Andrew Durand Obituary

Guilderland - Andrew Durand, 30, of Guilderland, passed away on Wednesday, August 31, 2022, at Albany Medical Center.

He was born in Rostov-On-Don, Russia and is the devoted son of Anna Durand and the late Thomas J. Durand. He is the dear brother of Thomas V. Durand.  Andrew is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends. 

Andrew was a graduate of Guilderland High School and Hudson Valley Community College with a Paramedic Degree. He had been working on a degree in nursing at Maria College.  Andrew served in the U.S. Marine Corp as a firefighter with tours of duty in Kuwait and Iraq. A natural caregiver, he was employed as a paramedic with Mohawk Ambulance in Schenectady. Andrew was a talented musician and composer. He loved reading, sports, nature and spending time with family and friends. 

Relatives and friends are invited to visit with Andrew's family on Tuesday from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Cannon Funeral Home, 2020 Central Ave., Colonie. Friends are invited to gather on Wednesday afternoon at 12:45 at the entrance of Saratoga National VA Cemetery, 200 Duell Road, Schuylerville.  Military Honors will commence at 1:00 with a brief prayer to follow.

"We remember Andy as a skilled, compassionate and competent provider. But more importantly, we remember him as a kindhearted, goofy, and thoughtful friend. Walking into a station where Andy was on shift was filled with energy, laughter and charisma, even on the worst days. Andy helped so many people through their hardest days, and did so with a rare warmth and authenticity."

In lieu of flowers (due to cemetery floral restrictions), a memorial gift may be made to the U.S. Marine Corps Honor Guard or Nativity of the Mother of God, 617 Sand Creek Road, Albany.
