WATERFORD Andrew “Drew” Preston Miller, 24, of 3rd Ave. passed away Wednesday December 23, 2020. Born in Albany he was the son of Nancy A. Preston Roberts of Waterford and F. Michael Miller of Mechanicville and step son of Gary “Rabb” Roberts. He was a 2014 graduate of Waterford Halfmoon High School and was a member of the tennis team there for 4 years.

Drew was employed as a welder at Philips Medical Corp for the past year. Prior to that he worked at Fred’s Tents and Canopies Inc. in Waterford and for Fed Ex in East Greenbush.

Drew enjoyed snowboarding, paint ball, bowling and swimming but he especially loved children and animals and was fond of his Bearded Dragon Cindy Diggs and his other pet lizard. He had a beautiful heart full of love and his smile and vibe would light up a room when he walked in and would also bring comic relief to any situation.

Survivors in addition to his parents and step father include his companion Danyell Howansky of Watervliet and his half-brother Michael Joseph Miller of Syracuse. Several aunts, uncles and cousins also survive.

A Memorial service will be Tuesday at 6 pm at Philip J. Brendese Funeral Home, 133 Broad St. (Rte.32), Waterford.

Relatives and friends may visit at the funeral home on Tuesday prior to the service from 4-6 pm.

As per pandemic regulations masks are required, social distancing practiced and occupancy limitations observed.

Those who wish may make memorial contributions to the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, 3 Oakland Ave., Menands, NY 12204.

Drew was a very chill and down to Earth guy. He tried to avoid conflict and always be there, no matter what his mental state was. he offered a friend to anyone who needed it, even if he didn't know them. He went on road trips and adventures with us, including cliff jumping on the Fourth of July. He also gave us a place to hang out, even if it was just to watch him play overwatch. He had a fond love for lizards and I was lucky enough to be able to take them in and make sure they have a happy home, knowing that's probably the one thing he wanted most. He will be greatly missed and will live on forever in everyone's hearts and memories.
