D’ANDRE “Heavy” O’NEIL DRIVER was born on May 2, 1994 in Indianapolis Indiana to his loving parents Jacqueline Driver and Alfred Ferrell, Sr.  He accepted Christ at a young age of 7 at Mt. Olive Baptist Church and rededicated his life to Christ at New Beginnings Fellowship in 2010.

D’Andre graduated in 2012 from Indianapolis Public School, John Marshall High School where he inherited the nickname “Heavy”.  D’Andre loved everything about music.  Since high school he’s been writing lyrics in notebooks, he and his sister would create a beat on whatever’s close and she would be his biggest fan.  He felt like being a good father was his biggest achievement, his purpose for being a better man.  He was employed by Target Distributions Center.

Dre was blessed with the gift to counsel & encourage others and learned to embrace that gift, he never met a stranger.  He didn’t understand why perfect strangers of all ages would come to him and spill their entire life to him, but he welcomed each conversation.  He loved his family and friends wholeheartedly, always willing to protect those he loved from hurt, harm and danger that was in his might to do.  When he walked into a room you’ll be smiling before he even spoke to you, his light always shined. He enjoyed bowling and all card games because of the competitiveness of it, he loved challenges.  He looked forward to all holidays because he knew it was time to be with the entire family. His absence will be greatly missed, but God has a plan that we all must follow.  For this, his family release him to the Lord his Savior.

D’Andre “Heavy” O’Neil Driver departed this life on Thursday, December 31, 2020 at the age of twenty-six years, seven months.  He was preceded in death by his grandparents: Alford Ferrell, Rita Williams & Eugene Riley, Sr.; brother: Alfred Ferrell, Jr.; aunts: Eugenia Riley, Pearl E. Williams and Margaret A. Williams; cousins: Mariah Smith, Dominique Williams & Tiffany Hughes.

D’Andre leaves to cherish in loving memories his mother: Jacqueline Driver-Edmonds (Craig); father: Alfred Ferrell, Sr.; great-grandmother: Beatrice Driver; grandfather: Stanley O. Driver, Sr. (Yolanda); grandmothers: Patricia Aliyu and Essie Ferrell; son: D’Andre O. Driver, Jr.; sister: Waynisha Ferrell; step-sister: Jasmine Edmonds; step-brother: Craig Edmonds, Jr.; niece: Ryleigh Owens; nephew: Kendall Owens, Jr.; god-mother: Traci Lacy;  god-siblings: Danyele Lacy, Avis White, Jr. Darnell Nichols; great-aunts: Brenda Alexander (Arthur), Freida Fulson (Eric), Marsha White, Carrie Vaden (Jerry); great-uncles: Lex Driver, Leroy Driver, Jr. (Denise), William Driver, Sr., Billy and Jimmy Williams; four soul brothers: Jerimiah Vaden, Lee Driver, Antwan Sanders and LaStarza Johnson; a host of loving aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives and many cherished friends.
