Obituary for Michael Alan Drew

Michael Alan Drew was born August 10, 1979 in McMinnville. He was the first of seven children for Kevin Michael Drew and Lana (White) Drew and the first grandchild for Alan and Nancy White, all of Yamhill County.

Michael attended Chemeketa Community College and then Western Baptist College. He later joined his father in his cabinet business becoming a gifted and talented designer representing the company with his brother in Bend, Oregon. Many of his designs were featured in the Bend Tour Homes. Though Michael moved back to the area to be closer to family his dream was always to be back in Bend where he enjoyed the outdoors and rafting on the Deschutes.

In 2007 Michael met his love, Andrea Martin, at the county fair. He is survived by Andrea, their daughters Makayla and Isabel and his older daughter, Emmalea Drew.

As the eldest of seven children Michael was always the initiator of fun, whether as a big brother, son, uncle or dad. Family was always priority as he talked about future plans. His smile and laughter will be greatly missed by his surviving children, parents, grandparents, siblings Brenden (Laura), Austin, Andrea (Chris Moreland), Cody, Zachary (Madeline) and Jessica, as well as the nieces and nephews.

Michael loved music, movies, and discussions about life, God and the state of our world. He was the first person to suggest helping someone and/or coming to another’s defense while he’d immediately start formulating a plan of action. With his sense of adventure and infectious laughter children would flock to him at gatherings as he was always ready for fun.

Michael’s work on earth was done and he was called home to heaven on May 21, 2018.
His family and friends will find it hard to not have his always ready advice and helping hand but will proudly carry on his legacy of love and joy.

Family interment was private with a Celebration of Life service for all family and friends to be held at 10:30 am on June 9th at Adventure Christian Church in McMinnville. The family welcomes you all as we celebrate his life and share his love.
