Andrew Messner

     On December 30, 2018 our loving son, brother, and grandson Andrew passed away suddenly at the age of 25. 
     Andrew was born in Santa Clara and grew up in Sunnyvale. He swam at SUNN Swimming in his early years, and he did marching band and water polo at Fremont High School. After graduating Fremont, he attended Foothill College and went on to get his bachelor's degree in Kinesiology at Cal Poly SLO. Thereafter, he attended Life West Chiropractic School where he was pursuing his lifelong dream of becoming a chiropractor. 
     Andrew loved healthy living, hiking with his dog Indie, writing poetry, being with his many friends, and spending time with family. Andrew will be remembered for his big heart, bright personality, and endearing smile. Wearing his heart on his sleeve, he was always willing to help others. He was very brave and courageous, and will live in our hearts and stories forever. His family misses him dearly. 
     The memorial service will be held Saturday, January 12th at 1pm at Spangler Mortuary in Sunnyvale. All are invited. Please wear joyous colors. In lieu of gifts, please make a donation to NAMI Santa Clara in Andrew's name.
