Andrew J. Nees, age 15 of Cloverdale went to be with the Lord Saturday June 27th, 2020.  He was born January 26th, 2005 in Greencastle to Michael and Jamie (Rose)Nees.

Andrew had a smile and laugh that lit up the room.  Andrew showed tremendous strength, courage, and determination as he fought his MEGDEL syndrome, a mitochondrial disease all of his life.  Andrew always amazed, as he was given a life expectancy of not making it to his fifth birthday; he inspired us everyday of his 15 years of being with us.
