Cairns, “Andy” William Andrew -
It is with profound sadness that we announce Andy’s passing at SAH on the evening of Friday, June 14th, 2019 at the young age of 59; with family & his beloved Sheltie, Yvette by his side. We find some comfort that he is now reunited with his parents, Donald & Alma Cairns, his brother & best friend Chris Cairns & his Uncle Alfred.
Andy will be profoundly missed & lovingly remembered by his big brother, Richard Cairns, his nieces & nephews, cousins & his Aunt Edith. He will be missed beyond measure by his “side kick” & partner in adventure, Yvette. He loved & spoiled his little “Princess”.
Andy left his mark in our community & in many other’s in the Province as a Professional Engineer operating his own small Engineering Firm; Cairns Engineering since 2006. He will be there in spirit & happy to see the doors remain open & business to proceed in his absence. Andy loved his work. Especially Storm Water Management Projects or anything that created a challenge. He didn’t let challenges or adversity get him down; he just kept moving forward. He will be greatly missed by many of his clients, colleagues, friends & on a grand scale by his secretary, Janet.
Andy was a proud Piper. He Loved Music & he was a part of an amazing community of musicians who will feel his absence. He will also be greatly missed by his cherished friend Mylene; Polka dot Thursdays will never be the same.
Andy has been cremated at River’s Edge. Family & Friends are welcome to join in a celebration of his life on Friday, June 28th, 2019 upstairs at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall on Great Northern Road in Sault Ste. Marie, ON.

Andy was a free spirit. I sure will miss our tales of The Great Lake. Superior. He wanted to get tattoo, something that meant something. The Lake Superior Spirit Serpent, Michi-Peshu. One of a kind, just like Andy. He will surely be missed. May all his family and friends feel his Spirit Presence when at the magical beautiful Shores of Lake Superior.
