Curren CaplesCurren CaplesCurren Caples from team Mt. Dew at th 2017 Adog Day. It was a pleasure to shoot at the 2017 Adog Day in Burlington, VT. Andy was a good friend of mine since we were kids and I miss him everyday. We grew up deejaying together in Burlington. I played reggae and he played hip hop. He was forever a person who inspired the best out of the people around him and set the example. So honored to be a part of his memorial and it was so nice to see the legacy he has left for the future generations of deejays, skateboarders, snowboarders and artist.

Below is a little more about him from the Friends for A_Dog Association

DJ/Turntabalist Andy “A_Dog” Williams was the epitome of generosity, positivity and curiosity. His passion and innovativeness in music, skateboarding, and art earned him recognition as a musical talent and cultural icon. After Andy was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) in December 2012, his only possible cure was a bone marrow transplant. Because of Andy’s mixed ethnicity, he faced the seemingly impossible challenge of finding a bone marrow donor, with his odds of a match being 1 in 20 million.

After Andy’s diagnosis, his beloved community rose to the occasion by creating the group “Friends for A_Dog”. This group helped support him through benefits and bone marrow drives during his journey. With Andy’s passing in December 2013 from complications post-transplant, Friends for A_Dog (FFA_D) transitioned to become a non-profit to help carry on his legacy.
