Andre Lavelle Heard was the first born child and son of the late Sally Mae Anderson Heard and the late Charles Nelson Heard and the best big brother to Dawn Malynn Heard and Kelly Renee Heard and brother-cousin to Tabatha Anderson. Andre Heard was brought into this world on August 20, 1967 and exited this world at sunrise on Thursday, May 14, 2020 at the very early age of 52. Andrew attended, Everette J. Welch Elementary, Pleasant Run Jr. High, Northwest Sr. High and Mt. Healthy High School. Mt. Healthy is where he would for the greatest friendship of his life with his brother from another mother Ken Patrick. When Ken took a wife, Andre got a sister-In- law in Kelly Patrick. Andre's passions in life were family, photography, motorcycles, trucks and carsRacing cars! Love of family came from his mom Sally who was a nurse and cared for patients who became friends and family. His love of trucks from his dad Charles who was a truck driver. Andre's eye for photography polished by his Uncle James Byndon. The need for speed was all his own and he was one of the best and introduced and encourage so many to what is now a passion they shareRACING. Andre never married or had children of his own, but his sisters Dawn and Kelly gave his so many nieces and nephews that he truly loved and who loved him, he said he did not miss not having children of his own. Andre in 2012 decided to make his dreams a reality and became an owner operator/Over the Road Truck driver which took him all across these United States and he loved it. When he had down time he came home to visit with his sisters, nieces and nephews but most enjoyed the quiet and Nextflix and chill with his Aunt Betty Anderson and her perfect sandwiches as he called them or debating the bible and going to the gun range with his uncle James and with friends. While Andre spent most of his adult life on the road, behind the lens and on the racetrack, he made sure to stay grounded, and humble. If Andre needed guideance he often would call his Aunt Evelyn affectionately called Aunt Fibby who looked like his mom's twin who would in the same spirit of his late mother offer unconditional love and objective ear. Andre was known to be a gentle giant standing 6-01 in stature but had a quiet larger than life presence about him. He was an avid reader, and gentleman at all times and tested in the 6th grade at a genius level. Andre L. Heard aka Dredog left this life having made his dream a reality and living his very best life, but most important Andre left this knowing who he was, knowing he was loved by so many and knowing God as his Lord and Saviour.
