Memorial donations are being accepted in the memory of lifelong Westchester resident Andrew J. Ciccarelli, who died at age 44 on March 19.
He was born on March 24, 1973 in Bronxville to Armand J. Ciccarelli, Jr. and Jane G. Farrell. He was raised and educated in Yonkers, attending P.S. 28, Hawthorne Middle School, and Gorton High School.
Andrew enjoyed spending time with his friends and family. As a youth, he enjoyed participating in the Boy Scouts and playing football for the Gorton Wolves, where he made numerous lifelong friends.
He loved animals, especially dogs, from Honey, the first dog he had as a child, to Cain, the dog he rescued, to Elsie, Cain's daughter. He was a loving person with a big heart and showed it by doing his best to be there for people around him who he saw needed help.
To Andrew, food was much more than just nourishment, it was something to be relished, and he enjoyed cooking for other people from the time he was a teenager. Finally, he loved getting tattoos and due to having friends in the tattoo business, got a wide variety of them during his lifetime.
He is survived by his brother, Armand J. Ciccarelli, III and his wife Sandra Sandoval and daughter Rose, of Arlington, VA, his girlfriend, Leslie Anne Silva, and her son Jason, of Yonkers, NY, as well as his mother of Yonkers and his father of Copake, NY.
Memorial donations may be made in his name to "Building Hope for the New Yonkers Animal Shelter" by mailing a check to P.O. Box 406, Yonkers, NY 10710, or by using the PayPal link found here
