Andrew Rudolph Roethlisberger

Andrew Rudolph Roethlisberger, 27, of Marissa, IL; born on September 17, 1996 in Sparta, IL, the son of Andrew and Elizabeth (Heimsness) Roethlisberger; passed away on Monday, July 1, 2024 at Sparta Community Hospital.

Andrew enjoyed gardening, reading and going for rides in the car.  He was a man of faith and had trust in the Lord.  There were many health battles that Andrew faced.  Sometimes there was little hope given to him by his medical peers, but he always kept his faith with God.  God always answered him with a subtle sign of hope or unexpected, pleasant surprises. Andrew had a kind, soft-hearted soul that will be missed by all who knew him.

He is survived by his parents, Andrew and Elizabeth Roethlisberger of Marissa, IL and aunt, Sandra Roethlisberger of Marissa, IL.

Andrew was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Rudolph and Marion Roethlisberger; maternal grandmother, Phyllis Roberts; uncle, Robert Roethlisberger.

    Growing up with Andrew was an absolute pleasure. In highschool we were close friend’s he was the slick one of our group. He would make me laugh with his humor and also make me think when he would share a deep thought as he often had many. He was the one that came up with the name of our highschool group “The Misfits: Table Society”. Drew was someone who very much cared about the needs and wants of others before thinking of himself…..he taught me a lot of what it meant to be a friend and we often would consider each other “unofficial family”. I love ya Drew, a day hasn’t gone by where you haven’t been on my mind. My prayers and thoughts are with the whole family.
