Drew Stowell, age 67, of Stanton passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 6, 2016 surrounded by his family.
Born on October 13, 1948 in Anchorage, Alaska, Drew is the son of Lester & Betty (Wilcox) Stowell and they precede him in death as well as a sister, Jane Sheets.
Drew is survived by his wife, Bev; daughters, Kami Miller of Stanton, Carrie (Brett) Hallihan of Stanton; son, Brandon Stowell of Edmore; sister, Patti (Tom) Birch of Bay City; grandchildren, Kavin Miller of Stanton, Kelsie Stowell of Edmore, Jax Hallihan of Stanton and a soon to be born Granddaughter.

Drew graduated from the Wentworth Military Academy in 1967 and was drafted into the Army during the Vietnam War in 1969. After serving his country, Drew earned his tool and die journeyman’s card and after working for 30 years retired from Tower Automotive. Drew was an avid collector of many things, especially classic cars and guns. While he enjoyed spending time outdoors, the thing he enjoyed the most was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. Drew’s sense of humor and quick wit will be missed by all who knew him but never forgotten by those who loved him. He is a man who will be greatly missed by everyone.
