He was the beloved husband of the late Charlotte Glasser Drucker; loving father of Thomas Drucker (Betsy), Elizabeth Drucker Rivitz (the late Mitchell) and the late Carolyn Drucker; devoted grandfather of William Drucker Rivitz and Benjamin Drucker Rivitz; and dear brother of the late Arnold Drucker. In his later years, he greatly enjoyed the companionship of Sharon Campodonico.

My father,David Cronin, served on LST66 with Dr.Drucker in the Pacific during WW2. He was my Dads best friend in the service and an honored name in our house. His care for the injured in that conflict was truly heroic. He was a great man.Rest in Peace.That generation has now passed into history but will never be forgotten. Deepest condolences to his family from all the Cronin's.

Ed Drucker was a wonderful friend, physician, and neighbor. Dennis always adored him as a loving family member. I will never forget how he welcomed me into the Whittaker family when I first arrived in California. He will be missed. Love to you Tom and Betsy.

To Dr. Drucker, You were my wonderful neighbor, counselor, friend and family. I will miss you very much.
To Tom and Betsy, We grew up in a neighborhood of friends and family. I will miss Dr. Drucker's musical and BBQ talents, and preparing fireworks at our neighborhood 4th of July celebrations. Whenever I came home from college, after I placed one foot in our home, I would race across the street to have my "fire side" chats with Dr. Drucker. He was a great surgeon as my double hernia surgery performed by Dr. Drucker remains thoroughly repaired today 45 years later. He was a serious and avid tennis player. He was a great husband and wonderful father. He was my great mentor, a wonderful role model and an irreplaceable man. Denny
