Community and Support for Andre Lang Watchman


Donations can be made online here:

Andre Lang Watchman sustained significant medical injuries in a rollover car accident on November 6, 2011 that claimed the lives of two of his friends and put another in the hospital. Many friends, family and relatives seek information on Andre's status, and opportunities to help.

Who is Andre?

Born at St. Joseph's hospital in Denver, Andre Lang Watchman is the oldest son of Tamara and Cornell Watchman of Lakewood. Andre attended Tohatchee Elementary School on the Navajo Nation, Slater Elementary in Lakewood, Creighton Middle School and graduated with Lakewood High School's Class of 2011. In the Fall of 2011, Andre enrolled in Denver Metro State College ~ beginning his academic journey toward a degree in Marine Biology.

Andre's loves include all things aquatic, music (heavy thrash metal), friends, his didgeridoo and his longboard.
