Andrew W. ‘Drew’ Schnell
Andrew W. “Drew’ Schnell of Waukesha passed away on August 29, 2017 at Saint David’s Hospital in Austin, Texas.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Andy and Jane Schnell, and by a sister, Diane Cummings.
He is survived by his children, Colleen “Paul” Dancy of Dayton, Ohio, Andrew “Annette” Schnell of San Jose, Calif., and Tara Schnell of Austin, Texas; his grandchildren, Sarah Drew Dancy, Luca, Cosette, and Remi Schnell; and his sister, Sandra Schnell of Waukesha. He is further survived by his brother-in-law, Steve Cummings; his niece, Carolyn “Eric” Standarski; his nephew, Jeffrey “Grace” Cummings, all of Waukesha; and other relatives and many friends.
Drew was born in Waukesha on May 18, 1943. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh in 1966. He managed Sunset Bowl in Waukesha with his father for many years. He was an avid golfer and an accomplished pool player. For the past 15 years, he loved working at Kelly’s Bleachers as their “shuttle driver.” Drew was a kind and thoughtful person who loved his children and grandchildren and will be deeply missed by all who knew him. During his last eight months, he lived with his youngest daughter, Tara, in Austin, Texas. There he continued to do his favorite things: watching movies, fantasy football, watching NFL and NBA and of course watching the Brewers!
Drew will always be remembered for his beautiful heart, compassion, selflessness, sports knowledge and his strength!
A private funeral service will be held by the family in November.
