Andrew Robert Clark
June 8th, 1983-February 3rd, 2021
It is with our deepest sadness that we announce the passing of our dear Andrew at age 37 on February 3rd 2021 in Toronto. Andrew was born in Mississauga to Mary-Jane Taylor and Robert Clark. Andrew was father to Matthew Swinton, brother to Rebecca Morrison (Matt), Susanne Taylor (Anthony) and David Taylor (Pia). Beloved Uncle of Cody, Sara, Ryon, Molly and Wesley. Predeceased by Step-Father Charlie Taylor. Andrew was a free-spirited loving man who wore his heart on his sleeve. He loved music, travel and was happiest among his family and friends.
As a child Andrew was a very fast runner who excelled in track and field and also aspired to be a pilot. In his later years he became a skilled welder and was well known for his participation in the music community. One thing that remained constant was his unique fondness for snakes, and snakes named Jake, of which he owned several. Andrew’s deep spirituality lead him backpacking through North and South America, Europe and Asia. He had the gift of making new friends wherever his journeys lead him. He will be forever loved and missed by many.
“There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.”
No visitation or service will be held at this time. A public memorial is intended to be held at a later date.

Our sympathy and condolences to all of Andrew’s family and friends at this devastating time. It has been many, many years since we last saw Andrew, but remember him coming over to our place after school on occasion when we lived in Tecumseh (we were next door neighbours to Mary Taylor.) Our daughter Kate remembers him fondly. Our thoughts are with everyone at this sad time. May his memory be a blessing.
Very sorry for your loss. Taken far too soon. 🙁
My heart breaks for Andrew, all of his family and most especially a young man who has lost more than he will ever know. May everyone find their healing in time. Know that there are those that will always remember how great a father Andrew was.
Our deepest condolences to Andrew’s family. To his parents: your son was one of the most warmest humans I’ve ever met. He was kind, open and vulnerable. Know that you raised a beautiful human being that touched many, many people. We are with you in prayer & love. ❤️

I am so saddened to hear of this loss.
My deepest condolences to all and prayers and blessings to help you through this loss.
Good luck bud on your next journey. I know you will do just fine. See you soon.
We crossed paths earlier in life as neighbours, across from George’s Square. You were of principal and adventure. You were protective of family and people you cared about. A good person.
I’m sorry to come across this news and hope your family finds peace.
Dearest Mary-Jane and Beckie, I only heard about the terrible news today and my heart is breaking for you. I fondly remember Andrew as a very kind and lovely boy. We lived very near you many years ago in Oakville. May God ease the burden of your pain.
