Obituary of Andrew Victor Mate Stockton
It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Andrew Victor Mate Stockton, 71, of Sussex on June 9th of 2022. Andrew was born in Sussex on March 24, 1951. He was the son of the Late Charles and Peggie (Mate) Stockton.
Andrew will be lovingly remembered by his three daughters, Kyla (Ryan) Muir, Sally (Derek) Parlee, and Jill Stockton (Nick) Wheaton, all of Sussex, NB; the mother of his children, Elizabeth Stuart; his grandchildren: Emma, Rhea, and Bria Muir; Ava and Lauren Parlee; and Lennon, Zoë, and Elyse Wheaton; his sisters: Susan (Dr. Peter) Brown of Cochrane, ON, and Jane Stockton (Dr. Kwasi) Ampofo of Toronto, ON; as well as his nephew and nieces: Michael (Christine) Brown, Sarah Brown, Emily Ampofo, and Thea (Dovreshin) MacRae; and his great niece and nephews: Ellie, Miles, and Harvey (children of Michael & Christine).
Andrew is predeceased by his parents.
Andrew was a devoted and proud father and grandfather who loved his family with his whole being. He leaves behind a legacy of faith, love, humility, kindness, and advocacy. Andrew, a Civil Engineering Technologist, worked as a well respected Building Inspector for the City of Moncton for over 40 years. Andrew was passionate about his profession and volunteered with the New Brunswick Building Officials Association (NBBOA) for many years. When Andrew wasn’t working, you could find him with his family on the beach in Alma, cheering them on at all their activities or taking in a Maple Leafs or Blue Jays game.
A special thank you to the entire Care Team at Serenacare in Moncton for their loving care and support over these last years. Also, the family would like to extend their sincerest gratitude to Diane and Amber, who cared for Andrew at home, our church family and our community who have shown so much love during these difficult times.
