Drew Gerry Harper, 72, of Laguna Niguel, California, went home to be with Jesus on July 31, 2017. Born in Pasadena to Allen and Jane Harper, Drew was a loving and generous husband and father. He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Kay, and their three children, Josh, Forrest and Bonnie; and their two grandchildren, Emery and Vivian. He is also survived by his two sisters, Ann Cressman and Katherine Judd.
Drew was a passionate man with limitless energy. He enjoyed volunteering and was deeply ingrained in the special needs and Christian communities. Drew lived in the Laguna Beach/Laguna Niguel area for decades and was well known and loved by many for his altruistic nature. He served as an officer in the Air Force. In retirement, Drew and Kay bought a cabin in Big Bear and spent half of their time in Big Bear with their cocker spaniel, Rosie. Drew absolutely loved Big Bear and especially the community at Teddy Bear Restaurant. Big Bear was truly a part of him.
A Celebration of Life for Drew will be held on Saturday, September 16, 2017, at 11a.m. at Calvary Chapel Mission Viejo, 24821 Chrisanta Drive, Mission Viejo. In lieu of flowers, donations are welcome to Glennwood Foundation to benefit adults with disabilities.
