Scott Drew passes away
Submitted photo

On May 20, 1980 an angel was brought onto this Earth in Phoenix — his name was Scott Michael Drew. On Aug. 30, 2012 our Lord returned him to Heaven peacefully after a long courageous fight with Cystic Fibrosis.

During his short 32 years here with us, he brought untold joy, laughs and a quick smile to anyone he met. Scott graduated in 1998 from Mountain Pointe High School in Ahwatukee where he played on the tennis team. He followed in the family footsteps and attended Arizona State University and was an avid Sun Devil fan. He enjoyed tennis, gaming, programming, family get-togethers, the beach, Comic-Con, Little League World Series, soccer and muscle cars.

Scott’s passing leaves a huge hole in the hearts of all who knew him. He leaves behind his mother Debbie (Ken) Kieselbach; father John (Kate) Drew; grandmother Florence Hitt; brothers Ryan, David and Michael Drew; sisters Kameran Drew, Chris Dotts and Tracey Perez; uncles Don (Hollie) Drew and Michael (Christa) Hitt. He is preceded in his passing by his grandfather, Gordon Hitt, and his grandfather and grandmother, Dan and Donna Drew, and his “man’s best friend,” Max.

A private celebration of life will take place for family and friends. A special thanks to the staff at the Heart & Lung Institute, Cardio-thoracic Unit of St. Joseph’s Hospital and Arizona Public Service (Palo Verde) for their tremendous support.
