Kim James Drury , age 62, passed away unexpectedly of a brain aneurysm at his home in Preston on Thursday, February 18, 2016.

Kim was born on August 28, 1953, in Preston, Minn., the son of James and Lillian (Kingsbury) Drury.

Kim is survived by three sisters, Nancy Drury, Partricia (Marlow) Vander Plas and Dianne Ruud all of Preston; sister-in-law, Mary Drury of Winona; four nephews, Jasen Dahling of Winona, James (Ida) Drury of Denver, Colo., Jon (Stacie) Ruud of Siren, Wisc, and Darrin (Colette) Vander Plas of North Hampton, Mass.; five nieces, Janeen Coyle of Minneapolis, Vicki (Rod) Jorgenson of Kasson, Jessie (Robert) Camisa of Appleton, Wisc., Nicole (Jamie) Glisczinski of Mensha, Wisc., Jennifer (Jeff) Strack of St. Paul; four grand-nephews, Aaron, Adam and Ethan Ruud, and Eliot Strack; four grand-nieces, Molly, Henry and Josephine Glisczinski and Addison and Isabel Strack; and his good friends, Gary Scheevel and Pat Berg of Florenceville, Iowa.

He was preceded in death by his parents; grandparents, older brother, Richard Drury of Winona; and grand-niece, Ella Grace Strack of St. Paul. Kim was also preceded in death by his faithful, old friend, Buster, a beautiful red Irish Setter. It was a very sad day for Kim when Buster left this world.

Kim was a graduate of Preston-Fountain High School. Shortly after graduation he served briefly with the United States Air Force.

Kim was a talented worker and throughout the years he was employed at Tuohy Furniture of Chatfield; Halcon Corporation of Stewartville; and Kruegers Counter Tops of Rochester. The Top Shop opened for business in 1995 and Kim was their first employee. He worked there for 2l years, up until the time of his death. He loved that job and talked about his work often. He met interesting people from all walks of life and enjoyed that so much.

His employer shared this memory about him, “Kim was very dependable and almost never missed work. He was very much a craftsman and could build anything. His job was fabricating solid surface (Corian) counter tops which he was a master at. He was known by many in the solid surface fabrication industry and respected by all of them. Kim liked talking about cars and guns and an occasional talk of remote helicopters or airplanes. He will be missed much!” Wayne Owen & the Top Shop Guys.

Like his father before him, one of Kim’s favorite things to do on warm sum .....
