Drew Chase Bonner

August 9, 1995November 10, 2018

Drew Chase Bonner, 23, of Fairfax, Virginia died peacefully in his sleep on November 10, 2018.

He was born to Neil and Jan Bonner, August 9, 1995, in Fairfax, Virginia. Drew graduated from Fairfax High School in 2013 and received a BS in Computer Science from the University of Virginia in 2017. He was employed as a software developer for Group W, Vienna, Virginia.

Drew served as a local Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Goodwill Ambassador, raising awareness of neuromuscular disorders and fundraising for the annual telethon and the Fairfax County Local 2068, Fill the Boot.

Drew’s passions included Boy Scouts and baseball. He earned his Eagle Scout rank at age 13 and was awarded the Order of the Arrow – The Vigil Honor in 2012. The Vigil Honor is the highest honor that the Order of the Arrow can bestow upon its members for service to lodge, council, and Scouting.

Although Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy robbed him of his ability to play baseball, Drew was a valued member of the Fairfax High School baseball team as a student manager.

Drew was awarded a four-year full tuition leadership scholarship to the University of Virginia, where he also served as student manager capturing video analytics for the baseball team. He was on the field in Omaha, Nebraska helping his teammates celebrate winning the 2015 NCAA National Championship.

Drew is survived by his parents and his brother Neil, of Fairfax. He is also survived by his grandmother Marie Schubert, of Elyria, Ohio; many aunts, uncles, and numerous cousins.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made out to Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy.

A gathering of family and friends will be held on Saturday, December 1st at Demaine Funeral Home, 5308 Backlick Road, Springfield, VA 22151 from 11:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. when a Celebration of Drew’s Life will begin.
