Andrew G. Whiting, 29, Woodstock, died unexpectedly Thursday, Oct. 15, 2015.
He was born July 29, 1986, to David and Sarah (Conway) Whiting in Woodstock.
He was a 2004 graduate of Woodstock High School. He had the kind of personality that could light up a room with just a glance and a smile. Those who knew him would recount his friendship, loyalty and genuine care for those he loved. He was extremely intelligent and witty. He enjoyed playing sports and excelled at wrestling. He was also an avid weightlifter. He loved his dogs. Most of all, he was a wonderful son, brother, grandson, nephew and cousin who loved his family and friends more than anyone will ever know.
