It is with breaking hearts and overwhelming sadness that the family announces the tragic passing of Andrew William Gnazdowsky on Friday, October 16, 2020, in Sheet Harbor, Nova Scotia. Born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on February 12, 1994, to Glen and Richel (Munroe) Gnazdowsky, Andrew truly was an angel on earth.
The family moved to Rothesay, New Brunswick in 1996, where Andrew grew up with Nicole, his sister, best friend and partner in crime. He graduated from Kennebecasis Valley High School in 2012 after which he returned to Saskatchewan, to complete his Civil Engineering Degree at the University of Saskatchewan, giving him the opportunity to spend time with his extended family. Andrew returned to New Brunswick after graduating in 2017 and met the love of his life, Allison Curwin; the Curwin family welcomed him with open arms into their family. He worked a brief period of time for WSP based out of Moncton; and in 2019 he was thrilled to get a job with Brunswick Engineering giving him the opportunity to return to Rothesay, and make this his home. He bought a house, had two dogs and a cat, and was so excited about the future; he had recently bought an engagement ring and was planning to ask Allison to be part of his life forever. He had never been so happy.
Andrew loved to have fun! He had an amazing group of friends, both in Rothesay and Saskatoon. He loved hanging out with his friends and playing board games; when he couldn’t be with them in person, they played video games online. He loved to golf and there were many father-son tournaments where the sons were beginning to overtake their dads. He was so proud of his new back yard and loved having friends and family over to enjoy a bonfire. Andrew loved food and he was becoming quite the grill master. He loved music, the tunes were always cranked and he sang along; and not being shy, he could often be seen ‘showing his moves’. Andrew loved going ‘home’ to Saskatchewan to hang out with his cousins; he was a die-hard Rider fan and every game day he proudly wore his green and white. He loved to travel and we are so grateful for the many wonderful family vacations that we had a chance to share.
Anyone who could see past his differences had an opportunity to be part of an incredible journey. Andrew taught us all how to live -- how to love life to the fullest, to be in the moment, and to find the beauty in everything around us. Andrew lit up a room when he walked in; he welcomed everyone with outstretched arms and gave the greatest hugs. Even though he struggled with many health issues throughout his life, he was the most positive, upbeat person. He had an uncanny ability to make people laugh and he had a laugh that will never be forgotten. There was never a goodbye without a ‘luv ya’.
In addition to his parents, Andrew will be never be forgotten by his sister Nicole Gnazdowsky of Halifax, NS, grandfather, ‘Gido’ Bill Gnazdowsky of Saskatoon, SK, uncles Edward (Cheryl) Gnazdowsky of Belize and Lewis Gnazdowsky of Edmonton, AB; grandmother Patricia Munroe of Moose Jaw, SK; uncles Larry (Valerie) Munroe of Moose Jaw, SK, Richard Munroe of Millet, AB, Robert (Teresa) Munroe of Moss Bank, SK, and Jason (Colette) Munroe of Consort, AB., and cousins – Doug (Janelle), Travis (Alysha), Trevor Munroe; Jerrod Eberts and Nadine (Robbie) Seims; Michael and Alysha Munroe, Mat Shaw, Ashley, Abby and Justin Byers; Colson, Josée and Kirby Munroe; John (Alysha) Goudreau, Leif (Kristen) and Marshall Olsen – their significant others and beautiful children; great-uncle Doug (Janet) Cantelon of Regina, SK and numerous extended cousins throughout the world. He will also be lovingly remembered by our many Saskatchewan friends and our special New Brunswick friends who have adopted us into their lives and we are so grateful to have them to lean on at this difficult time. Andrew truly touched the lives of so many people.
As we say goodbye, Andrew joins his ‘Baba’ (grandmother) Elizabeth Gnazdowsky and grandfather Stewart Munroe.
Arrangements are under the care and direction of Kennebecasis Community Funeral Home, 152 Pettingill Road, Quispamsis (849-2119).

May 1949 – October 2020
Jean, 71, passed away peacefully at home on October 20, 2020 with her loving husband Ray by her side. While we are saddened to lose Jean from our world, we rejoice with her as she is now with her Lord and Saviour and has been reunited with her parents and younger sister. Born in Moncton, NB, she was the middle daughter of the late Douglas and Bessie (Tandy) Geldart.
She was raised in Allison, NB, where she attended Allison Baptist Church as a girl. After meeting the love of her life, Ray and Jean married and settled in Irishtown, raising their two boys on a hobby farm before moving to Lower Coverdale. Jean had a very strong faith in God and was a member of Lower Coverdale Baptist Church for many years.
Affectionately called Nana by her beloved, precious grandchildren Jean greatly enjoyed family gatherings. Many summers were spent at Cape Enrage with her family - her favorite place on earth. Jean loved the water and for a few years boating on the Saint John River system was one of her favorite solitudes. Jean worked with CN after graduating high school. She drove a school bus for a few years, safely delivering many children to and from school in the Irishtown area. Jean was also an entrepreneur in her own right. She would get up at the crack of dawn making home milk deliveries in Albert County. She and one of her long-time, faithful friends, Dianne, created and sold custom gift baskets and greeting cards; at Christmastime they made the most beautiful, fresh, full Christmas wreaths. Her unique Nativity stable creations from old barn wood and bark were second to none and no two were ever alike. Jean would help anyone in need, no questions asked. Ray and Jean’s door was always open – for family, friends, friends’ families, pets, and church youth. Jean volunteered with the youth groups at church, nursery and young children over the years and was a positive, loving, godly influence over them all. Jean played guitar and took up photography as hobbies later in life. She loved to cook and her homemade spaghetti sauce and lasagna were family favorites.
Jean will be deeply missed by her husband Ray, with whom she celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year, her sons David (Misti Stultz) Riverview, NB and Timothy, Ottawa, ON, and her precious grandchildren, Joel, Julie, Benjamin, and Adrianna. She is also survived by her loving sister Sandra Tingley, Fredericton, her mother-in-law, Ruth (Kelly) Murray, sisters and brothers-in-law Paulette and George O’Neill, Lee and Shirley Murray and by several nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents, Jean was predeceased by her younger sister Denise McWilliam in 2017 and her father-in-law Paul Murray.
Over the past year the outpouring of love by her community was demonstrated through devoted prayer chains and the delivery of many wonderful meals. To all of those involved the family would like to express their appreciation. Gratitude is also expressed to a dear friend, Amanda Wilson who very graciously gave weeks of her time to care for Jean through some very difficult times. Jean’s family would also like to thank the staff of Extramural who were so caring and helpful over the past year. There are no words the family could possibly express to Jean’s loyal, faithful friend, Jackie Gould, who selflessly left her own home in Nova Scotia and moved in to lovingly care for Jean (and Ray) these last few months. You are loved and appreciated more than you know. Thank you.
At Jean’s request there will be no visitation. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a private family memorial service will be held at Lower Coverdale Baptist Church.
Donations in Jean’s memory may be made to Lower Coverdale Baptist Church, The Dr. Sheldon Rubin Oncology Clinic at the Moncton Hospital or the charity of the donor’s choice.
Arrangements are entrusted to Fair Haven Funeral Home. A book of online condolence’s may be signed at www.fairhavenmemorial.ca
