Drew loved to spend time with his daughter, family and friends.  He loved to make people laugh and usually had something funny to say.  He had an extremely kind soul with a gentle heart and was lovingly referred to by his mother as her, “gentle giant.”  He loved home cooked meals never refusing an invitation for dinner.  He had an infectious laugh coupled with the most beautiful smile and was known to play pranks on all of us.  He was a tremendously loving and wonderful father to Violet.  She would become mesmerized by him not taking her eyes off him.  They shared a love superheroes and cartoons.  We are so grateful that he blessed us with Violet and through her, his spirit will live forever.
