Nicholas Drew Anthony Keywan

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Nicholas Drew Anthony Keywan, who departed from this world on September 22, 2023 at the age of 44. 
Born on January 15, 1979, Drew was a loving husband to Alejandra Borjas Gonzalez, beloved son of Donna and Stepfather Bill, cherished brother to Tom and Jason. Drew leaves behind family members: Aunt Louise and Uncle Ross, his cousins: Aaron, Tyler, Ryley, Clare, and Sister in law Elaine.
Drew had a kind and compassionate spirit, full of generosity, which he offered to anyone who needed it, whenever he could.
Drew loved spending time with his family.  He was always one of the first to arrive and last to leave at family gatherings, enjoying good chats and exchanging jokes.
Drew enjoyed many hobbies and interests: movies were a passion, he loved great television shows and was always open to a good conversation with anyone who had the time.  He also loved Star Wars collectables and had an extensive collection of shot glasses. His love of food and cooking led him to a lifetime career in the restaurant industry, where he took great pride in his work.
Drew had a special kindness for his pets, he loved all animals, most recently his cat Casper.
But the biggest love of all for Drew, was his wife Alejandra, she was his light.
As we say our goodbyes let us remember Drew not with sorrow, but with gratitude for the time we were blessed to spend with him.
Though he’s gone from our sight, he will never be gone from our hearts.
With all of our love and remembrance, the family of Nicholas Drew Anthony Keywan.

    Ale, can’t even imagine what is like to go thru this, you are very brave and strong. Death is very selfish! The ones that are left are the ones who suffer. But in another hand, I’m glad u got to experience this unforgettable love story, that will accompany you Forever.
    As I told you, he doesn’t just lives in your heart, he lives in your whole being, your hands that touched him, in your arms that held him, your lips that kissed him, and so on.

    Drew, I met you when you were 7. For many years the best memories of my life were spent with your friends Luke and Matt, your Brother Tom and you. I still have your actors head shot, I loved your Rap and enjoyed watching you perform at my Moms restaurant. You had many talents and cooking was definitely one of them. I’m glad I knew you. Until we meet again in heaven. Rest in peace dear one. My prayers and condolences to all your family and especially your Mom. Love always, Lisa
