Family creates scholarship in memory of murdered son
By: Ronald Zajac Posted:02/06/99
 Andrew Moffitt's heart was bigger than the World Wide Web and now his legacy will help others follow their love of computers.
      The 23-year-old son of Paulette and Rodney Moffitt, of Brockville, was stabbed in the heart on December 23, as he tried to break up a fight at a student hangout in Ottawa.
      Now the family of the University of Ottawa computer engineering student is setting up a scholarship fund in his memory.
      “We can't accept what happened to Andy, to be slain the way he was,” his mother said Friday. “This is the only way that we can keep his memory alive forever. Something good has to come out of this.”
      The Andrew Moffitt Memorial Scholarship Fund will benefit Ontario students in computer or electrical engineering at the university. While family members are still deciding on the specific criteria for qualifying students, they want the scholarship to reflect Andrew's caring, giving spirit, said older brother Rod Jr., 27, a computer programmer at Nortel in Ottawa. more.
