Remembering Andrew Sweet


“Andrew was a great guy, the best thing about him is that he used to tell me some funny jokes. I used to ask him ‘What’re you going to do to the bus now?’ and he said ‘Gun it’, that means he would put the foot down.”
– Ian Morhun

Merrimu would like to remember Andrew Sweet, who passed away suddenly in December 2013. He was Merrimu’s longest serving staff member and a dear friend to the staff and people we support. Andrew was loved for his sense of humour and his way of treating everyone with respect and dignity. He was dedicated to his work at Merrimu and had recently taken on extra responsibility after he was promoted to Team Leader. Merrimu shares the sadness and passes their sympathy to Andrew’s two adult daughters, his parents and family. He will be missed by all.
