Andres was born in San Miguel de Tucuman, in the northwest of Argentina. He studied engineering and architecture before transitioning to a career in computer systems analysis in Buenos Aires, Argentina and then Toronto, Canada. In later years he returned to his passion for design and renovation. He was known for his entrepreneurial spirit and visionary mindset, exemplified by his work on the housing and experiential living project “Villa Blanca” in Amaicha del Valle, Tucuman, Argentina a place that held great significance for Andres as it was where he spent summers with his family during his childhood.

Outside of work, Andres was an avid soccer fan and enjoyed playing goalie with a team of friends at Toronto’s Bickford Park. He loved engaging in debate on current world issues, particularly Argentine politics. He was an expert chess player, a dedicated chef in the kitchen, master Asador, as well as a talented artist and painter. He will be deeply missed by family, friends, and all who knew him.

In accordance with his wishes, no service will be held. A celebration of Andres’ remarkable life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations be made in his memory to the Canadian Cancer Society. These donations will serve as a meaningful tribute to Andres’ interest in research and science.
