After a long hard struggle with depression and anxiety, our beloved father, brother and son returned to his heavenly home on December 3. Born on July 26, 1981, Andre graduated from Upper Arlington High School in 2000, and from Ohio University with a Fine Arts degree in 2004. He married Lauren Williams in 2011, and loved being a father to his four children. He worked for VSP Vision Care. Andre was a creative person, using his talents to build and draw. He loved music, and loved to listen to many genres. He was a dedicated member of his church community, Veritas, on West Broad Street.
He is survived by his wife Lauren (nee Williams); his children Miles, Henry, Theodore and Eloise; his parents Gene and Sherry (Hall) Goubeaux; his siblings Renee Goubeaux and John Goubeaux, their spouses Robert Roeger (Renee) and Melanie Goubeaux (John); as well as many in-laws, uncles, aunts, nieces and nephews.
The Celebration of Life will take place at Veritas Community Church, 345 E. Second Avenue, Columbus, Ohio 43201, at 11:00 am on Saturday, December 11. Andre was passionate about helping men in The Refuge, a men’s addiction recovery program. In lieu of flowers, please donate to The Refuge, 12 S. Terrace Ave., Columbus, Ohio, 43204.
