OBITUARIES:  (published July 18, 2019)

Andrew Michael Goldbranson
Andrew Michael Goldbranson, 19, of Darien, died July 10, 2019.
Andrew attended Webster University Conservatory of Theatre Arts where he was following his passion for acting and musical theatre. He shared his talent recently in the BAM Theatre production of “Legally Blonde” as Emmett.
   During his high school career at Hinsdale South, Andrew was very active in the fine arts and drama community. He had a knack for learning to play any instrument he picked up. He shared his instrumental, vocal and acting talent through his performances with marching band, jazz band and symphonic band, a capella and madrigal choirs, and improv groups and speech team. He and his friends started their band, Black Forest, enabling him to jam out and perform with some of his best friends. He embodied each role he was cast in, from LeFou in “Beauty & the Beast” to Protean in “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” to Melchior Gabor in “Springs Awakening” to Andre in “The Father” to Edna Turnblad in “Hairspray” to Michael in “Two Rooms.”
   He was preceded in death by his father, Eric Goldbranson; his brother, Matthew Goldbranson; his aunt, Gail Goldbranson; his cousin, Jaclyn Pari; and his grandparents, John and Mary Finigan and Kent and Vera Goldbranson.
   He is survived by his mother, Gloria; his sister, Megan; his aunts and uncles, Gregory and Mary Finigan, Gayle Finigan, Gary and Linda Finigan, Glenda and John Betit, Mark and Marybeth Goldbranson and Alison and Glen Pari; his cousins, Jennifer Finigan (Jake) Dukett, P.J.
