Tow Truck Parade Honors NH Tower

Our condolences to the family and acquaintances of Russell Drew, Sr. of Tilton, NH. He passed away on March 9. Drew owned Russell Drew's Wrecker Service and Salvage Yard in Tilton, NH and was a member of the NH Towing Association for more than 40 years. Here's the story from WMUR 9:

TILTON, N.H. -- Tow truck drivers from all around the state gathered in Tilton on Sunday to remember a friend who died suddenly last Wednesday.
Russell Drew Sr. was 82 years old. He was a veteran and two-time Citizen of the Year.
Drew Sr. operated his own wrecker service and salvage yard, and made friends with truck drivers all across New England.
"Couldn't ask for a better guy; knowledgable, friendly. An all around good guy," said one friend.
"Anyone who knows anything about towing around New England knows Russell, and once they heard he passed it was just the thing to do," said another.
Drew Sr.'s family was honored by the dozens of drivers who drove around town in unison.
"This parade today leaves me speechless, it's great," said his grandson.
