My sympathy goes out to all of Drew's family and friends. Being a classmate with Drew in high school and college, I wanted to send my thoughts and prayers to all of you. I hadn't seen Drew in a very very long time, but I always remember him as a really nice person. For me it is hard to lose a classmate, but I know that with faith and hope we will meet again. May GOD grant you courage and strength to overcome the sadness and loneliness by remembering all the joy that Drew brought to you, the community, and to the world. With heartfelt sympathy, Marilyn John Sheaffer

Drew and I have been close friends since we were about 14. I can truly say there was no better person to spend time in the outdoors with or a finer person to be around than Drew. He enriched my life and I am a better person for knowing him. He was like a brother to me and I will sorely miss him. Love and Peace, Bill

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Jones and his close friend Jack on a fishing trip several years ago. Drew taught me things I will never forget about catching smallmouth bass over the few days we spent together. We stayed in touch over the years but hadn't talked recently and I'm sad about that. He was a friend and a mentor I will never forget. I'm lucky to have met and known him. My deepest condolences to his wife, children, grand children and family. He was a wonderful person who will be missed by many.
