  1. Sincere condolences to Betty and all of Andrew’s family on his sad passing. Andrew leaves lasting memories from his time at Cobden Golf Club and from being a very inspiring yet down-to-earth Rotarian.

  7. To be thought of as being a “Good Man” is high praise

    A “Good Man” is a loving, true, protective and supportive family man

    A “Good Man” is a loyal and true friend

    A “Good Man” is Community orientated, giving rather than receiving, championing those in need, giving hope to those who needed hope, guiding those who needed guidance, representing those who needed representation, being there when someone needed somebody to be there

    How then do we describe a “Great Man” – two words – Andrew Suggett OAM

    Rest peacefully Andrew

    Bernie, Judy Garner and Family

  22. Andrew was a friend of mine. Finding words to pay tribute to him is difficult because he was such a huge diverse personality. Determined, good company, accommodating, always serving, a skilled artist and very loyal. To Betty and family, know that he was loved as much as he loved you.

  25. Andrew was just the best in what humanity has to offer. He was and will always remain an inspiration to me. We didn’t always agree on everything, but he respected everyone’s right to their opinion. This was especially so regarding who they barracked for in the AFL. Of course, the mighty Swans were always the best but the Swans had to give other team a go sometimes. He loved all his family with a passion and his friends weren’t far behind. Parkinson’s may have slowed Andrew down, but I don’t believe it defined who he was. He was a person driven by identifying a community need and finding a way to bring people together to achieve great things.
    RIP Andrew. I love you like a brother.
