It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Frank “Frankie” Pierson-Nicholas Drew of Ossipee, NH. On Friday, September 14, 2018 Frankie made the choice, for reasons only he will ever know, to leave this world at the age of 22.
Frankie was born on October 9th, 1995 in North Conway, NH to Frank and Kimberly (Pemberton) Drew. He grew up in Tamworth and attended Kennett High School. Frankie was an enthusiastic worker, he most recently enjoyed working for his friend at Green-Step Landscape Design. In his youth, he looked forward to turkey and deer hunting with his Dad. An accomplished baseball player, Frankie excelled as an athlete from an early age. He played for Tamworth Cal Ripken, and on multiple All-Star Teams. Sandwich Lot Baseball was a highlight of every summer vacation for Frankie. He respected Coach T as a mentor, teacher and life-long friend. Also, an avid sports fan, he religiously followed the Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins and Patriots. In recent years, Frankie enjoyed riding snowmobiles or four wheeling with his brother, Dan, and spending time with his friends. Frankie will be fondly remembered for the mischievous twinkle in his eye, his infectious laugh and his passion for sports.
