SWAMPSCOTT - Andres Javier Llorente, born in Bogota, Columbia, on May 19, 1991, Andres joined his parents Lars and Joanne Llorente three months later, in Boston's North End. He took to the small apartment and city playgrounds until moving to Swampscott with her beautiful beaches.
A 2009 Swampscott High Graduate, Andres loved drumming in the school bands, the highlight coming as the band took to the field during halftime of the Big Blue's Superbowl victory at Gillette Stadium. His drumming talents brought him into Swampscott's youth rock 'n' roll scene. Over the years, he and his friends formed many groups, freely swapping players and styles just to play music together. He really enjoyed seeing all his friends come out when his band was playing at the Village Tavern in Salem.
After graduation, Andres worked in local restaurants and later as a sales person at the Guitar Center and associate manager at the T-Mobile store in Danvers. There he was known to be steady, reliable and courteous. In his free time he enjoyed spending time with his friends watching sports, concerts, and television original series. He had a love of travel from family vacations to Niagara Falls, Acadia National Park, Colorado, and Columbia and post-graduation trips to California and Europe. He never missed a good restaurant or the annual camping trip to Maine.
His family life centered on the traditions of holiday get-togethers, reunions, and the Annual Greylawn badminton tournament in Brunswick, Maine.
Andres left this life way too early, and will be sadly missed by his friends and family. Wishing we had many more years together, he leaves his parents; and siblings, Isabel, Amalia, and Christian; his grandmothers, Constance Quamo, and Joan Llorente; his aunts and uncles, James Lang and Stephanie Quamo, Russell and Paula Schneider, Peter Quamo, Lisa Llorente, Terry Grim and Renee Llorente, Renzo and Veronica Llorente, Andres F. Llorente; and of course the cousins, Valerie and Juliana Grim, Meghan and Ryan Schneider, and Aidan, Caleigh, Niamh, and Clare Lang.
Visiting Hours will be held at the Solimine Funeral Home, 67 Ocean Street, (Route 1A) Lynn, MA, Friday afternoon from 4 to 8 p.m. Memorial services are still being finalized. Arrangements, directions and guestbook at www.solimine.com.
