Robert A. DuBois, a resident of the Willow Springs, Missouri, area, quietly passed away while at Hospice House in Mountain Home, Arkansas, early Saturday morning, July 26, 2008, from natural causes. He was 65 years old.
He was born June 23, 1943 to Philip and Alice DuBois in Meriden, Connecticut.
Mr. DuBois lived primarily in Littleton, Colorado, for many years where he worked as a machinist for Lockheed Martin. Upon his retirement approximately three years ago, he moved to Willow Springs to be closer to his sister.
He enjoyed very much the small town, rural community of Willow Springs and all that living in the Ozarks affords a person. He was very active and was a member of the Star Theatre group and performed in several plays, most recently “The Secret Garden.” However, he especially enjoyed his canine companions, Baby, Dolly, and Angel. He was described as being very intelligent, funny, and quick witted. He had numerous friends both in Willow Springs and Cabool, Missouri, and will be greatly missed by his family and all who knew him.
Mr. DuBois was preceded in death by his parents and a brother-in-law, Thomas E. Boivin.
He is survived by his two brothers and a sister, Philip L. DuBois, Jr. and wife Erika of Willis, Texas, Dennis DuBois and wife Zuni of Amarillo, Texas, and Christina Boivin of Willow Springs; his nieces and nephews, Kimberly Russo, husband Tony and children Nick, Audrey, and Grace of Centennial, Colorado, Philip and Charles DuBois of Amarillo, Texas, and Rebecca Heaton and daughter Micah Montgomery of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
At Mr. DuBois’ request no services will be held at this time. Arrangements are under the direction of Willow Funeral Home.
