Alfred P. “Bud” Drews, age 83, of St. Charles passed away on June 8 at Season’s Hospice Center, after 5 years of many illnesses and many courageous fights and obstacles to overcome.

Memorial services will be held at Brust Funeral Home, 135 S. Main St., Lombard, on Saturday, June 18 from 12:00-3:00.

Bud is survived by his devoted wife of 63 years; Marjorie; his children John (Sue) of South Elgin, Steve (Sue) of Glendale Heights, Diane (Ken) of Campton Hills, 11 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.

Bud grew up in Forest Park and was drafted into the Korean War. While stationed in Texas, Marjorie joined him in Texas and they became married.  After 36 years in Forest Park, Bud moved his family to Lombard.  Bud was an avid hunter and fisherman and the main captain of his boat the “Chug a Lug”.  Bud was often the “life of the party” with many stories that he would tell with lots of laughter.  His laugh will always be missed.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the American Cancer Society.

    Diane and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Your Dad was always such a sweet and funny man. I can remember your Dad sleeping on the couch downstairs, and we’d wake him up begging for pizza money and he’d say yes. Your parents always made me so welcome in their home as we were growing up. He will live on in you, and all the wonderful memories you shared.

  3. My prayers and sympathy go out to the Drews Family. God bless your father.

    I am so sorry for all of your loss Diane. You are such a positive person & seem to be taking this so well. To be married for more than 10 years, let alone 63, is a miracle these days. Kudos to them! Prayers that you will all get through this with fantastic stories, love & laughter in your huge hearts. XOXOXOX
