Andrew Lionel Scott was born on May 19th, 1987 in Virginia Beach, Virginia to Leon and Veryl Scott. Drew, as he was affectionately called, was the baby boy of the family and was 30 years old when God called him home on Saturday, August 5th, 2017. Drew’s family loved and cherished him from the day he was born until the minute he departed this life. When Drew was diagnosed with Autism as a child, rather than being ruled by the fear of the unknown, Andrew’s family acted and became an all-encompassing support system. Drew’s mother, Veryl, scaled back her prestigious career as an attorney and became a full-time caregiver to Drew. The only time he wasn’t with her was when she was in court fighting for the rights of other children and families. His mother’s dedication inspired the rest of the family and they ensured that Drew never knew anything but love, compassion, and kindness. The Scott family made sure Drew had a happy life full of normal activities – he loved making coffee for his dad every morning, doing laundry, and even gardening and mowing the lawn. He and his parents took long walks and ran errands for which Drew memorized the grocery lists better than them. Andrew Scott had the sweetest personality you ever experienced. He loved to make jokes and laugh. He loved spending time with his family and pet dog, Star. He loved to swim and could be found at the pool on every trip. He loved music. He loved good food; in fact, he probably holds a world record for his ability to chug juice. He loved car rides and Drew traveled all around the country from California to Florida and everywhere in between with his family. He also made international trips to Mexico and The Bahamas. People noticed him everywhere he went because he was so tall, dark, and handsome. He was kind and was always liked no matter where he went. He loved roller coasters and took an annual birthday trip to Busch Gardens. Andrew Scott lived a full life and and never let Autism dim his light. Drew loved to give hugs and kisses to family, and his affection will be sorely missed and forever remembered. Drew is survived by his loving mother and father, Veryl Wells Scott and Leon Scott Sr.; four siblings, Frederick “Ricky” Scott (Amanda), Woodrow “Woody” Scott (Deitra), Helen “Peachy” Scott, and Leon Scott Jr.; eight nieces and nephews, a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and loved ones.

Nikki G. Davis My deepest most sincere condolences, to everyone touched by Drews passing ❤
