R.I.P Andrew Schwiesow – 8/28/85 – 9/18/15

We would like to take this opportunity to address a tragedy that recently struck one of our members.  Andrew Schwiesow had been a member of CrossFit Verve since 2011 and on September 18th, 2015 Andrew passed away unexpectedly.  In case you did not know Andrew personally, I would like to include his obituary from his family so you can get a glimpse into who he was.  There, of course, was so much more to Andrew.  If you have any fun memories of Andrew, please share them in the comments.

*The details for his memorial today are included as well. You can view the obituary in its entirety here.

“Andrew was born in 1985 to Dave and Gloria Schwiesow and grew up in Littleton, CO. He was joined by his younger sister, Laura, in 1988. Andrew graduated from Heritage High School in 2004. He went on to attend the University of Wyoming and Metro University, graduating with a mechanical engineering degree in 2010. He was currently employed at Lockheed Martin. He met Meg Zarlengo in 2008, and they had two beautiful children, Bella (3) and Charlie (1).

Andy was an easy going boy who loved Legos, blocks, and building anything he could get his hands on. He loved playing outside and camping, especially with his Scout Troop 114. Andy became an Eagle Scout in 2004. His teenage years were filled spending most of his time with his best friends from church. As an adult, Andy was extremely involved with Crossfit and took great pride and pleasure in physical fitness.

Andy was a devoted father, son, brother, and grandson. He is survived by his two children, Bella and Charlie; parents, David and Gloria Schwiesow; sister, Laura Schwiesow; grandparents, Mary and Glen Ferns; aunt and uncle, Laura and Ron Black; and preceded in passing by his grandparents, Harry and Shirley Schwiesow.

A celebration of Andrew’s life will be held at 1pm on Friday, September 25, 2015, at Littleton United Methodist Church, 5894 S. Datura Street, Littleton, CO 80120.

Donations may be made to a scholarship fund for Bella and Charlie Schwiesow, in care of Littleton United Methodist Church. Please note “Bella and Charlie Schwiesow fund” in the memo line.

    Verve will miss you, Andy. I remember one of the first swim WODs I attended, you showed up in a bright neon speedo LOL You always had a way to stand out, and made people laugh 🙂
    My sincere thoughts and prayers go out to the Schwiesow family.
