Andrii Olexandrovich Kochetkov - July 23, 1980 - July 24, 2023

Andrii Olexandrovich Kochetkov, a charismatic and determined individual, passed away unexpectedly on July 24, 2023, in Sayreville, New Jersey. Born on July 23, 1980, in Kyiv, Ukraine, he lived a life full of energy and enthusiasm. Andrii's vibrant presence and indomitable spirit touched the lives of those around him, leaving an enduring legacy of joyfulness and love.

Growing up in Kyiv with his parents Oleksander and Valentina Kochetkov, Andrii faced challenging circumstances with unwavering resilience. He shared an unbreakable bond with his brother Sasha and spent countless summers at their grandparents' house in Hlevakha on the outskirts of Kyiv. These moments were treasured opportunities for family farming in the garden and relishing the fruits of their labor in their grandmother Nina's kitchen.

After the fall of the Soviet Union in '91, Andrii's parents emigrated to Germany in search of better opportunities. This experience fostered his love for travel and ignited a deep curiosity about different cultures and people. After returning to Ukraine, Andrii pursued higher education at Kyiv National Linguistic University.

Around nine years ago, Andrii embarked on a new chapter in his life by coming to the United States. He worked as a mechanical/HVAC contractor, dedicating himself to his craft while sending most of his earnings back home to support his family. His impeccable work ethic and extensive knowledge made him an invaluable asset on various projects. Supervisors admired his leadership qualities while colleagues respected and praised him for his exceptional skills.

Andrii nurtured a dream of starting his own business — a testament to his entrepreneurial spirit. His aspirations were so tangible that they promised to become a reality sooner rather than later. Regrettably, fate intervened and abruptly put an end to his ambitions.

The Russian invasion of Ukraine deeply affected Andrii, as it posed a direct threat to his family's safety and made it increasingly difficult for him to stay in the United States. Despite the encouragement from his parents and friends who were fighting on the front lines, he longed to do more and yearned to be closer to his loved ones. Andrii's unwavering love for his family was evident in every conversation, as he shared endless stories about his son Roma.

Andrii is survived by his beloved parents Valentina and Oleksander, his cherished brother Sasha, and his adored son Roma. At just 10 years old, Roma is already making waves as a talented hockey player in Denmark. Andrii took immense pride in Roma's achievements, constantly missing him whenever they were apart but finding solace through countless hours spent playing phone app games together.

Andrii Olexandrovich  Kochetkov will be remembered as a passionate individual who pursued excellence in all facets of life. His zest for adventure and unwavering dedication to family serve as a reminder of the importance of love and resilience. While we mourn his untimely departure, let us celebrate the remarkable journey that Andrii led and honor the profound impact he made on everyone fortunate enough to have known him.

May Andrii rest in eternal peace, forever embraced by the love and memories he leaves behind.
