Friends and family will gather to remember a young man killed in a devastating car crash in east London.
Cody Andrews was killed after a vehicle he was travelling in was struck at the intersection of Highbury Ave. and Dundas St. at around 1:55 a.m. on September 8th.
His family says he was an active young man, who enjoyed sports and his friends, “Cody’s big beautiful smile matched his amazing & lovable personality. He was a kind and generous young man and always put the needs of others before himself. Cody touched so many lives in his short time here; a wonderful friend to all who knew him.”
Visitation will take place for the 23-year-old on Tuesday from 7 to 9 p.m., and Wednesday from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. at Erb and Good Family Funeral Home in Waterloo.
The funeral will be held at St. Mark’s Catholic Church in Kitchener on Thursday at 11 a.m.
A GoFundMe fundraiser has been set up to help the family with expenses during their time of grief.
Four people were inside the vehicle when it was struck by a car travelling at speeds over 150 km/h. Passenger 46-year-old Jerry Pitre of London also died in the crash. Two others were injuried, and remain in Hospital. The sister of one of those injured has set up a GoFundMe fundraiser to help with his expenses while he recovers.
Late last week, London Police charged 31-year-old Scott Altiman in connection with the crash.
Altiman, who was the lone driver in the other vehicle, faces a total of eight charges, including impaired operation of a motor vehicle and criminal negligence causing death and bodily harm.
He remains in hospital in serious condition.
