Waska, Drew

It is with true sadness that we announce the passing of Drew Thomas Waska, on Wednesday, January 27th with his family by his side. Born June 8th, 1960 in Murrayville, he grew up in Fort Langley and spent his childhood and adult life there. As a young man of 14 he purchased his first fishing vessel following in his father’s footsteps as a commercial fisherman. His love of Fort Langley and his area was reflected in his community involvement with the Fort Langley Lions. His enthusiasm for aquaculture carried over in his role as a previous president and current volunteer at the Nicomekl Enhancement Society. When Drew was not volunteering, his time was devoted to his grandchildren – they were his ultimate joy. Drew is survived by his son Kelin Waska (Alyssa), grandson Riley and granddaughter Alexis; sisters Marnie Loutet (Stuart) & Sherry Sissons (John). He is predeceased by his father Harry & mother Marjorie. Drew’s service will be held at Henderson’s Funeral Home, 20786 Fraser Hwy, Langley on February 9th. Viewing at 1:30 p.m. and service at 3:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Nicomekl Enhancement Society.
