GEORGE BRIAN DRUMMOND George Brian Drummond died peacefully at his daughter’s home in Kailua-Kona on December 5, 2017, at age 91, leaving behind a rich legacy that will long be cherished by family, friends, and all who knew him. He was a kind and loving father, grandfather, joke-teller and song-singer, advertising sales executive, British Army paratrooper, classical music lover, avid reader, world traveler, football (soccer) devotee and so much more. Born September 18, 1926, in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, Brian forever maintained a deep love for his country and heritage. In 1960, opportunity oversea lured him to Hawaii, where he led a successful 30-year career in newspaper advertising sales for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. His kind heart, ready smile, youthful spirit and perfectly timed jokes will be remembered and missed. Brian is survived by his daughter, Michele "Buki" (Brian); 6 grand- children and 1 great grandchild. He was predeceased by his son, David. Brian’s life will be celebrated in Honolulu with family and friends, in the only way deserving of his memory; afternoon high tea.
