Our family was fortunate to know and be friends with John, Angela, David and Allison. What a wonderful family! We were neighbors and friends for 18 years on Geneva Rd. When Angie and I recently moved to Arizona, John and Angela hosted a neighborhood party at their home to wish us luck and best wishes on our relocation. We truly cherish the conversation, laughs, and memories we had at that get together! Angela, thank you so much for you and John doing that for us! John was hard working, friendly, humble, so proud of his family...a man to look up to. We will miss him so much. We regret that we could not be in WNY to attend services and express our condolences in person. All our love, Cliff, Angie, Liz, Nicole

John, became my best friend over the past 25 years. I will always remember and admired him as a man of strength the way he fought his illness for several years without a complaint and endurance that few could rival. Always enjoyed the times and conversations we shared together whether it was riding the chairlift at KB, on the golf course or our favorite, kayaking the white water of the Cattaraugus at Zoar Valley. He was well read and always interesting but at the same time a good listener. He had the personality that made you feel good, always enjoying the time you spent with him. He was a true gentleman, hard working, honest and caring. His family was first and most important as he loved his Angela and always so proud of his son Dave and daughter Allison. He will be missed by so many friends and hearts he's touched along his life's journey. Cheers to you John, really going to miss the beers, laughs and fun we had together. Love ya man!

Sincere condolences to the entire Drozda family at this very sad time. I can only imagine your sense of loss and am so, so sorry. Seeing the family pics brings back a rush of memories of the old days at Amherst High School and the house on Burroughs Drive. In his quiet way, John was leader of the pack. I'll be thinking of his wife and kids, as well as Mary, Dan, Tom, Julie and Bob.

I loved talking with John. Didn't do it enough. His positive but realistic attitude made it easy to have poignant conversations. He was humble in accepting both hugs and prayer and felt strongly about his relationship with his Lord and savior. More than once I went to summit for a workout which I never got to because John and I talked for 30 or 40 minutes and I enjoyed that much more than my workout. Along with many others, I will miss him however I am happy that he is now at peace in the arms of his Jesus.

So sorry this amazing man is no longer with us. I send all the love I have to the whole Drozda family. You are all unwavering in your support of one another. May you soon only remember happy and loving moments, rather than the sadness you are experiencing now.
