Andy Faustin was born on May 4, 1987, in Newark, New Jersey to his parents, Vernio Faustin and the late Marialise Faustin. He primarily grew up in Irvington, New Jersey alongside his younger sister, Ludgina Faustin. He attended several schools including Sacred Heart School of Vailsburg, University Six School, and Union Avenue Middle School, from which he graduated in 2003. Afterwards, he completed high school, graduating from West Caldwell Vocational School.
The Faustin Family loved to watch wrestling as a whole. This left a lasting impact on Andy, who was eager to watch wrestling every week growing up. This included WWF, WWE, SmackDown, Monday Night Raw, and more. He brought wrestling from the TV screen to real-life by always play-fighting and performing wrestling moves on his father, mother, sister, and cousins. It’s safe to say that Andy always won those battles by having everyone tap out. He was indeed a winner and still holds a Championship Title in the Faustin household.
Andy also had a passion for music. If Andy didn’t announce himself, it was always known that he was home by the loud music coming from his room. And if anyone walked in, you would catch him rapping, singing, or jamming to his favorite tunes. He knew the lyrics to almost every song, along with the artists and title of the songs. And if Andy stepped out the house, his “Beats by Dre” headphones would always be with him. Music was his therapy; it truly made him happy.
Andy had a fun and playful personality. He was super nice and loved to laugh. If Andy was comfortable with you, he would crack jokes every chance he would get. It was especially a part of his “hi’s” and “goodbye’s” when talking to people. Thus, if Andy ever joked around with you, then it was known that he liked you. Consider it a blessing if you ever got to experience his goofy side along with his wild laugh.
When it comes to his immediate family, Andy was loving and protective. Whenever sickness or injury befell his parents or sister, Andy was there to help and ensure they were okay. He always insisted on being at every doctor’s appointment, taking mental notes and reminding them of what the doctor said. If he couldn’t make it, he would call instead to get all the details. If they were sad or had a problem, Andy would say “you could talk to me.” If they couldn’t physically do something, Andy would do it himself without any requests or questions asked. That’s just who he was: sweet, playful, energetic, loving, compassionate, and helpful.
On December 20, 2021, Andy unexpectedly passed away. He was only 34-years old. Andy is survived by his father, sister, and numerous family members. He was loved immensely and will continue to have a lasting effect on his family and friends. Andy had a big heart and will truly be missed.
