Drew's father, grandfather, and great-grandfather all held judicial positions in either the city of Minden, or Webster and surrounding parishes. His son, Richard Harmon Drew, Jr., of Minden is currently serving his second 10-year term on the Louisiana Second Circuit Court of Appeal, based in Shreveport.
