Drew Livieratos

Drew Livieratos, 53, passed away on Saturday, July 8th 2017. He leaves behind his mother Ingrid, son Sean, brother Ted, four nieces Rachel, Brittany, Kristen, and Courtney. Way too many girlfriends to name, and his dog Daisy. He was preceded in death by two wives Monica and Kina and his father Orestis.

Born an army brat in Fort Devens, Massachusetts he lived in many places all over the world including Germany where he spent the majority of his adolescence. He enjoyed the opportunity to travel with his brother and parents all over Europe, Ohio, Italy, South Carolina, North Carolina, and finally Idaho. He gained a love for rock and roll early in his life and from then on he was always a hard rocker.

In his early years he found his love for football and played the game from the Pee Wee Leagues all the way through high school. For the rest of his life, he was a knowledgeable athlete and sports remained a constant in his life, always able to come up with some of the hardest sports trivia answers. His favorite pro team was the Carolina Panthers and his favorite college football team was Boise State Broncos (he even had a blue and orange car). Andrew would not miss a day without watching some sort of sporting event live or on television; this was only surpassed by his love of redheads. After graduating high school he attended North Carolina State University where he failed miserably and found himself enlisting in the Army joining his father. While stationed in Italy he met his son’s mother, Kathy, where Sean was born. He liked to talk about his arctic and jungle deployments he did for his paratrooper training. And would always tell anyone who would listen about the most feared predator in the jungle – giant Army Ants! After his tour of duty, he attended Pembroke College in North Carolina where he successfully graduated with solid GPA and a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education. He loved to tell everyone how he kept his grades up while he worked four jobs and attended college at 100 miles an hour.

He then met his first wife Monica, while working as a physical education teacher in Rockhill South Carolina. They had a beautiful wedding with close friends and family. Three months later, tragically, she passed away in a car accident. Years later he met his second wife Kina and along with her two daughters, Tabby and Megan, they soon became Andrew’s new family. Andrew and Kina were huge animal lovers and bred Newfoundland’s and always had their beloved Chihuahuas around. Kina would later pass away unexpectedly, leaving Andrew a widow for the second time.

Mom (Oma) was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease 12 years ago, and for the rest of Drew’s life he was his mom’s primary caregiver. During the spring of 2013 he drove across the country to visit his brother and fell in love with Boise. Not long after he made the decision to move himself and Oma to Boise from North Carolina. While living here for the past three years he was able to travel across the country twice each summer with Oma. He made sure to always stop and take a selfie in front of the many NFL football stadiums across the country.

Drew was an awesome care giver for mom (absolutely the hardest job in the world). He also loved his protein drinks and body building supplements. He would take Mom to the gym daily (can you say gym rat?) He also rekindled his love for skiing while here in Boise and along with his brother they got in 41 ski days at Bogus Basin this past season. He loved to go downtown on the weekend and boogie all night. He was a regular at Live after Five and the Farmer’s Market. He recently purchased a new bicycle and loved riding around town. He also leaves behind the last three loves in his love – Monica, Rose, and Linda.
