnaces to cooking meals, if a helping hand was required, Andrew was there. He will forever be remembered as “one of the good ones”.
Andrew is survived by his loving wife, Wanda; daughters Mackenzie (late Michael) and Taylor (Miranda); grandson Bo James Andrew; mother Gwen; brother Graham (Liz) and their children Kevin (Steph/son Declan) and Christine (Jeremy). He is predeceased by father, Ron; brother Stuart; and in-laws Peter and Shirley Pecevnik.
He will be forever loved and missed by his extended family, and also his lifelong group of friends who became family not only to Andrew, but to his wife and daughters also.
A visitation for Andrew will be held at Skwarchuk Funeral Home, 30 Simcoe Rd., Bradford on Thursday, April 27th from 5pm-8pm. A memorial service will be held at the funeral home on Friday, April 28th at 11am.
