We are saddened to announce the passing of William Ryan Drew, who served of counsel at O’Neil, Cannon, Hollman, DeJong & Laing S.C. for more than thirty years.
Bill was a tireless public servant for the citizens of Milwaukee as an elected and appointed official serving in many capacities over the decades, including: Director of Administration for Milwaukee County, Commissioner of City Development for the City of Milwaukee, Treasurer of the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission, President of the Milwaukee Common Council, and Fourth District Milwaukee Alderman. In addition, he served as President of the Board of Directors for the City of Milwaukee Retiree’s Association, Board of Directors for the National Center for Housing Management, and was on the Board of Visitors for the Les Aspin Center for Government at Marquette University.
His counsel will be missed dearly by our firm. Our prayers and thoughts are with his family.
