Obituary for Edward "Frenchy" DuBois

Edward "Frenchy"  DuBois
Beloved husband, father, son, and friend, Edward "Frenchy" DuBois, 70, passed away on 12 December 2017 at Skagit Valley Hospital in Mt. Vernon, Washington.

Edward DuBois was born in Abbeville, Louisiana on 4 January 1947 to Eddie and Wanda DuBois. In 1963 he joined the U.S. Navy and attended Recruit Training at San Diego, California. Following aircraft mechanic training, he was assigned to Heavy Attack Squadron 2 at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island; followed by service in Viet Nam with later duties at GSE, NAS Whidbey Island; Attack Squadron 128; Attack Squadron 95 (Plank Owner); NAMTGD Whidbey; and Tactical Electronic Squadron 132, from which he retired following 20 years active duty.

He then worked several mechanic jobs in Oak Harbor; joining BOSC Del-Jen at NAS Whidbey, and finally ended his working career as a lead mechanic at Island Transit. He retired fully to a sports-loving life of crabbing, fishing, camping, and spending time with family and friends.

Edward leaves behind the love of his life, Carolyn, after over 50 years together; his son Darren (Holly) of Pt. Angeles and daughter Suzanne (Leon) of Oak Harbor; two granddaughters, Mackenzie and Emerson; his mother Wanda Melebeck, brother Charles and sister Mary all of Erath, Louisiana. Edward’s father, Eddie Dubois, preceded him in death.

Services will be on 21 December 2017, 2 p.m. at Wallin Funeral Home at 1811 NE 16th Avenue, Oak Harbor, Washington with a follow-on remembrance event at Frank's Place, 32945 SR 20, Oak Harbor, Washington.

Memorial donations may be made to: Washington State Council of the Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 1109 P.O. Box 627 Clear Lake, WA 98235.
