Darcy Drury Obituary

Darcy Wayne Drury was born December 28, 1950, in Lloydminster, AB, son of Grace and Lee Drury, father to Shawn (m. Melissa c. Baden, Colleena, Lilyanne, and Bremen), Evan (m. Candace c. Reiya and Russ), Laura; and was brother to Wanda (c. Will and Bede), Kemp (Gwen), and Donna. Survived by former wife Rose.

All his life, Darcy greatly enjoyed the outdoors. From a very young age, he and his devoted four-footed pal Yeller would trek across fields to the banks of the North Saskatchewan River, where he built a hut into one of the banks. Years later, he and Rose built a family dream home on a hillside high above that same river.

He was an avid hunter and fisherman, as well as a skilled mechanic - in the late 60s inside the backyard garage, he completely restored a little vintage Thames Van ice cream truck into a purple hot rod recognized all around town. In his many projects, and especially his beautiful woodworking, he was inventive, creative, perfectionist, and determined. Throughout the working years, he worked with his dad and brother in Drury’s Plaster and Stucco.

In the later years Darcy chose a solitary life, with the constant company of a loyal dog, and his kids and grandkids popping in to pester him as often as possible. His house was made full again in recent years with Evan and family moving into that same house overlooking the river. Darcy was able to live out his final years with joy in seeing, "the old house alive again,” which renewed his own ambitions and goals for travel and adventure.

He passed away peacefully and appropriately at his home, the place where he was the most happy. As per Darcy’s wishes no service will be held. Arrangements have been entrusted to Eternal Memories Funeral Service and Crematorium – Vanessa Macnab Funeral Director.
