Samuel P. Andrews, 14, of Hanson died on May 11, 2016. He was born March 5, 2002. Sam was the loving son of Philip J. Andrews of Hanson, Melissa M. Andrews and her partner Jared Royse of Chelmsford. He also leaves behind his loving sister Abigail Andrews of Hanson and his younger siblings, Logan Gonyea, Ella and Jay Royse of Chelmsford.
Sammy was an eighth grader at Hanson Middle School.
He was a rambunctious boy that loved riding ATVs, dirt bikes and an occasional lawn mower. He took many family trips to Vermont. Most recently he went on an RV trip across the Southwest states. As most kids his age, he liked playing video games, hanging out with his friends and country music. He was known to have an ungoverned sense of humor. He was happy and proud to be a trusted helper to his grandmother and especially being rewarded with a brownie (without nuts) or a very large bowl of ice cream.
Sammy’s presence brought true joy to everyone who loved him, a sensitive soul who asked for so little but gave so very much.
In addition to his parents and siblings, he leaves by his grandmothers: Phyllis M. Andrews of Hanson, Sandra Andrade of New Bedford and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Visiting hours will be held from 2 to 6 p.m., on Sunday, May 15 in the Blanchard Funeral Chapel, Plymouth Street (Route 58 at the rotary) Whitman. His funeral service will be held at 11 a.m., Monday, May 16 in the Chapel. Following the service, Sammy will be laid to rest beside his Grandpa at Fern Hill Cemetery in Hanson.
