Andreas - an Arctic Breeze

An Arctic Breeze has taken its last breath.

Publisert

After a long fight against cancer, Andreas H. Höchli-Theus died among his family in Switzerland the 3rd of June. Andreas was a familiar face in Longyearbyen. Together with his wife Esther, he spent several seasons exploring Spitsbergen on board their sailing boat Skadi. All in all Esther and Andreas spent many years at Spitsbergen! They loved the Arctic wildlife, remoteness and scenery. Often they brought family and friends, giving them rare, lifetime experiences. They even made a movie, which was shown at the cinema in their home town in Switzerland. Esther and Andreas also stored Skadi in Longyearbyen a few winters, giving them an excellent excuse to visit the Arctic during snow season as well. With kindness, generosity, espresso and Swiss chocolate – they gained a lot of friends. We were always greeted with big hugs, and enjoyed their company both in Ny-Ålesund, Longyearbyen, Norway and Switzerland. We were hoping to meet again, but unfortunately cancer was in a hurry. Our deepest love and condolences goes to his wife Esther, children and grandchildren. Safe journey, Captain Andreas! Thank you for everything.
