Obituary of Andrew Thomas Chasnis
Andrew Thomas Chasnis, beloved father, brother, and friend, passed away Wednesday, January 3, 2024 at his home. He was born April 26, 1962 in Saginaw, son of the late John J. and Mary Louise (Collison) Chasnis. Andy graduated from Arthur Hill High School and went on to attend Lake Superior State College. He returned home to Saginaw where he finished his Associate’s Degree at Delta College. Andy began his career working with Saginaw County for over 20 years. He then worked maintenance for property management until his health no longer permitted.
Andy enjoyed many things in life but nothing gave him greater joy than being a dad. His son Patrick was his best friend and gave him a greater purpose in life. The two spent as much time as possible at their property in the woods where Andy had built a cabin. They enjoyed hunting, fishing, and cooking together, as well as working on classic cars. The unconditional love Andy had for his son was immeasurable.
Andy thrived on helping others and his generosity extended to family and friends. He had the kindest and most gentle heart. Andy had a larger than life personality with a sense of humor to match. To know him was to love him and many people did. We all lost a small piece of ourselves when we lost Andy.
Left to cherish his memory are his son, Patrick Chasnis; brothers, John (Cilla) Chasnis, Art (Retia) Chasnis, Jim (Shelly) Chasnis, Bob (Heidi) Chasnis, and Bill (Cheryl) Chasnis; sisters, Paula, (Gary) Larson, Peggy Chasnis, and Phyllis (Rick) Meeth; Patrick’s mother, Mary Beth Chasnis; and many special nieces, nephews, and cousins.
In addition to his parents John and Marylu, Andy was preceded in death by his sister and brother-in-law, Mary Jo and Jerry Lutz.
