Friend celebrates life of Andy Rose

The U.S. Coast Guard said a fisherman discovered Rose's body Thursday afternoon, two days after fellow boater Bryan Huff's body was found.

After three weeks of searching the waters of Lake Erie, the body of a missing boater was recovered Thursday afternoon.

Officials identified the body is that of 33-year-old Andrew Rose. It's a reality that's hard to process for people who knew him.

"It's still hitting you, it's hits you in waves," said Steve Reamey, friend of Andrew Rose.

The U.S. Coast Guard said a fisherman discovered Rose's body Thursday afternoon, two days after fellow boater Bryan Huff's body was found.


The males along with Amy Santus and Paige Widmer went on a fishing trip April 17, but had not returned later that night.


Officials recovered the bodies of Santus and Widmer within a day the group was reported missing.


The recoveries close a painful chapter for family and friends, who have been waiting for answers on where their loved ones were and what happened.


"With us not knowing the circumstances, what happened, what were the circumstances around this, they've kind of come to grips with it. I mean, we've all kind of come to grips with it," said Reamey.

Reamey said instead of grieving his friends death, he chooses to pay tribute to his life.

Reamey adds plans are underway for a get together at Burger Bar 419 on Heatherdowns Boulevard Friday evening at 7 p.m.
