SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – We are devastated to report to you today the tragic loss of another one of Shrewsbury”s fine young men, taken from us all way before his time. Shrewsbury High School Junior Andy Reese, of 8 Alden Ave, lost his life this morning in an automobile accident in Boylston early this morning. Andy was deeply loved and respected by all who knew him, as a leader among his peers, an outstanding athlete, and fine human being.
He was a fantastic basketball player, following proudly in the footsteps of his brother Colby, but also showed his stuff on the golf course, where he was instrumental in winning the State Championship last year for Shrewsbury High School. Principal Brian Reagan notified the students this morning, and all SHS parents were notified a few moments ago. SHS students have been given the opportunity to gather together and talk about their thoughts and memories of this great guy. Grief counseling is being made available at the High School at this time.
This comes as many in Shrewsbury are still recovering from the loss of yet another one of our native sons Justin Onorato, barely two months ago, and this will surely hit just as hard.
More details will be available shortly. In the interim, we send our sincere condolences to his parents, Darrell and Lisa, to Colby their extended family, to all his friends and those who loved him.
Update: According to the Boylston Police Department, and witnesses on the scene, the accident occurred at 5:50AM this morning, when the 2002 Honda Accord suddenly veered off the road and struck a tree on Central Street, approximately 2/10th of a mile southeast of Woodland Estates. He was transported by Boylston EMS to a helicopter landing site in Northboro, where he was moved by Life Flight helicopter to UMASS Medical Center. He succumbed to his injuries shortly thereafter.
Update: The Junior class has invited all Shrewsbury High School Students to wear Red tomorrow, the color of the Junior Class, in Andy’s honor.
