FRAMINGHAM – Our beloved son, grandson, brother and friend, Andre Cassiano Rubert died unexpectedly, at the age of 20, on January 1, 2022. 

Born in Curitiba, Parana Brazil he was the cherished son of Danielle Cassiano Fitts and her husband Tim Fitts of Framingham and Wilson Rubert of Brazil.  

Andre attended Framingham Schools and graduated from Keefe Technical High School in 2020. 

Following graduation, he began work with DC Electric in Hopkinton where he enjoyed learning the trade and looked forward to becoming a Journeyman Electrician one day.

Andre’s good attitude and likable personality helped make him the man he was.

He enjoyed being with his group of close friends and family, gathering frequently at his home in Framingham. But most of all, Andre shared a special bond with his 5-year-old little brother, TJ.  Andre enjoyed playing with him, picking him up and twirling him around or jumping out of a dark doorway to spook him.  Their play gave their mother endless joy with an occasional “Andre careful please!” mixed in.

Andre, you are in our hearts forever.  We love you forever.

Besides his beloved parents and brother, Timothy N. Fitts, Jr., he is survived by his grandparents, Sandra and Geoffrey Fitts of Sarasota, FL and Ivair e Irineu Cassiano of Campo Grande, MS-Brazil.      

Relatives and friends are kindly invited to attend his visiting hours on Sunday, January 9, 2022 from 11-2 PM at the Norton Funeral Home, 53 Beech St. (corner of Union Ave.), Framingham. 

People are welcome to attend services on Monday on, January 10, 2022 at 9 AM at Plymouth Church, 87 Edgell Rd., Framingham Centre.  The service will also be live streamed for those that prefer additional Covid precautions related to a public gathering.  For those in attendance, masks are of course required.
