Judge Lost His Battle With Cancer Yesterday.
I got a text from his lovely missus at 12:48 to say that he was having his bed bath from “his bitches”. (his nurses were quite cute).
But he passed away at 14:10 with his Andrea and his eldest, Dom at his bedside
Not a bad way to go, considering.
The last couple of weeks he had been on strong drugs, and wasn’t in any pain or discomfort.
Andy was a great lad and we’ve been great mates for the last 10 years. Every time I went to Snetterton, we would go out on the lash, and then I’d kip on their sofa.
He came on a couple of trackdays with me and whenever we were together, his big daft grin made the time special.
He was always a lightweight in the pub, but always let me scrounge a fag or two
He also helped out on the Riders for Health helmet buses a few times, which he really enjoyed.
Bigyin went to see him a few days ago, and Andy recognised BY’s ugly mush. BY should have kept his dark visor on.
BY spoke to Dom (his son) and he said that he had postponed his A’levels for a year to spend as much time as he could with his dad.
He said “I can take my A’levels next year, but I can’t do this next year.
The younger kids are about 8, 11 & 12.
Andy & Andrea have had amazing support from their amazing family and friends who all live close by. Her parents live opposite.
In future, on each visit to Snetterton, I am gonna pop in to see Andrea for us tea. Obviously we will be having fish and chips coz Andy warned me off her cooking
Andy really was one of the good guys and I never heard a bad word against him. Well, apart from being ugly, couldn’t sup, slow as hell and wrong side of the Pennines. Apart from that, he was great.
I will miss him like hell. It seems so long since he called me to give me the bad news, but we had many good times since then.
I know that he had a really, really great day on the trackday at Snetterton that we arranged for him at the end of summer last year and many of his friends came along to support him
You will never be forgotten mate. You bought Homer a huge pink bone many years ago, which he couldn’t destroy and was his favourite toy. Elvis has now discovered it and I always think of you when he tries his best to destroy it
We were both massive Man Utd fans and I am gonna go out later to watch the lads beat Everton this afternoon. A while ago he took his son Dom to Old Trafford and that was an amazing highlight for him.
We sometimes talked about the inevitable, and apart from leaving his missus and family, he was also gutted that he wouldn’t see his lads grow up and get married.
But he was pleased that his family would be well taken care of financially due to insurances.
I have been asked to be a coffin bearer, which will be a great honour for me.
Obviously you want to leave your kind messages, but please avoid being too morose and all the usual clichés. Andy & Andrea were probably the most fun-loving couple I have ever met, and a few well-meant light-hearted comments will do Andrea the world of good.
