Drew Allen Danko

February 2, 1985 ~ July 19, 2020 (age 35)


Drew Allen Danko, age 35, of Colchester, passed away at home on July 19, 2020.  Born in Norwich on February 2, 1985, he was the youngest son of Phillip N. and Cynthia L. (Borkiewicz) Danko, with whom he resided. He was a caregiver and best friend to his father who he loved so much; he was also a pillar of strength and support to his mother. Drew was a lifelong resident of Colchester, graduating from Bacon Academy with the class of 2003.  He loved to work on cars, weld and fix all kinds of engines. He had a wonderful knowledge to take something that was inoperable and do whatever it took to make it run again. Drew enjoyed wood working and wood burning.  He possessed a very special bond with any animal he encountered and especially loved all five of the family dogs, especially Jasmine. He will be remembered as a good friend to anyone in need and a great friend to those he had close friendships with. Drew loved his family beyond measure. In addition to his parents, he leaves behind his brother and best friend, Phillip Danko, Jr. of Johnstown, PA; his sister, Dawn Danko and her husband, Lee Phillips of Narraganset, RI; a half-sister, Windy of Connecticut; and many extended family members and friends.  Calling hours will be held on Monday, July 27th from 4-6pm at the Aurora-McCarthy Funeral Home, 167 Old Hartford Rd., Colchester.
