On November 4, 2018, Watters was killed during a training exercise at Fort Lewis in Tacoma, Washington. The North High School graduate and new father was 23.

Military honors will be performed by the United States Army. Burial will be held at Sunset Memorial Park Cemetery at a later date.

A GoFundMe page was set up by a family friend for Carley, Drew’s wife. It has raised $13,575 in two days. The goal was to raise $10,000.
