On, Sunday June 7, 2020, the loving Family and Friends of Andrew James “Drew Bear” Cose II lost a piece of their hearts indefinitely upon learning of his untimely passing at the tender age of 22.
Our stellar multi-athlete and young professional experienced a heart attack while doing what he loved most, playing basketball with his friends. Armed with youth and ambition, Andrew was employed with Core Technologies while completing his final hours at Georgia State University. He was your future Petroleum Engineer.
Though he garnered attention and praise for his talents in almost any athletic activity, he was most proud of his membership on the Georgia Ballers Basketball Team and the Alpharetta Phoenix Rugby Club.
“Drew’ is an applaudable son, doting brother, adoring grandson, affectionate nephew, demonstrative cousin and convicted (boy)friend.
Andrew was truly our divine gift full of integrity, determination, humility and intellect. He lived his short life with style and charisma. And could cut-a rug like no other!
He is preceded in death by his maternal great grandparents Delitis Edwards and Milton Haydel. He leaves to cherish his memories his parents Latasha Patterson- Cose and Andrew James Cose Sr; his sister Alexia Jhanae Cose; his maternal grandparents Nathaniel and Geraldine Patterson; his paternal grandparents James A. and Barbara L. Cose; his aunts and uncles Quiana M. Patterson and Crystal Webster (Alan), Nancy Boswell (Robert), Pamela Garote (Daniel), Byron Stipe (Rina), Sonya Tate (Ira), Lisa Patterson, Detra Morris, Karen Young, Olivia Keller and Rodney Stipe; his cousins Indya Patterson, Alan Webster Jr., Bryce Webster and London- Sophia Webster. Andrew was also blessed with a most loving future life partner Pamela Cruz whom he shared the last year of his life.
There are no words to describe the pain that we feel, but we know that we are BLESSED. We are blessed with your presence, your golden spirit, your warm heart, your comedic character. Andrew you gave us a love that could never be replicated. You were too good for this life!! We will NEVER let your memory cease. From our hearts to yours…. Long Live King James Cose!!!
