Drew grew up in Osceola, WI, graduating from Osceola High School in 2005. From an early age, Drew enjoyed all things outdoors to include hunting and riding anything with a motor. Drew had a never-ending love for tinkering with machines, trucks, and varying projects, taking pride in his knowledge of how to make the old, new again. Drew spent summers in high school and beyond working with friends on their racecars out at Cedar Lake Speedway, learning all he could; enjoying his time being in the dirt with the car haulers. Although his love for motors was certainly a draw for his free time, many of us know it was also a love for friends and sharing a passion with them. All of his knowledge and love for fixing things would have never been enough for him in his short life and sharing his tinkered finds with friends and family will forever be remembered. Drew loved to help anyone he could, doing anything to assist his family or friends. Drew held a special place in his heart for his nieces, nephews, and children in his life, bringing out the baby talk and bounds of love and compassion for them. Drew took advantage of enjoying his sister's baked treats and always offered to finish the leftovers from her cooking. Drew's parents devoted their love and patience for their son in every way, never sparing a way to show their care.
Drew will be missed in a way words cannot express, and his family and friends will find comfort in sharing stories of his life to keep his memory forever in their hearts and lives.
