Obituary For Michael Keith Drury

Age 53, of Conrod Settlement, NS
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Michael on Friday, May 28th 2021 at his home. Born in Montreal to Richard Drury and Cathern Harrison-Drury of Montreal. He was a Master Sailor in the Navy for over 13 years. He enjoyed a good cup of tea, a cold coke and Coronation Street. He had a love of all electronics. A die hard Montreal Canadiens fan and his favorite place to eat when he went home to Montreal was Lafleur’s. When it came to Christmas there was no one more excited to jump on your bed at 5 am and tell you Santa came.
Besides his parents he is survived by his common-law wife Shelly Benoit-Given, beloved Stepdaughter Kaitlyn Given at home, Stepson Sean Cook, Alberta. His amazing children Christopher, Ontario, Jared and Lauren at home. Also his children’s Mother Stephanie Corbett-Drury, Cole Harbour. Brother Stephen Drury and wife Panayiota (Peggy) Liakopolous, Montreal. Nephew Alexander and nieces Ekaterini (Katie) and Isabella. Aunt Maureen Harrison Sey (John) Quebec. Uncle David (Jeanie) Harrison, Alberta. Also all his extended family in Montreal. Mother-in-law Olivia Benoit, Grand Anse. In-laws; Stephen (Bernice) Benoit, Louisdale. Stacey (Doug) Bartlett, Truro. Shawna Wade, Halifax. Shane Benoit, Grand Anse. Also, many nieces and nephews on Shelly’s side of the family.
Dad always made our holidays extra special. Taking the time to decorate for all occasions especially our Birthdays where he would make specialized cakes for each and every one of us. Making every year better than the last. He was always a silent guy unless we were watching a movie together, then there would be laughter through the whole house no matter how many times he watched it.
There will be no viewing and the service will be held at a later date once Covid restrictions are lifted. As per Michael’s wishes he will be buried at sea. Online condolences may be sent to the family by visiting

  • Very sad to learn of Michael's passing. Drury, as I always knew him when we sailed and worked together, was an excellent man. A very hard worker, he liked to have his fun as well and he was always the first to step up to lend a hand to a fellow sailor in need. He was a tremendous example for us all. Fair winds and following seas my friend. Jerome Mitchell
