A bicentennial graduate of Tuscaloosa High School, Drew was proud| of being a Black Bear. He loved every day spent skiing on Lake Tuscaloosa. After graduating from The University of Alabama in 1981, he began his career at BF Goodrich where he ended up as warehouse manager, years later. After a shorter career at Tuscaloosa Warehouse and Coca Cola, he joined his wife's family business, Water Works Pool & Spa, for the last 20 years. While working in the pool business, he discovered a need for a better way to repair underwater lights and developed a part that he holds a U.S. patent on. His company, The Light Doctor, has grown to a product line of 16 parts. Drew and Lynn enjoyed traveling with their daughters and pool business friends. Their travels have included 18 cruises, trips to Europe, Canada, Hawaii, Peru and they were set to explore Croatia and Slovenia in October. Drew could be found sitting on "his pew" every Sunday he was in town. He loved his Lord and his family and friends.

Pallbearers will be Bill Walker, Jr., David Nelson, Jeff Malone, Tony Johnson, John Ed Belvin, Matthew White, Ian Barrett, Shepard Chalkley and Haynes Chalkley.

Drew & Lynn have been my Backyard Neighbors for the past 27 years. Thanks Lynn for your personal in-home notification. It brought tears to my eyes. I was just laughing at Drew mowing the lawn in the rain two weeks ago, then ending up mowing my own lawn in the rain the next week. You will be greatly missed my friend. May God Bless and Keep you Forevermore.
