He was born May 15, 2005, in Syracuse, N.Y.

Smart and inquisitive, Drew was an honor roll student and member of the tennis team at Cody Middle School. This amazing young man was uncommonly kind and caring and had a great sense of humor.

He was predeceased by his mother Adrienne. 

He is survived by his parents Andy and Bethia, sisters Grace and Hannah; also by grandfather Tom Kalenak, of Syracuse; grandmother Kathleen Kalenak, of Jackson; and great-grandmother Patricia O’Connor, also of Syracuse.

Family, friends and community gathered at Ballard Funeral Home on Monday, May 13, 2019, to remember Drew. Condolences to the family may also be left at
