He lived with his family on Dewey Avenue in Hagerstown for 12 years and then 500 Northern Avenue at the Brandenburg Farm. After that time, he went to live at the J. I. Kemp Horn Training Center for Retarded Children in Smithsburg. Later he lived again with his family and then resided at Potomac Center where he lived for several years.

From Potomac Center he moved to Cherry Tree Drive for several years where he died peacefully with his caretaker Rosemary Matos by his side, whom he loved.

Drew’s favorite hobbies were coloring books, playing harmonica, counting aloud, spelling and hanging out with his caretakers, reading bible stories, and taking rides with his family.

Drew was in life and death a blessing to his family and everyone he knew.
