To know Drew was to love him. Drew was a joy to be around. He had that crooked smile that could light up any room. He loved his people hard and was always willing to take a moment for others. Drew was a three-sport athlete who competed with his heart in football, basketball, and pole vault. He not only excelled on the field/court/track but also in the classroom where he was an Honor Roll student and ranked in the top ten in his class. He enjoyed spending time with family, friends, and his dog Sally.
His quiet charismatic personality impacted those around him, children and adults, whether he know it or not. He left a legacy behind and will forever be loved and remembered.
