Andre Maurice Grace, 46, of Manassas, VA, passed July 4, 2019, in Glassboro, NJ. He was born on December 23, 1972.
Andre graduated from Stonewall Jackson High School in Manassas, VA in 1991. He honored our country with eight years of distinction as an Army 88M Motor Transport Operator. The patriotism he learned in the Army never left him. Andre savored the moments and did it with a smile. He was a good-natured jokester that enjoyed going rounds with family and friends about anything, but especially sports. Andre was an enthusiastic sports fan through-and-through for his favorite teams: the Dallas Cowboys, the Duke Blue Devils and the Philadelphia 76’ers.
