    The kindest, most thoughtful, fun and loving gentlemen we have had the privilege to call our friend. He is already missed so much. Life is not fair. Thoughts are with Judith, Paul, Lucy and Charlie. RIP Andrew.

  2. Dennis & Steve Bodenham says:

    Andy was such a great guy,so full of encouragement and Steve and I really appreciated his help during Steve’s time at University with Andy taking Paul and Steve around on all the England skeet selection shoots.His down to earth team talks with the boy’s if they had a bad day, and his encouragement and pride on getting them their England caps.
    He will be greatly missed by all of us.

    Andrew always made us smile, he told it how he saw it and was such a support for paul and many others. Never one to use many words when one or two did the job instead. Katy and I loved him dearly and will miss him and his banter out and about. Andrew also ran a lovely pheasant shoot and the time and commitment showed in his presentation of birds. Rest in peace andrew we all have fond memories and wherever you are now I bet they’ve learnt the ‘tudge way of communication’ by now.

    You always got a straight answer from Paul no messing about and he did not care about the language either.
    Love him or loath him you new exactly where you stood .
    I personally love the man and wish others could be so straight with people.
    I can only share your grief at this sad time ,
    Please accept my heart felt condolences to all the family… Roy Partridge

    We had the absolute privilege to know Andrew for many years and had the good fortune to join him on his highly successful mixed partridge and pleasant shoot many times. A firm Sgt Major when it came to running a beating line, a more humorous, kinder and more considerate person you could not hope to meet. Many people’s lives have been touched by his, and although they broke the mould when they made Tudgie, he is succeeded by a delightful family. The world is a sadder place without him.
