Drew had an incredibly adventurous spirit and was charismatic. He would warm your soul with his radiant smile. He was open-hearted and accepting of all. Never one to withhold but always giving; he was generous to a fault. Drew proved repeatedly that he was a self-starter and never one to sit idle. He was a leader to his friends and always encouraging others to share in his lust for life. With a passion for adventure, skydiving, snowboarding, kayaking, hiking, scuba diving, surfing, and dancing were just some of Drew's favorite pursuits. He also had a great appreciation of music and enjoyed reading. Drew quickly advanced up the ranks during his three years of working as an RV Technician. He was driven, quick to master any given task, and repeatedly demonstrated the ability to rapidly advance in his career. The value of discipline was not lost on Drew. He was committed, dedicated and determined to strive for personal improvement. He was adroit at the greatest skill of all, the skill of living. Drew is survived by his parents, Constance Crone Faulkner and Duane Launius; his step-father, Craig Faulkner; his two sisters, Amy Bovill and Christina Beutler; Brother-in-law, Nathan Beutler; two nieces, Kendall and Catlyn and three nephews, Jeremy, Isaiah and Treyson; six grandparents, Claus Crone, Karen and John Walker, Shirley Lawson, Ted and DeAnne Faulkner; 15 aunts and uncles, Reiner Crone, Christa Crone and Dane Launius, Cindy Miles, Greta Ward, Carol and Jon Lechtenberg, Bonna and Charlie Cooley, Rob and Kari Walker, Tom and Lorrie Walker, Ken Walker, and John Walker; and 24 cousins.
