Andrew St. Louis
Andrew St. Louis, 37, who resided in Saranac Lake, passed away unexpectedly Monday, March 29, 2021, in Buffalo.
He was born in Lake Placid July 4, 1983. He attended Lake Placid Elementary School and Lake Placid Middle-High School. After graduation he attended SUNY Canton.
At the time of his passing, Andrew was the assistant superintendent at Craig Wood Golf Course. Before Craig Wood, Andrew worked for Hulbert’s Supply.
Andrew loved fishing, golfing, baseball and hockey. The Yankees, Bruins and Raiders were his favorite teams. Andrews love for the game of hockey began when he was 5 years old. His Squirt, Pee-Wee and Midget teams each made it to the state finals. Andrew played four years for the Lake Placid Blue Bomber high school team. One of the years he helped advance the team to the New York state final four. After graduation, he continued on with his hockey career at SUNY Canton and then on to play for the Jr. B Islanders in Ganaoque, Ontario, Canada. Andrew also played golf, baseball and soccer in school.
Andrew’s love for hockey grew even more when he started coaching his son Carson at the age of 5. He coached him through his Mini Mites, Mites, Squirts and Pee Wee years. Over the years he coached Saranac Lake Mites, the Sara-Placid Squirts, the ’08 ADK 46ers and the ’08 St. Lawrence Steel teams. This year’s ’08 St. Lawrence Steel Pee Wee team has advanced to the New York state finals, where they will go in April. Last year’s team also advanced to the states but due to COVID was unable to attend. He also coached Lake Placid High School baseball for four years, as well as youth baseball in Saranac Lake.
Andrew is survived by the love of his life, Shelly, and his two children Carson and Lexi. He is also survived by his parents Shari and Marty St. Louis and his brother Matt (Lauren), and nephew and niece Olivia and Jaxson. Other special people in his life were Shelly’s parents Theresa and Al Daunais, along with his uncle Michael St. Louis (Sharon), his aunt Laura Peryea (Larry) and aunt Karen Preston (Terry).
