DRURY, KONNER DOUGLAS, 10, of Northfield, passed away January 3, at Fletcher Allen Children’s Hospital after a three-year-long battle with neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of cancer. He was with his mother, Rebecca Drury, who was his principal caregiver and whom he adored for her attentiveness, comfort and dedication. Konner was born in Berlin, Sept. 24, 2003. He attended school at Northfield Elementary. Konner was an avid sportsman who enjoyed fishing and hunting. This past fall, Konner passed the hunter safety course and was able to hunt with his Papa and his two great uncles, Dan and Kevin, and was successfully rewarded with his first deer. Konner loved animals of all kinds, especially his beagle, Jack. Konner also enjoyed many outdoor activities such as snowmobiling, riding his ATV and swimming in any body of water he could find. There were many ATV trips over the mountain to his Aunt Mandy’s and Uncle Nathan’s. He could also be found inside, enjoying cooking with his Nana at any hour to soothe his change in taste buds, wild game being one of his favorite things to cook. Another food he especially enjoyed was his Aunt Krystal’s banana bread. Oftentimes, Konner could be seen riding alongside his Papa in the truck, plowing during the winter and helping with lawn mowing in the summer. Sometimes it was unclear who the boss was. Family and friends were a big part of Konner’s life, which he looked forward to, whether it was spending time with his mother, at holiday gatherings, going to his Aunt Krystal’s and Uncle Rick’s to spend the night with his cousins, or going out to eat. Konner enjoyed spending time with his school buddy, Travis, who came to visit him often to play video games. One of Konner’s greatest memories was his trip to Florida, with his family, where he stayed at Give Kids The World Village. Some of his favorite things were swimming in the ocean, SeaWorld, Kennedy Space Center and scaring his Nana on the amusement park rides. All of this was made possible through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
