We will always remember Drue as a faithful member of our church and a great friend. He always had a positive attitude and cared deeply about his friends.
He was loved by many and will be missed greatly. We send our sincere sympathy to his family.

I worked for Drue at the D-X gas station on Main Street from about 1956 - 1960. Drue was a great guy and I very much enjoyed working for him and he taught me great deal about repairing automobiles. I remember his daughters being about 4-6 years old when I worked for him.

I want to express my sincerest condolences to his family and I know this is very difficult time since I lost my wife just over 10 years ago.
