Andrew Thomas Charette

Age 31, of Lansing, MI, passed away on November 29, 2019. He was born August 15, 1988, in Lansing, MI.

It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of our beloved son and brother, Andrew. From a young age, he was a wise and deep thinker. During his time in school, a teacher once told his mother that although she was looking into the eyes of a cute, young face, she felt as though she was talking to an old soul. He remained that way throughout his life. Andrew had a one-of-a-kind sense of humor to those who knew him well. He was a minimalist and did not need many “things” to make him happy.

Andrew will be forever remembered by his mother, Marcia Besonen, father Dennis Charette (Dianne Emery), sister Kristin Charette (Michael Moore), special Aunt and Uncle, Jane and Tom Sime, grandmother Patricia Ann Charette, and several cousins. He was preceded in death by grandparents Arnold and Marjorie Besonen, his grandfather, Gerald Charette, and his uncle, Patrick Charette. We pray he is reunited with his beloved cousin Tommy Sime, who we also lost far too soon.

The day Andrew died a piece of us went with him. He will forever be in our hearts.

A private memorial service will be held in August in Keweenaw County. Memorial contributions may be made to the Lansing City Rescue Mission.

Andrew, this world was never meant for one as beautiful as you. We love you.

Mom and Kristin
