Obituary for Richard "Dick" Merle Duba

Richard "Dick" Merle Duba, age 88, passed away on Wednesday, June 20, 2018, at Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls, SD.
Richard was born on October 31, 1929 to Merle and Mabel (Gustafson) Duba. On November 2, 1949 Richard married Alice Mae Hindt, daughter of Raymond and Jeanetta Hindt.
Richard worked for Duba Sheet Metal Works until 1969 when he took a job teaching sheet metal courses at North Dakota State School of Science. In 1970, he took over the family business, Duba Sheet Metal Works, from his father until 2002 when his son, Bruce, took over the business.
He was a dedicated businessman for many years and a faithful member of Lakeside Church (formerly First Baptist Church) in Worthington. Richard served on the Worthington Fire Department for 25 years, was a member of Worthington Duck Club, served as a Gideon, and served in the Army.
Richard was a dedicated husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He loved to spend time with his family playing cards, reminiscing over a bowl of popcorn or ice cream, going to the lake, or spending time at the duck slough. He loved to hunt and fish and was always looking forward to the next fish he could catch.
He is survived by his wife Alice Mae Duba; three sons, Randy Duba, Coon Rapids, MN; Bruce (Cindy) Duba, Worthington, MN; Jon (Beth) Duba, Huron, SD; seven grandchildren, Tami (Tom) Timmons; Ben (Melinda) Duba; Colleen (Joseph) Wichern; Laura Duba; Katelyn Duba; Courtney Duba; and Carson Duba; three great grandchildren, Alyssa Timmons; Emily Duba; and Brayden Wichern; four siblings, Darlene Broste; Dianne (Garvin) Prins; David Duba and Vickie; Douglas (Linda) Duba; and several nieces and nephews.
Richard was preceded in death by his parents, Merle and Mabel Duba; daughter-in-law, Joanne Duba; brother-in-law, Burton Broste; sister-in-law, Barbara A. Duba.
