About Drew Lewis

Few people touch as many lives as Drew did in his all too short 45 years. Throughout his life Drew was drawn to people and people were drawn to him. There was no relationship more important than the one he had with his two children and his family. Drew was also an active and devoted member of his community. He was well suited to his chosen field in real estate sales.  His life’s work was exemplified in his love for his family and his community.

About the Fairbanks

dlf_logo_wood

The Fairbanks schoolhouse was built in 1906, and served the Grant Beach neighborhood many years thereafter. Over a century later, however, it had fallen into a state of severe disrepair. Amy Blansit and Drew Lewis acquired the Fairbanks in 2013 with the intent to restore it as a community pillar. The 25,000 square foot space serves as an auditorium, a teaching kitchen, a technology lab, a visual and performing arts space, and more.​
