Hunter Drew’s funeral was held in Girard, Illinois Tuesday

When PJ Staab heard from a fellow funeral director about Hunter Lee Drew’s love for motorcycles, he had the ultimate tribute.

A 2013 Harley-Davidson funeral hearse Staab had personally made for the Springfield funeral home transported the remains of Hunter, a three-year-old from Carlinville who sustained a brain bleed and died on Oct. 20, on his “final ride” Tuesday.

“I thought,” said Staab, president of Staab Funeral Homes, “it might honor the young boy. We volunteered it to help bring about peace and healing for his life.”

About 30 local motorcyclists took part in the ride from Girard, where Hunter’s funeral was held at Davis-Anderson Funeral Home, to the Illinois Capitol Building in Springfield.
