In Celebration of

Andrew "Andy" Sydney DeRoos

March 23, 1967 -  January 23, 2023

It is with deep and heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of the brave and heroic Andy DeRoos after a courageous six-week battle in the hospital.

Forever beloved husband and best friend of Michelle and incredibly loving and proud father of Dylan and Lauren (predeceased). Dear son of Andy and Helen DeRoos and cherished brother of Darren DeRoos. Treasured brother-in-law to Kim DeRoos, Melody Chapman, and Shawn and Joely Lang. Loving and caring uncle to Colton and Sydney DeRoos, Tara, Logan and Noah Chapman, and Paris and Reese Lang. Predeceased by a very special mother-in-law, Noreen Lang.

Andy was a well-respected and dedicated member of the Mississauga Fire & Emergency Services for over 32 years & retired as a Captain in 2021.

Andy will be remembered for his passion for life. His kindness, grace and gentle heart will not be forgotten. He was fiercely loyal and protective of his loved ones and many, many friends. His bright smile, infectious laugh and big bear hugs will be missed by all. His motto in life was “It’s not where you are, it’s who you are with.”

In lieu of flowers, donations to Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, Princess Margaret Hospital or a charity of choice would be appreciated.

A Celebration of Life to be announced at a later date.
