Andrew was born on August 27, 1986 in Ogdensburg, a son of Dale Martin & Tina (Kendall) Renaud. He attended Ogdensburg Free Academy for his education and later received his GED. He enjoyed many different things in his life; such as working outside and making something beautiful that was lifeless, being around groups of people because he loved to see everyone smile, and doing whatever he had too to make his life the most positive it could be. He always wanted to have a different issue/item in front of him to fix or help with; he had a heart of gold that will be forever missed and cherished. Andrew had a work ethic that no one could understand, if he had something in his mind he wanted to accomplish, he did it with great stride and a smile on his face.
He was an avid Oakland Raiders football fan, enjoyed playing video games, spending time with his cousins.
