1997 - 2021


Scarborough – Andrew Roger Rathmell, age 23, much-loved son and brother, died on Sunday, April 11, 2021. We lost Andrew when he succumbed to depression and took his own life.

Andrew was born in Austin, Texas on August 20, 1997 and moved to Scarborough, Maine when he was 1 month old. In 2015, he graduated from Scarborough High School and then went on to attend Brandeis University, where in 2019, he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Biology and Biology.

Andrew grew up with his younger sister, Sylvia, sharing silliness, meals around the table and Swedish celebrations. He was an avid gamer, enjoying computer games, board games and card games with family and friends.  Andrew was also fond of cooking and food, making his own ice cream recipes and perfecting roasted Brussels sprouts. He enjoyed being with family and taking trips, including a cruise to Alaska, biking and kayaking in Sweden and Norway, hiking and biking at National Parks and visits to family in Sweden and all over the United States. Andrew was kind, helpful, intelligent and funny.

Andrew and I were in the same multiage class in middle school for 2 years. His humor and commentary always lightened the mood and had me thinking from new perspectives. After middle school, Andrew and I’s paths didn’t cross much, but I remember him as a smart, inquisitive, genuine and thoughtful young man. I’m deeply crestfallen in hearing of his passing, as I was so certain even at that age, that Andrew would move on to change the world around him for the better. I wish he had more time. His unique take on things can’t be replicated. He will be missed on this earth, but his spirit lives on in our remembrance of this bright young person. I hope more can be done for men’s mental health as a society and community. My deepest possible condolences go out to Andrew’s friends and family. I’m sorry there’s not much I can say to lesson the grief I’m sure you are all feeling at such a time. Just know that your community stands with you to support you all in our thoughts and hopes for the future ❤️
