More recently, he worked for McBurr Enterprises of Elizabethtown while attending Elizabethtown Community College. He only just moved to Louisville to finish his degree at U of L.

I was so very heartbroken to hear of Drew’s passing. It was my delight to have met him several times and spend a few Thanksgiving dinners with his charming, witty and bright presence. Truly a special person who will be deeply missed by his loving and extraordinary family. May God heal your prayers are with you.

Al and Lois , although I haven't seen you in years, I still remember how you always talked about Drew. I remember him as a little boy. I am so very sorry for your loss. I know how it feels. Cathy passed about 2 1/2 yrs. ago. Still wintering in Bradenton. God be with you.
