Drew Jacob Pickering, born June 9, 1995 was a beloved and cherished son, brother, father, friend, blackberry boy, and a constant for everyone in his life. Drew, of Amarillo, TX, died Saturday, November 11, 2023.

Drew was raised in Amarillo where he graduated from Randall High School and earned his bachelor’s degree from West Texas A&M University. Drew worked as a computer programmer for Perdue, Brandon, Fielder, Collins & Mott.

Drew embodied selflessness. He would celebrate his birthday on a separate day so that a big fuss wouldn’t be made over him, but would spoil others with memorable gifts for their birthdays. He made everyone feel like a priority and would drop everything when called to help. Drew was so nervous about becoming a father, but that all changed when he saw Piper for the first time. Piper was his world, and he was a wonderful father. He loved to watch the Cowboys with his girls, Rachael and Piper, and loved to play video games with his brothers. He learned many life lessons alongside his mother who showed him endless support. Drew loved everything Golden Girls and could lighten up any situation with a joke or a story. He was one of a kind and will truly be missed. Drew Pickering, we love you as big as the sky.

He is survived by his companion, Rachael Widener of Amarillo, TX, daughter Piper Pickering of Amarillo, TX; mother, Wendy Volden, and husband Kent, of Amarillo, TX; father, Jason Pickering, and wife Tracey, of Frisco, TX; brothers Bailey Pickering and wife Macy, Matthew Pickering, Kian Volden, and stepbrothers Greyson Pickering and Kerrington Pickering; grandparents, Kathy and Van Northern of Amarillo, TX.

Memorial services will be held on Wednesday, November 15, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. at Boxwell Brothers Ivy Chapel, 2800 Paramount Blvd., with Erick Kirby officiating. Arrangements provided by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors.
