By on February 1, 2018

Andrew Joseph Boutot, 56, known by many as “Drew” passed away on January 26, 2018. He was born in Jamaica, NY on August 4, 1961 to Mary and Ben Boutot. He was a 1979 graduate of Manteo High and was a carpenter and painter by trade.

Andrew loved music, his all-time favorites were RUSH and Lynard Skynard. He also loved astronomy and anything to do with science. All that knew him, know he lived his life on his own terms and in his own way.

Knowing he passed away peacefully in his sleep is all we could have wanted for him.

Andrew is loved and remembered by his three sisters; Jeanne Hart & husband Jay of Kill Devil Hills, NC, Diane Overman and husband Carl of Harbinger, Lisa Simpson and husband, Larry also of Kill Devil Hills. Also surviving is Drew’s father, Ben Boutot and wife Betty Jo of Ft. Myers Fl.; nephews, Joseph Scarborough, David Scarborough, and niece, Katherine Heroux.

Andrew was predeceased by his loving Mother, Mary Boutot who we know was anxiously awaiting him with open arms, along with his grandparents, George and Madeleine Moen. Andrew will also be remembered by his uncles, aunts, and cousins, along with his many friends who all loved him.

    I’ve known the Boutot’s most of my 50 years. Andrew and his sisters were some of the sweetest people I have ever known. I haven’t seen them since we left home in ’87. I remember his coin collection when he was a teen…I have never spent a coin without looking at it, thanks to him. I haven’t found the rare one, but have discovered some neat finds. RIP Drew, I know your mom was waiting. She loved all of you so much. Kitty Hawk Elem. wouldn’t have been the same without that family!!
