Messages of condolence

A true friend who will be sadly missed.

Mr tony Eggs

Andy and I shared so many happy times and memories with 1st Oakington scouting, Cambridge City rugby, Cantabs rowing and with our families. Andy will be very sadly missed. Malcolm Collins

Mr Malcolm Collins

I will always be grateful for the help and Support that Andrew gave me back in 2005/06. If it were not for him I would never have reached my potential as a rower and would be left wondering to this day. Thank you, Andy. Condolences to all of those who will miss him, and there will be many.

Mr Charlie Palmer

One of Andrew's legacies will be the love of sailing and rowing he has bestowed on so many young people and he will never be forgotten. We have happy memories of time spent together and will miss his company. David & Anne Woodward.

Mrs Anne Lonergan

We had the privilege of knowing Andrew for a relatively short period of time but in that time we have enjoyed so many things together, Furniture Masters outings, dinners and countless other trips, events and parties. Andrew and the Johnson's have become some of the best friends to our family and we are so glad to have had the chance to get to know and appreciate Andrew and his dry sense of humor. We like so many others will miss him. With love, Lizzie and Chris


Andrew was not only a fellow oarsman in the 1970's. He also met my sister Debbie when she joined me at a Cantabs dinner and consequently he became my brother-in-law. Andrew will be sadly missed.


I rowed for Hills from 2014-16, the amount that Andy did for all of us has only really become apparent with a great deal of hindsight. I'm incredibly grateful for everything he taught me, not just about rowing but also about becoming an adult and instilling self belief. It was always a pleasure to bump into him on the towpath or at events over the past few years and I know how much joy he got out of knowing what the boys he coached were doing after leaving Hills.

Mr Freddie Scott

I am very sorry to hear of the passing of Andy. I was a member and captain of Hills Road boys team in 2012-2014 and have many fond memories of rowing under Andy’s coaching and fantastic sense of humour. He will be sorely missed and certainly not forgotten - an excellent mentor to the many students he coached.

Mr Lewis Hawkins

I was the hills road Cox between 2015-2016 and Andy coached us and helped us win a blade in the top division. His speeches , particularly for the Head of the river were always truly great and he defined inspiration . I have the blade in my kitchen , with his name on and it will be looked at even more fondly now than before. I was greatly saddened to hear of his passing and I'm sure he will be sorely missed by everyone at Cantabs past and present.

Mr Matthew Adams
