Sidney Robert "Bob" Drew

Peggy (Alpers) Drew lost her husband. A man she's been married to for 49 years. A man who she loved and cared for, in sickness and in health. Brooke (Drew) Bradshaw and Heather (Drew) Ochs lost a father. A man who taught them how to use tools and gave them a whacky sense of humor. Grandchildren, Jeremy Nelis, Elijah Ochs, Sydney Ochs and Nicklas Bradshaw lost their grandfather. A "Bumpa" that shared his love of cats, planes, and trains. Christopher Ochs and Tyler Bradshaw lost their father-in-law. A man who drove them bonkers at times, but who appreciated them for taking care of his daughters. Countless relatives lost an uncle, cousin, and brother. A man who always entertained and was the life of the party. Numerous people who knew him lost a friend. A man who would drop anything to help out at a moment's notice. An incredible man, Sidney Robert Drew, left a void in the hearts of many but will be forever watching over us.

Born October 21, 1943 to Sidney Dale Drew and Ethelyn Jane (Owen) Drew in Battle Creek, Michigan, Bob, as he was known all his life to family and friends, passed on from this life December 18, 2016. Bob was a US Navy Veteran, then employed by the Illinois Central Gulf Railroad for 31 years.

We know you are in a better place. We will miss you. We will grieve. We will lean on each other and support each other as we process losing you. Thank you for bringing laughter, love, and everything in between to all of our lives. A Celebration of Life will be held on July 15, 2017 with the location to be announced at a later date. Donations in his memory can be made to Hospice of Kankakee Valley ( or mailed to Hospice of Kankakee Valley at: 482 Main St NW, Bourbonnais, IL 60914 noted "In Memory of Sidney Robert Drew".
