Diana,

Ron and I are so very sorry to hear of Drew’s passing. Drew was someone who loved and lived life in a way most do not. He was so proud of his boys and grandchildren, and he always spoke of you with the greatest of respect.

As you well know, Drew took great interest in the GIS team’s success. His laugh, his jokes, and the very informal 1:1 meetings will be missed by all of us that worked under his guidance.

With our deepest sympathies,

Ron and Marsha DeMarco

I'm so sorry to hear about Drew's passing. I worked with Drew for a number of years and have missed our weekly Starbucks meetings trying to remember who bought the coffee the week before. He was a warm and caring soul that talked highly of all those around him. When we meet again, the next coffee is on me my friend!

Diana,
My family and I are deeply saddened to hear of the loss of Drew, he was a great gentleman, with a great smile, very good memory, and always with very good questions and comments. He helped me, and I learned a lot from him during the time that I worked under his supervision before he retired from AT&T. Please accept our condolences and may our prayers help comfort you and your family, and may God have his soul in Heaven!

I’m saddened to hear this news. Drew and I spent many hours discussing at length on many topics while stuck in traffic on GA 400 during the “carpool years”. My life has been enriched from Drew’s presence in it. I know he so looked forward to retirement in Colorado and sounds like he continued to enrich lives there as well.

Rest well, my friend.

I have worked with Drew at AT&T in Atlanta office and it was always a pleasure to talk with him and exchange interested topics. I remember Drew as an open person, full of life and actions and always ready to protect and sacrifice for his team.
My sincere condolences to family. Rest in Peace, Drew.

Diana - Shocked and saddened to hear of Drew. Margie Lidoff is precisely correct about his place in our extended family and the wonderful role he served. Although our visits have been so limited these years since your moves, I always felt the same warmth and kinship with Drew when we did meet. He and Jay were a great part of my youth and I'm forever grateful to them for introducing me to AZA. Just when we need truly nice, intelligent gentlemen in the world, to lose Drew is doubly painful. Although it has been years, now I genuinely miss him. Love to you and the family. Dennis

I worked with Drew on many RFPs while at AT&T and always had fun doing so. Had coffee with him many times with his last boss. He had a great sense of humor. He mentioned to me he was Jewish. During the Holidays I ran into Drew at the Kidney Bean at the old Cingular building. Drew was carving a slice off the ham some supplier had provided. I asked Drew if it was OK for him to eat that due to his culture. He responded that this is the largest chicken he had ever seen!! And how many times did he tell you how to spell his name; F ON OR OFF?!
