As you are probably aware, Jack Drews died Saturday, Aug. 16 while
racing his lovely Triumph TR-4 at Grattan, MI. We believe that he
blacked out behind the wheel, causing him to drive off the end of the
front straight without braking or turning. It appears that he
suffered a basal scull fracture in the impact with the
embankment. He was doing what he loved, with the people he
loved. We will all miss him, but he is in a better place now.
We have been overwhelmed by the support both at the track and upon
returning home, and are grateful for everyone's thoughts and prayers.
We will be having visitation on Wednesday, Aug. 20 from 4:00 pm to
7:00 pm at Stackhouse Moore Funeral Home, 225 E. Park Street,
Geneseo, IL 61254. The funeral will be on Thursday, Aug. 21 at 10:30
am and will be followed by a luncheon at Concordia Lutheran Church,
316 S. Oakwood Ave, Geneseo, IL 61254.
