In Memory Of
Class of 1997
Passed Aug 16, 2015
Drew was born December 7, 1978 in Houston, Texas to James Andrew McGinty and Katherine
Craddock. He later became a life-long resident of Navasota, attending Navasota schools and even taking piano lessons. Drew married Lacey Pearce on May 1, 2005 and they had two children, Ethan Jacob Pearce and Summer Nicole Pearce, which were the loves of his life. Drew became a master carpenter and after many years, decided to take a break for a while. He worked at Treehouse Apartments and received his certification in air conditioning and Maintenance for several years. He moved to Austin and became employed with Texas Star Recovery, where he worked in Physical Therapy and helping neurological patients recover. Missing his roots and passion, he moved back to Navasota and continued in the field of carpentry. Due to his great skills and exceptional talent, Drew had a tremendous impact on everyone’s life he touched. He was so very much loved and had a heart as big as Texas! HE was very much a people person and had a gift for making everyone laugh and being the life of the party. He loved to barbeque, dance, socialize and swim, just to name a few… and in general just having fun with his family and friends. He was so kind and considerate and when anyone needed help with anything, he was the “go to guy” that would always show up. He loved spending time and having fun with his kids. From jumping on the trampoline, being a soccer coach, or playing cards or video games, whatever it took to put a big smile on their faces. Drew was a “one of a kind” man, and in the end, Drew gave of himself the greatest gift of all; he gave the “give of life” to five different recipients. He was an organ donor that brought such joy and happiness and life to five different families in his last act of love and compassion. Drew was loved so very much by all of his family and friends, leaving behind a loving, heart-broken family that will miss him horribly, but will never forget the mark he made on all of our lives and how very deeply he touched each of our hearts.
