LLoyd N. DuBois

June 10, 1922 - October 15, 2015

My wonderful loving Daddy, Lloyd N. DuBois, 93, passed away peacefully on October 15, 2015 in the home of his daughter, surrounded by his family.

 

Daddy was born on June 10, 1922 in his grandparent’s home near Erath, Louisiana.  He grew up in Erath and St. Martinville, Louisiana.

 

After high school graduation, he enlisted and served his country in the Army Air Corps (AAC) in Labrador, Iceland.  Daddy met mom, Lois Wilson, who also served as Women’s Army Air Corp. (WAAC).  They met at an Army dance, fell in love and married.

 

After serving in the military, he and mom moved to Utah to live close to mom’s family.  They arrived in Utah in 1946.  They had three children, Nick DuBois (Karen Tafoya), Michelle Dodson and Teena (Steve) Hartmann.

 

Daddy always lived in Utah but travelled the U.S. working as an outdoor billboard salesman.  Dad attended Weber State College, but his education/knowledge was through life experiences and reading.  Dad always knew the answer to any question I ever had and I will miss him deeply.

 

Daddy has four grandchildren, Shaun (Jandi) Dodson, Jamey (Amy) Dodson, Kellie Crandall and Nicole DuBois, 11 great-grandchildren and one great-great grandson.

 

Daddy is preceded in death by his wife, Lois Wilson; son, Nick DuBois; parents, Eve and Aurelie DuBois; sister, Lola Bourque; and brother, Minos DuBois.

 

Daddy loved life and all the wonderful things in it.  He laughed a lot, we travelled together numerous times.  He has visited almost every state in the U.S. and knows something interesting about each one.

 

Daddy loved to build and repair things.  He was also a great painter.  Dad would look at something he was interested in making and sit down and draw the plans.  Dad had lots of common sense which helped with all things.  Dad’s fun personality was one reason he had great friends.

 

A special thanks to Elaine, Tiffany and Lisa from Applegate Hospice who cared for daddy in his last months.

 

A Celebration of his Life will be held Monday, October 19, 2015 from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. at Leavitt’s Mortuary, 836 36th Street, Ogden, Utah.  Graveside Services will follow at Leavitt’s Aultorest Memorial Park.

Michelle, Teena and family, I just saw your dads obituary and wanted to let you know how sorry I am to hear that he has passed away. I have many memories of your dad when hanging out at your house. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless

Michelle, your daddy was very special to me. I will miss talking to him and visiting. The memories I have of our time together will be with me always. He was an amazing character...always with a laugh and corny joke. The world has lost one of the best, most loving people. I'm proud to be his goddaughter.

I am so sorry for the loss of your Dad. Lloyd was such a sweet man. He was always so caring of his clients when he was a Senior Companion. We were very blest to have him serve as a Senior Companion for many years. We will miss him a lot.

Hi Mitchell and Teena, I just wanted to express my sympathy at the passing of your dad. I have very fond memories of him and his great sense of humor. Sincerely, Ralph

My sincere condolences to Michelle & Teena. I remember you as young girls (I was young then, too), and Nick and your parents well. My parents moved next door to your parents in the summer of 1954; and, then moved to Roy in late 1958. Every year or two, I drive past our old homes there on Harrison Blvd. About five or six years ago, while in the Harrisville Wal-Mart, I walked past an elderly gentleman sitting near the front restrooms, whose eyes I recognized. I turned and stated, "I bet your first name is Lloyd." Answer: "yes." Next I stated, "I bet your last name is DuBois." To which your dad answered "yes." I had not seen him in over 40 years, yet recognized his friendly face and eyes. We visited for nearly an hour as he waited for some of the residents of the Golden Hours Center he gave rides to go shopping each month. Occasionally, I hear you dad singing the tune 'Volare' which was a hit in the late '50's. He sang it well. My father, Charles, considered Lloyd to be one of his best friends over the years. I'll let my brothers Bruce and Scott know. May God bless and comfort you and your family. Charles

My condolences to your family. I did not know your dad, but was friends with Nick in high school. Quite a shock to find he passed as well, my condolences to you for that loss as well.

Michelle and Teena, I am very sorry for your loss. Lloyd and Lois were very good people and I will always remember them. I spent many hours at your house while growing up, hanging out with Nick. Nick was one of my best friends and Lloyd was always really good to us. He even let my brother and me park our 1929 Ford Cabriolet in your front yard forever! After Nick and I returned home from the Navy and both got married, we remained best friends. Later, when my wife and I would go to the DDO officer's club to dance, we would run into your folks. We always had a good time with them. Best of wishes, Ron Palmer

I am so sorry for you loss, Michelle. Your father was a kind, fun loving man who loved life. He lived his life to the fullest and always had a kind word for everyone. It was a pleasure to have met him. My deepest sympathy, Diana
