Meet your neighbor: Ronnie Drew

July 11, 2018 – Ronnie Drew moved to Excelsior Springs from Atlanta by way of Kansas City a decade ago. He said he liked the area after doing some work in Kansas City for a company that does painting work nationwide. After meeting someone online, he said he came to Excelsior Springs for true love.

He said he loves the quietness here. He enjoys the peacefulness of not having to hear gunshots every night, he said.

Drew works as a professional poker player. His biggest goal, he said, involves traveling to Las Vegas to play with the “big boys” and get his plaque on the wall.

Drew travels to see his six children and 14 grandchildren, located in Kansas, Georgia, Virginia and locally. One granddaughter followed into his footsteps by becoming an engineer. Drew worked in engineering while enlisted in the Army. Lily, Drew’s furry daughter, lives with him.
