In 2016, they got married and welcomed their 5th child together, Kylie King. In 2017 he started working for HomeFront (Non-Profit Organization). It was there that he felt like he had a purpose.

Andre also remained a father and fixture to his step children from his first marriage, Ervin, leisha and Cinquitta and he sadly will be missed by them.
Besides spending time with his family, Andre enjoyed sports. He was a die-hard Eagles fan who hated the Cowboys and will hate them in the hereafter. He enjoyed barbecuing on a propane grill and the thought of bringing his family together. And no matter what he was dealing with in his life, when people would ask how he was doing he would say, “I’m blessed.”
