I have known Drew for many years through both our jobs with the AF and DOD. We had a lot of laughs together and got each other through some very tough times. I will certainly miss our chats.
My heart is broken, fly high my friend, your smile and kindness Shaw live in many hearts forever. I find comfort in the fact you had your soul mate by you in the . Your smile will remain in my heart for ever. Rest easy Drew.
My heartfelt condolences to the family. This still doesn’t seem real. There will never be another like Andrew Summers! He was my first supervisor when I transferred to the 125th FW. I actually met him while I was stationed at Keesler AFB. He was a great supervisor, and a good friend. He will always be remembered for his kindness, easy going demeanor, and amazing sense of humor. Drew was such a genuine person who met no stranger. Sending love to the family during this most difficult time. ❤️
Like many, I knew Drew from the Fighter Wing, he was a good man and a friend I will truly miss. Condolences to the family and all who will feel the loss of his passing.
Master Sergeant Andrew Summers was not only a devoted family man but also a dedicated member of a larger extended family where he oversaw payroll operations for all members of the FLANG. He led his dedicated staff providing the best possibly pay service, from basic training to their retirement, with respect and empathy. As the always the sharp Airman that he was, he led with compassion and by example as he earned his bachelor’s degree, while still working full time, in preparation for his next life episode following military retirement. I will never the forget the pride of accomplishment I witnessed at his graduation from Jacksonville University. In as much as the military prepared Drew for traditional combat operations, it was no match for the insidious virus that took him from us at a too young an age. Your extended family of brothers and sisters in arms thank you and salute you as you ride into the sunset in your dress blues and combat boots.

We we’re in disbelief to read the news is our friend Drew. We’ve known Drew for at least 10 years. We’ve rode together, and socialized. You will be dearly missed. Prayers for your wife, and family. May they find comfort in knowing you’re at peace now.

I was saddened to hear of Drew’s passing. As a unit commander I often worked to drew and found him to be unfailingly professional and genuinely concerned not with mission success and the welfare of others. The FLANG was blessed to have had him in our ranks and I’m proud to say I served with him. My prayers for God’s mercy, grace, and peace be upon his family. You’ll be sorely missed Drew.
I’m so sorry for your loss. Please accept my sympathy. Drew touched the lives of many in one way or the other. He would always greet with a smile and ready to assist anyone that needed it. He will be missed. May GOD grant you the courage and strength, through this difficult time. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
So many wonderful memories of my dear friend. We became friends over the phone through work. I will never forget the people watching at Shades, Halloween Horror Nights, Blue Man Group and many other great memories. You will be missed my friend.
Drew you served your country which is a high act of patriotism and I am glad you will be honored as such. You were a welcoming presence in our unit. You encouraged an environment of positivity and laughter that was always evident every time we meet up after you retired. I wanted to let you know how very sorry we are. Please sympathy with your entire family. God Bless You
I've known Andrew for about 17 years when I left active duty and joined the Florida Air National Guard. He and I connected because we both always kept a smile on our faces. Whenever I would have to visit the finance office, I know he'd greet me with that infectious smile. You will truly be missed!
I've known Drew for about 23 years. He worked in the 125th Finance office. We met when the unit came back from a deployment. I walked into Finance with a stack of 100+ travel vouchers, after just getting off the plane. Guess I looked a bit frazzled, because he immediately got up, took them from me & helped to finish the process. That was the start of a long friendship. We've kept in touch over years via social media & texts. He was a great guy & a good friend. We have definitely lost one of the best. He will be very missed.
I cant ever remember not knowing my sweet cousin Andy. He was funny, had a generous spirit and was loyal. He loved his country and his family and he will be missed. I am so sorry for your loss. I am praying for all of you.

May the comforting and peaceful arms of GOD keep you Drew! I met you when I had the task of starting the 159th Weather Flight in 1992. Knowing the importance of Military Pay and Travel issues, you were a ROCK of support for me and our flight members! Always gracious! Always willing to help in any way! We stayed in touch since our retirements over social media. I cannot Thank You enough I’m still completely heartbroken over this. REST IN PARADISE brother! GOD BLESS
I've known Drew since I joined the Florida Air National Guard in 1997. He worked in the Finance office at the 125th Fighter Wing, and as you can imagine his position was very important, to get pay issues corrected and travel pay reimbursed! He was always kind, helpful and patient. After retirement, we kept in touch thru social media. My military brothers and sisters mean so much to me, and his loss is heartbreaking. Our military community is badly shaken by his loss.
I met Drew over 23 years ago when he transferred into the Finance office at the 125th FW. We have been friends every since and I could always count on him to go on a motorcycle trip at any time. He was fun to be with and always met friends where ever he ways. He was a true friend and a true patriot who served his country proudly. He will be forever missed.
I was blessed to know Andy and so happy that he found true love with Christy. I shared my love for cats and would send me cute videos of them. Gone to soon.
One of my favorite things about Andy is that you always knew how much he loved you. You never had to guess, you just felt it in his kind words and the time he would take to talk to you and genuinely be interested in your life. I will forever miss you until we meet again. Give your Uncle Donny a hug from his Granddaughter 🤍
You will always hold the most special place in my heart and be one of the biggest influences to me going in the Air Force ❤️ Being deployed and not being able to make it to celebrate you is so hard but I will see you again and I’ll make you and grandad proud ❤️
