Kenneth E. Jury
Services for Kenneth E. "Kelly" Jury will be 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Clark Shields Funeral Home in Forest by Pastor Dennis Livingston. Burial will be in Hueston Cemetery.
Friends may call at 12:30 p.m. until time of services Wednesday. He died at 11:35 p.m. Sunday Feb. 14, 2010 at Birchaven Village, Findlay.
He was born Sept. 22, 1921 in Nevada to the late Floyd L. and Margaret L. (Keller) Jury. He married Lois Jean Poling on Nov. 9, 1949 and she preceded him in death on Jan. 23, 2010.
Surviving are two daughters, six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren; and a sister.
He was preceded in death by a son, Michael Jury and a daughter, Marilyn J. (Jury) Keating. Kelly was in the armed services from 1943-1946. It was here his love of flying began. Later in life, he enjoyed flying remote-controlled planes with guys at Phillips' airstrip and found much pleasure in piloting his own planes for many years. He was proud to be an honorary member of The Top of Ohio Pilots Association of Bellefontaine. He was co-owner of the Chat and Chew Restaurant in Forest and K and K Trailer Sales. He also owned and operated a Marathon truck route for many years until his retirement in 1980. His last business venture was as co-owner of Custom Probe Company. He was a member of the Kenton Moose Lodge and Forest American Legion Post 259.
Kelly was a proud 60-year member of the Masons, and the Elks where he eagerly engaged in his passion for playing cards. He was a member of the Forest Auxiliary Police as well. His credo was to do good deeds whenever and wherever possible and try to learn something new each day. Kelly looked on the bright side of life. His upbeat, positive, never-give-up attitude, which he shared with his buddies at the Tree Town Roundtable, will be missed by friends and family alike.
