Drew was born on February 15, 1966 in Russell County, Alabama to Vera “Miles” Lamb. He attended school in the Phenix City, Alabama area. He was fondly known by his family down south as “Boot.” He moved to Missouri in the late 1980’s for traveling labor work. Drew was a long time employee of Travel Clean Car Wash in Overland Park, Kansas. He loved making sure that cars shined. Drew enjoyed working on electronics and especially enjoyed trying his hand at rebuilding computers. Drew fathered two children, Dom Bennett who is 30 and Olivia Roberts who is 7. He adored his children and was so proud to be their Dad. They both were no doubt the apple of his eye. Drew was a wonderful and kind father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend.

He is survived by his son, Dom (Kaycie) Bennett of Lee’s Summit, Mo, his daughter, Olivia Roberts of Independence, Mo, his grandchildren, Noah and Abigail Bennett of Lee’s Summit, Mo, his siblings, Betty Cochran, William Miles, Trishia Miles, Pearl Jenkins, and Shanna Lamb all of Phenix City, Al, one Aunt, Emma Allen of Phenix City, Al, the mothers of his children, Tina Baker of Springfield, Mo and Michelle Roberts of Independence, Mo whom he remained great friends with, special friend/boss Spencer Gregg of Travel Clean Car Washes, and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, and friends.
