CALIFORNIA — Andrew “Drew” Langevin, 66, resident of Walnut Creek, Calif., died on Sunday, Aug. 16, 2015, after complications of end stage renal disease. Drew was born Jan. 1, 1949, in Yakima, Wash., and graduated from Marquette High School. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Washington.
Drew was passionate with his work as a human resources consultant. He retired due to health reasons, but always with the outlook that he would get back to consulting once he was better. Drew loved his family (always put them first), the beach (his home away from home) and was proud of his two Eagle Scout sons and loved everything the Boy Scouts program represented. And, he always had a special twinkle in his eye for granddaughter Zoe, who called him Poppie.
He vacationed with family, was a part time resident of Long Beach for more than 60 years, and considered the Peninsula his home away from home.
Drew is survived by his loving family: wife, Roxane; son, Scott; daughter-in-law, Jessica; granddaughter, Zoe; and his mother, Patricia. He is also survived by his brothers and sisters: Dianne, Suzanne, Judy, Patrick and Brian and many brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews; as well as his extended family Marcus, Alyvia and Malory. He is preceded in death by a son, Sean (killed in Afghanistan), a brother, Dave and by his father, William.
A funeral service was held Sept. 3, at St. John Vianney Church in Walnut Creek. Burial at Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Lafayette, CA followed that afternoon.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting and has designated American Heroes Tribute for memorial contributions in honor of Drew Langevin at http://www.americanheroestribute.org/donate. Under “Donation Made In Honor Of” enter “Drew Langevin.”
