Drew was one of the best troubleshooting electricians I ever worked with, and though work took priority (usually), we had a lot of fun at the PG. He was so proud of his family and talked about Donna and the children often. You all have deepest sympathy and prayers from the Kerrigan family.

So sorry Donna and family about Drew. What a fun and knowledgeable man. Working with Drew at the paper was great and we all bonded together. He loved his work and always was calm working with the production equipment. First thing Drew would do when he came to work: make a fresh pot of coffee,” Drew’s Brew” Praying for all. Bud Patton
