I was shocked and saddened to hear of Alan's passing. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. We shared many college football stories during our days together at First Horizon, and Alan was my guest a few times at my golf club in Memphis. My condolences to the entire Drewer family.

We'll miss 'Big Al'!
We grew up playing Arlington Optimist baseball, then football and basketball at Williamsburg Jr. High and Yorktown High School. When he was at William and Mary playing football, could count on seeing him courtside at the basketball games.

Knew that family was very important to him and he spent a lot of time with them.

May God bless and keep you!!

I sit tonight and toast Alan Drewer and remember his great presence on football field, playing hoops at Milt's house, for Yorktown H.S. team and after high school, working with him and with his dad Milt who hired me at First American, and then seeing him in my neighborhood at Franklin Farm. I will miss seeing him and talking old stories. God Bless Lora and the family.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I was Mr. Drewer's dental hygienist for the past five years. He was one of my favorite patients. It was a pleasure to see him on my schedule every six months. Mr. Drewer will truly be missed at my office.

Words cannot express how saddened I was to hear of Alan's passing. I had the pleasure of working with him and will miss his big voice, his bright smile and stories of his wife and boys. He had a great sense of humor and big personality that touched so many of us. Until we meet again my friend...

Lora, Matthew, Patrick and Joseph,
Our family has probably played every sport together since they were little people. We don't see one another often but the love and connection remains. So grateful to have known him and feel assured the boys will watch over Lora. God bless

We have so many fond memories of Alan from the heyday of the Chantilly Sharks, Oakton Cougar football, and many other teams where we cheered for our sons from the sidelines with the Drewer family over many fun-filled years.
We are very saddened to learn of Alan's passing and send heartfelt condolences to Lora and the boys.

Words cannot express how the loss of Alan affected myself and our First Horizon Family. He was very well thought of and had a wonderful sense of humor when you knew he was joking.
RIP Alan. Lora, Matt, Pat and Joe my deepest sympathies.

I just met Alan on July 24th while we played golf at International CC. We road together for 4 hours. We really got to know one another and talked about family, golf, retirement, his beach house in Rehoboth, his lot in Bluffton and so on. I was shocked and saddened to hear this news. I feel like i know the entire family and no one knows me. All i can mention is that he loved his children, and his wife very much. Please know that all of you, his extended family and friends have lost a great man, friend, father and just a nice person. I am happy that i got to know him a little and sad that i did not meet him sooner in my life. Prayers for your family as you grieve your loss.

Alan was such a great guy and seemed to enjoy life to the fullest. He obviously was a smart guy, but could be goofy at the same time. His smile and large personality will be missed.
