In loving memory of Andrew Heathcote who sadly passed away on 12th April 2021.

Andrew was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer in early February and when the doctors realized that it was terminal and inoperable in March, he was moved to the Rowans Hospice where he spent the last weeks of his life. He received amazing care from the staff at the Rowans who ensured he was kept comfortable and treated with dignity.

Andrew touched the lives of many and we invite those people to share their memories and photos of him below. The family have already added a few of their favourites to this page for others to enjoy.

His funeral service was held at 11.30 a.m. on Monday 10th May 2021 at The Oaks, Havant Crematorium. Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties at The Oaks, the service was not recorded. The link to the photographs that were shown during the personal reflection is:

Donations, if desired, can be made to The Rowans Hospice via the JustGiving link on this page. Alternatively, cheques, made payable to the charity may be sent c/o Lee Fletcher Funeral Services.

Devastated to learn of the passing of Andrew, he was such a kind and lovely man that gave so much to so many. Boys will always remember him teasing Matt at Parkruns. He will be greatly missed. Thinking of Margaret, Karen and Laura. Xx

Andrew was someone who made parkrun special and we’ll fondly remember his cheers of encouragement, humour and broad smile. It has been a privilege to know him, and our thoughts and prayers are with Margaret, Karen and Laura.

Hi Maggie, so sorry to hear what happened to your Andrew, I only met him once or twice, so young, friendly and full of energy. Ha, he told me kids can't cross the road on their own til they're 8, seemed like forever when mine were babes but time flies!! We were so lucky to catch Jo's early, and managed to nurse her back to some normality and I lost Daz my best friend aged 31; so I have an idea what you have been through. Our thoughts are with you my darling and I always owed you for the exam coaching :) but if there is anything I can do for you please shout or if you ever need a chat. All our love, thoughts and prayers for the Future. Mark and Jo 07878780858

Very sad to be saying goodbye to you today Andrew. We met through parkrun and we will always remember your cheeky words of encouragement as a marshal and the big grin that followed them.

Rest in peace Andrew.

Love John & Vicki

So sad that Andy was taken far too soon. We shared so many happy memories together, from our time at RAF Honington over 30 years ago, to meeting from time to time over the years. He was a true friend, who will be sorely missed.
Love
Myriam, Ian, Emma & Jack xxxx
