Obituary For Andrew David Saucier

Had I known December 7th 2022 was going to be my last day, I would have slowed down a little more. I would have laughed a little more. I would have told you, “ I love you” a little more. I would have held on to you a little tighter.
But I didn’t know. It’s not like I meant for this to happen. But... here we are.

I, Andrew David Saucier was born November 11, 1982 to Suzanne (Boutilier) & George Saucier. I was the greatest thing in the world, until my sister was born.

As a child I grew up on The Beaver Bank Villa and even though I lived in Sackville as an adult, I always considered myself a “Villian” at heart.
As a teen I joined the Junior Firefighter Program with the Beaver Bank-Kinsac Volunteer Fire Dept. I played Baseball and was on the H.T.B. Basketball team. By the time I hit Millwood High, My short lived bad rebellious days were behind me and I spent the next two years chasing the girl I had asked to marry me at 10 years old.

I eventually ended up being a member of Lockview High’s first graduating class of 2003.
And that girl I chased? Eventually said yes.
We welcomed a daughter four years later and life was never the same. Everything I ever did from then on was for my wife, Anita Shunamon & my daughter Abigail Saucier-Shunamon.

I worked hard everyday of my life for nearly 18 years at Walmart Canada trying to provide for my family. We were never wealthy, but there was food in the cupboard and a roof over our heads. There was more love in our home than most people have in their whole lifetimes. So if you ask me, I was a rich, rich man.
When I wasn’t working backshift, I liked to relax by gaming, or as my wife liked to say “ yelling at my PC”. But don’t listen to her, I liked to do other things too. I liked fishing when I could get the chance. I liked road trips. I made it to Disney and the Big Apple. I loved to work with my hands. I liked to play a good game of crib now and again. I loved a good documentary and a good book. I loved to learn and if I couldn’t figure something out, “ there was always a YouTube video for that” But let me tell ya, what I really loved was some of the wife’s homemade cooking! Most of all, I just loved to be with my family. Cuz, let’s face it, there’s a lot of them.
Between my mother’s & father’s side and then the in-laws, I could have filled a football team, “GO PATS!” And if love could have kept me here, I would have lived forever.

Sadly at 40, I had to go. In doing so, I left behind my child hood Sweetheart and our precious daughter.
My sister, Virginia Saucier. Little sister Gen Saucier and her mother Marilyn French. My Grandfather Barry Taylor, Father in-law Mike Shunamon. In- laws, Ricky Shunamon & Jenn Barlow and Alex & Lisa LeDrew.
Im gonna miss all my nieces, Carrie, Tess, Evie, Allie and River. My nephew Jayden.
My Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, cousins and more cousins. But don’t worry, I got lots of company up here with me. Grandmother Joyce Taylor, Aunt Brenda Levere, Mother-in-law Eleanor Shunamon and my adopted Dog Ziggy. And I can’t wait to see Amy again.

They say they’re gonna give me one last send off. It would mean a lot to me if you could join them.
Monday December 19th at the Kinsmen Community Centre, 71 First lake Drive, Lower Sackville. 11am -1pm.
My girls thought it would be good idea to ask everyone to wear something New England Patriots related or their very best Beaver Bank Tux, Cuz I’ve been known to rock that ensemble, head to toe on occasion.

Don’t bother wasting any money on me. I don’t need no flowers. I only ask you come and share your memories with my family. I’m up here seeing all the good things you do for them and I’ll always thank you.

P.S. See you when you get here.

    I am so sorry to hear if the passing of Andrew, sincere condolences to all the best friends and family. Just heartbreaking. May you all find strength you need to get through this hard time.

    Andrew was such a good guy and a hard worker. 11 years ago I left NS (and Wal-mart) and Andrew and I had a discussion on my last night. He had never shared feelings with me before that night and I was surprised he left a message on my Facebook after I left. I shared that memory in the gallery. He will surely be missed.

    My condolences go out to your family Andrew. I worked with Andrew overnights and he was a very quiet guy but had a big heart. A hard worker and would help you if asked. Sad you had to leave so young. Till we meet again. Cathy Lucas

    Dearest Suzanne and Family, I'm so sorry for the loss of your precious Son, Brother, Husband. I remember Andrew when he was a little boy and we lived next door to each other on Frederick Avenue. Suzanne you were always so loving, kind and patient with Andrew and Virginia, I always admired you for that. They were so sweet those two. When I look at the picture of Andrew it's hard to believe it was so long ago, he looks so much like you. All I can say is I'm so sorry and please accept my heartfelt condolences. I pray one day your sadness will be replaced with happy memories of Andrew. Your in my heart and prayers at this very difficult time and may Andrew Rest In Peace. Hugs to you all. Christine Gargan

    I really wish I could have met Andrew in "real life:, but sharing pictures and stories through Anita, I feel as if I knew him a little bit. The pain your family is going through is unimaginable to me, I hope and pray that you are all comforted with the knowledge that you were all loved so well by this wonderful man. May God give you comfort and peace when you need it the most!

    So sorry for your loss. Sending Hugs and prayers for strength and healing during this difficult time.

  • 12/11/2022

    Anita, what a lovely tribute you have honoured Andrew with in his voice and words. You made me laugh and cry at the same time. I remember how you and Andrew also were my "rocks" when Michael passed and I feel terrible that I cannot be there for you now. I will find something Patriot or plaid and wear it in Andrews memory on the 19th. I will see you when we return. Love to you and Abby. Auntie Cheryle

    Andrew never said too much, much like myself but when he did you listened and you knew he meant it. Enjoyed working with him on backshift at Walmart. A real team player at work and home. Well respected among everyone at work. My deepest sympathies to the family. Till we meet again.

  • 12/11/2022

    Sending sincere condolences to you Anita, Abigail and family. Joey and Hughie

  • 12/11/2022

    Andrew never had alot say but when he laughed it was real. I will miss that laugh in the morning while trying to beat him to the time clock. Rest well.

  • 12/11/2022

    Andrew was always so kind to me when I worked on back shift with him and if I was in a bad mood he would walk by and the cologne that he wore was absolutely amazing on him it became a joke after a while if somebody saw I was cranky they told me to go walk by Andrew so I could smell the cologne and calm down I'm so sorry for your loss and someday we will all meet again

    Anita what a beautiful write up you did. Andrew brought Abbey to Sparks most Monday nights, I always said hi or waved at him and he did the same back to me. He seemed a bit shy but he always acknowledged me. We are shocked to read of Andrews passing, hold those memories tight. You and Abbey are in our thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time. Big hugs - Mike & Jean Bevan. ❤️❤️❤️

    While it may be several years since I've seen Andrew, he was still family and a branch of our tree has fallen. Breaks my heart for a life taken too soon. Sending so much love and prayers to those left behind to miss Andrew so much. Love Traci Carey-Gothreau and family xo

    If there is such a thing as a beautiful obituary, this is it. I have been thinking of you all and my heart has been hurting for you. If only there was a way to ease the suffering. I can only pray that in time, the precious memories and the love you have shared will bring your hearts some peace. Please know you are loved. I wish we could be there in person for Andrew's celebration of life but we are certainly going to be there in spirit. Love and hugs to you all. Jodi & Kevin Heidinger Xoxo
