Andy Abel 1962- 2009
through the pages of Socialist worker I have just learned of the shocking and sudden death of my friend and comrade Andy Able.
Andy was a diamond, a true socialist who despite his life long loyalty to the SWP retained a true belief in the vitality of a socialist vision which transcended narrow party loyalty. He was a real friend who would stick by his friends and comrades no matter what.
Although it is many years since we have been in regular contact Vicky and I valued our short time in Southampton, and Andy was a central part of making those years so good.
Our hearts and deepest condolences to Lorraine and to Andy's Family.
