With deep regret, IAFF Local 1258 Moses Lake and the Washington State Council of Fire Fighters report the death of member Andrew Deering. Andrew passed away on September 10, 2020.
Andrew served as a fire fighter/EMT for the Moses Lake Fire Department. To those who knew him, Andrew was a fiercely loyal friend who gave to others selflessly. His “B-shift” crew always had a fun nickname for Andrew, often referring to him as “Baby Loaf,” “White Mocha,” and “Magic Man.” He was referred to as a calm in the storm while on scene with patients. Everyone around knew he was the guy they could call on. His love of his beloved Seahawks and disdain for all things vinegar will be remembered by all. Andrew was always found goofing around and outside playing with his kids. He never lost his fun-loving ways, was always a big kid at heart, and his wife, children, and family were the center of his life.
A memorial service was held on Saturday, September 19, 2020 in Moses Lake, WA.
