Drew enjoyed listening to blues and country
music. You might have been lucky to catch him

time outdoors. Drew loved his many pets and
was fond of hunting dogs.

was a dedicated and hard working employee -
always there to lend a helping hand to
neighbours and friends. He found creative ways
to get the job done with speed and efficiency.
