Death of former keyboardist and vocalist

I am sad to announce the passing of our uncle, Drew Sexton, former keyboardist and vocalist for Randy Travis. Drew passed away at 5:30 a.m. 2/11/09. He performed with Randy on hits like forever and ever amen, he walked on water, etc.. He is much loved and will be sadly missed. He was a better man than most people get to know.
We love you Drew

I was so sorry to learn about Drews passing. I only knew Drew for about 2 years while traveling with him as the engineer for Tom T. As a person you could not find a more calm personable friendly caring person. I can not think of one harsh thing Drew ever did. I only wish I would have kept in touch with him more than I did. If not for Ray Edwards I would not have known. He will be missed greatly and I wish to send my condolences to his family. If anybody can send me information about what happen it would be greatly appreciated. For those that new him during this time my road name was Spunk. May he be at rest playing his piano for the best there ever was. Jay

I am sorry to hear that. I know how hard it is to lose a family member. I lost my Grandpa in January four years ago. I hope you all find peace and remember all of the good times you had together.
