Andrew Heath McWilliams, 36, of Darien, CT died suddenly and way too soon on February 4, 2017. He leaves behind the love of his life and wife of 8 years Kelley and his three children Tanner, 6, Mackenzie, 4, and Paige, 18 months. He centered a vast network of extended family and a formidable group of friends. Andrew (the Tuna) could walk into a room and immediately transform it into a place where you wanted to be. He had boundless energy and an infectious sense of humor. Second to family was sports… playing sports, watching sports, and talking about sports. The New York Football Giants just lost their most ardent fan! A magnificent host and amazing chef, Andrew made their home the destination of choice for gatherings of family and friends. Andrew was born April 15, 1980 in Essex Fells, NJ to Alexander (Sandy) McWilliams and Jane Sala McWilliams. He graduated from West Essex High School in 1998 where he excelled as a student-athlete and went on to earn a B.A. in History from Colgate University and played varsity football. Andrew began his career in the financial services industry with Chapdelaine, moved to Creditex, and was a bond broker for Tullett Prebon in New York at the time of his death. Surviving Andrew in addition to his wife, children and friends are his father and mother, step mother Cindy McWilliams, brother Alex and his wife Kim McWilliams of Chatham. NJ, brothers Thomas and James McWilliams of Basking Ridge, NJ, and nephews and niece Alexander IV, Tucker, and Madeline of Chatham, NJ as well as in-laws Dick and Dotty Krant and brother-in-law Trip Krant of Osterville, MA. Funeral services will be held on Thursday, February 9 at 11:00am at St Luke's Episcopal Church in Darien, CT followed by a private family internment. An education fund has been established for Andrew and Kelley's children. Checks can be mailed to: McWilliams Education Trust c/o Rachel Zarghami, Esq. Cummings & Lockwood LLC P. O. Box 120 Stamford, CT 06904 Or contributions can be made online via McWilliams Education Trust www.lawrencefuneralhome.com
