Brick - Bruce Andrew Drury 66 years old, passed away too soon on February 26, 2018 in the arms of his loving wife. A true renaissance man, Bruce was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana, but moved with his parents as an infant to the West Coast. He grew up in San Jose and Sacramento, CA and attended High School and College in Oregon. Bruce played football for Oregon State and the game became a lifelong passion. He graduated from the University of Oregon in 1973 and moved to Southern California to become an Athletic Director for the city of Hermosa Beach. In his next venture, Bruce became involved and worked for Republic Airlines and his love of travel began. In 1985, he met and married the love of his life, Marian, and the wonderful journey continued. He took an early retirement from the airlines in 1986 and pursued yet another career in the financial markets. During the 90's, Bruce worked at the Chicago Board of Trade and money markets, and investing became yet another passion throughout his life. During the 2000's Bruce and his wife Marian, owned and operated a swimsuit shop in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ which he thoroughly enjoyed. Both him and his wife retired in recent years but remained active in their community. Bruce served as a Board of Trustee Member and Treasurer for his Lion's Head Community Association. He is survived by his wife, best friend, and partner of 35 years, Marian Feeney-Drury; sister, Diane Akhras and her two children Randa and Ramsey; brother-in-law, Hank Feeney and his wife Kit and their two children, James and Hannah who were a huge and interesting part of his life.
