John Drury was the sixth child of eight, from a strong, zealous, Catholic family. His father was a musician who ran a store that sold musical instruments and offered music lessons. Music was an important part of family life, and Drury showed this talent later at Riverview with his commitment to liturgical music. He had a fine voice.

Drury was a genuinely loved family man. He was a good, cheery company and was always present when the family need succour and understanding. He participated in family marriages and anniversaries, as well as funerals. Indeed, his whole life was for others, and people loved him for his generous, giving spirit.
