Randall Edward Drew, a beloved individual who dedicated his life to his career and community, passed away on July 23, 2023, at Haywood Regional Medical Center.

A native of Indiana, Randall was preceded in death by his parents James and Laveda Randall Drew.  Randall's professional journey was marked by diligence and expertise. For 35 years, he served as a Computer Analyst at Exelon in Chicago. His commitment to his work and determination made him an esteemed member of the company.

Education played a crucial role in shaping Randall's life and career.

Throughout the years, he generously contributed to several church committees, showcasing his dedication and commitment.
