Along with Paula, his wife of many years, Andre enjoys spending time outdoors on their farm which they share
with their dogs, chickens, Scotch Highland cattle, and a variety of New Hampshires indigenous wildlife species. Paula loves to grow a variety of vegetables and berries in her extensive gardens. Andre is in the process of conquering the states many 4,000 foot peaks and hopes his body parts hold out long enough to accomplish this task. Hunting and fishing is another one of his passions and when fall comes, he is known to sneak into the woods in pursuit of feather and fur whenever time allows. Andre is very grateful that his children have all settled within the state and that he gets to spend so much time with them and his seven grandchildren. They definitely help keep him active and in shape.
