It is with a heavy heart that we share the passing of our loved one, Kenny Wayne Drussel, on January 28, 2019.
Kenny was the first to be born up Muldoon Canyon at the Peavey Ranch on March 25, 1950 to Harold and Dorothy Drussel. It was during a large snow storm, and Kenny’s dad had to deliver him with the help of the party phone line. Kenny’s dad jokes that he thought it was the “ugliest baby ever.” They were flown out a few days later by snow plane.
Kenny graduated from Wood River High School and attended Boise State University. He grew up to be a beautiful man with a great big heart. Kenny, and his partner in crime since 1977, Jane, started Jane’s Paper Place in 1985 and Jane’s Artifacts in 2009.
Kenny has been a pillar in the community and his first love was helping children. He was always warm and friendly with a beautiful smile.
Kenny is survived by his wife, Jane; her sons Jay, Joe (Lorraine), David (Jade) and Mike (Robyn); granddaughters Lauren, Rachael, Isla, Ruby and Jenny; grandsons, Lucas, Duncan and Sean; his father, Harold Drussel; his stepmom, Carol; his brothers Zane (Cindy) and Brad and his sister Rellis as well as many loving extended family members. He was preceded in death by his Mom, Dorothy and his brother, Ross.
Donations in Kenny’s memory may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Memorial services will be conducted at 2:00 p.m., Saturday February 23, 2019, at Calvary Bible Church, 102 Coyote Bluff Drive, Hailey, Idaho.
