Benjamin Andrew Haythorn

March 6, 1996 — August 27, 2022

It is with great sadness that the Haythorn family announces the passing of their beloved son Benjamin Andrew Drew Haythorn. Drew passed away in a tragic accident in Tucson, Arizona on Saturday, August 27, 2022. Drew was born on March 6, 1996, in Atlanta, Georgia. He was 26 years old.

Drew was a member of Asbury Church in Madison and an Eagle Scout. He graduated from Riverside Military Academy in Gainesville, Georgia and enjoyed time spent with his brothers in blue.

Drew had an adventurous and caring spirit. He never met a stranger and had the unique ability to remember names and faces of people he met along his journey. He was a lover of animals and had an especially fond place in his heart for Lacey and Prissy, the family puppies.

He loved nature and enjoyed camping, hiking, bicycling, and being outdoors. He completed numerous adventures to include: two trips to Philmont Scout Ranch, biking the C&O Canal and Silver Comet trails, as well as riding in several Spring City Cycle Club’s 50-mile annual fundraisers. Drew and his dad backpacked several sections of the Appalachian Trail.He relished music from all genres and made playlists to enjoy from countless artists.  

Drew leaves behind his parents, Thom and Shirlana Haythorn, and sister Mary Zappe and husband Richard.He is survived by his grandmothers, Barbara Haythorn and Shirley Folmar, as well as many more extended family members and friends. He was preceded in death by his beloved grandfather Ray Folmar. 

He was taken from us too soon and will be forever missed. If you were fortunate to really know Drew, you will, as we already do, miss him immeasurably.

A Celebration of Drew’s life will be held at Legacy Chapel Funeral Home in Madison, Alabama on Friday, October 21, 2022.  Visitation will begin at 10:00a with his Life Celebration following at 11:00a.
