Andrew Martin Leroy Fryberg was a Tulalip Tribal member who blessed us with his presence on August 10, 1999. He was a victim of the tragic school shooting that took place at Marysville Pilchuck High School on October 24, 2014, a day that impacted all of our lives forever. Andrew entered after fighting for his life into rest November 7, 2014.
Andrew was such an amazing and important person to his family. He was the first boy born into his family filled with girls that would do just about anything for him. Andrew was known for his one of a kind personality. He was always smiling, very outgoing, being over protective and caring, being an amazing friend, uncle, brother, and son.
Andrew was a natural born athlete and succeeded at basically everything he tried to do. He loved to play football, wrestling, riding quads, hanging out with friends, family dinners, watching his nieces and nephews and spending time out on the water. He also loved to take car rides with his sister Leila, as well as random rode trips with her.
Andrew Fryberg’s family expressed their gratitude for those who cared for him, as well as those who prayed and hoped for his recovery. “Our family is overwhelmed with the love and care that has been provided to our loved one during this time and you all will forever hold a special place in our hearts.”
“The Tulalip Tribes and Marysville will be forever changed as a result of the senseless and tragic incident,” said tribal spokeswoman Francesca Hillery. Andrew was a member of the American Indian Tulalip Tribes.
Andrew was blessed to share life with an extensive family and many friends who are left behind to mourn, reflect and honor the life of this awesome young man.
Andrew will be forever missed but never forgotten.
