I already miss seeing Andrea (Dr. Drano) around town. He worked for my dad at Perry Plumbing for a long, long time, and he was always special to my whole family. He was an excellent employee, a good buddy, and a blessing to all those who knew him. RIP, Andrew! Heaven has gained another precious soul .... you will be missed!!

There is so much that i could say about Andrew! Andrew was a true friend and had a kind loving heart, If there was anything that he could do for you and he would do it without hesitation. whenever I had a problem with my plumbing he would come right away because he knew I would be in distress and he would always say, Shirley don't stress Mr. Drano will take care of the problem. He will truly be missed by all that knew and loved him. Rest In Peace my friend. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family!!!

It was only a few days ago that you came to my rescue and fixed my leaky furnace. I remember you smile and laughter while you listen to old school R&B music in your truck. Mr. Drano, I know you will continue doing what you seem to love - plumbing and helping others but in Heaven.
