James Drury
April 18, 1934 - April 6, 2020

James Drury, star of the long running western 'The Virginian', died Monday at his home in Houston, Texas. He was 85 years old. James was born in New York but grew up mostly on his family's ranch in the Salem Area. While staring in the popular western on NBC from 1962 until 1971, Drury served as Grand Marshall of the 1964 Santiam Bean Festival Parade in Stayton and was also a guest entry the following year in 1965. As another participant in the parade at the age of 5, meeting the star in full black leather western outfit including the 6 gun on his hip, was quite a memorable experience!

Many articles on his life can be found online.
