Dennis and family-----
Our deepest and sincere sympathies for the loss of your son.

Dr./Mrs Alfred D. Conigy
As a young man coming sraight out of vo-tech and entering the work force while beginning my senior year, I must say that Drew has always been a good and caring gentleman to me.  He has taught me a lot in the workforce on the floor that I was not taught in school, such as operating machinery, welding and fabrication tips, and how to be a helping steward to others and to the comapany of the industry.  Drew will always have a good place in my heart, having only known him little over a year, and will be surely missed by his close co-workers and by myself.  Rest in peace Drew, your legacy will forever live in our thoughts.

So sorry to hear about Drew.  I was in the class of 1984 with him and remember him from homeroom...he sat close to me. I know this time is tough and no words can take the pain away.  My prayers are with you and will be. May God be with you in this difficult time.

I've only worked with Drew for less then a year.  I will remember Drew first as a good man who showed a lot of pride in his work.  It showed in what he did every day. He was also a positive happy person to work around.  He will be missed not only for his skills but his example of what a great co-worker should be. I hope our thoughts and  memories of Drew helps your family through this time. God Bless

Kevin Young

Drew was one of those people who was a pleasure to be around - always pleasant, fun-loving, and above all, a terrific husband and father.  When I think of Drew, I'll remember his laugh and how much he loved my friend Denise for the wonderful person she is.  He will always live in the hearts of those who were blessed to know him.

Denise Kurr

My heartfelt sympathies go out to your family. As you know, Drew and I spent a lot of time together when we were growing up, and I must say that he was a true friend and he meant a lot to me and it saddens me to hear of his passing. Your family will be in our prayers. God bless you all.

Michael Wheeling and family

Words cannot express the sorrow in my heart that Drew has left this earth.  I am so grateful he was sent to the Navy base in WA in 2009 on a mission. We had a glorious visit sharing stories, thoughts and dreams never knowing at that time of course, it would be our last get together. Drew was a sincere, loving and caring person who I adored and loved.  To Denise & Danielle, may our heavenly Father hold your hand and bless you abundantly as he embraces Drew to eternal life. I'm so sorry.  Aunt Janet


We will all miss Drew.  Our thoughts and our prayers are with you.

Dave & Lauri Wagner


I am very saddened to hear about Drew.  My heartfelt sympathies go out to you and the entire family.  It was so nice to catch up with him at the class reunion - he was very proud of his family and everything in his life.  My thoughts and prayers are with you.  God bless.

Nancy (Penrod) Forrest


We were so shocked and saddened to hear about Drew. 

 Please know that you are in our prayers.

Dear Mr. & Mrs Borsuk, Denise, Danielle, Debbie, and Dennis,

I was very lucky to be a childhood friend of Drew's and of the family, and I am so very sorry to hear that Drew was ill and is no longer with us.

I can see from the photo in the Tribune that Drew never lost the mischievous but good natured twinkle in his eye that was so endearing.  (And that he grew to look so much like his father!)  He had a great heart, and I know what a loss it is for you.

I'm keeping you in my thoughts and my prayers.

John Penrod

My sincerest condolences for your loss. Our shop works on the forklifts and other equipment in the building he worked in at times and I talked to some of Drew's co-wokers and they all said what a great guy and good worker he was. You and your family are in our prayers and thoughts.

Bob Marconi

To all who mourn the loss of Drew- my deepest sympathy.

Rev. Dwight Schlaline

Hi, I am Drew's old classmate from 1984 Westmont Hilltop. I just heard about Drew's passing and I am so very sorry. I remember him so vividly bouncing around the hallways and classrooms. He always had a smile and seemed to always be having fun and stirring up something everywhere he went! I will keep you all in my prayers.
