Mr. Duhon was an Oil & Gas Landman from the mid 1970’s until his retirement at age 69. He was a people person who never met a stranger. His personality was larger than life. If he spoke with you for more than 10 minutes more than likely he made you laugh! He loved traveling, music, dancing, going out to eat and get togethers with his family and friends. He will be missed by all who knew him.
Special thanks to the staff at Medsource Home Health, St. Joseph Hospice, The Carpenter House, Dr. Thomas Voitier II, and all the other Drs. and nurses that tended to him at Lafayette General and the Cancer Center of Acadiana. He was so selfless when making decisions about his treatment, considering not only himself but also his wife. Also a special thanks to Deby Richard for keeping their fur baby Pepper and thanks to family, friends and neighbors that helped out by staying with them, bringing food to Barbara and for their prayers.
Donations may be made in his memory to St. Jude Children’s Hospital or St. Joseph Hospice.
