Burton

 

Roy Dueitt passed away at home on November 24, 2023 at the age of 91.

He was born on October 20, 1932 at Hermann Hospital in Houston, TX to Lottie and Stephen Dueitt. He graduated in 1951 from Aldine High School.  While in high school, he met Jean Kimball whom he married on November 21, 1951.  They celebrated their 72nd anniversary 3 days prior to his passing.  He is survived by his wife Jean, daughter Janice, son Travis, and grandson Justin.

Upon his retirement from Ingersoll-Rand, he immediately started making plans to move to Burton, where he had hunted for many years and already had friends in the area.  Even before moving up here full time, he became involved in the community by volunteering at the Burton Cotton Gin, Burton Lions Club, Rocky Creek Volunteer Fire Department and Washington County Wildlife Association.

Roy was his own person.  He never met a stranger and always announced his arrival by whistling.  He loved anything associated with the outdoors: hunting, fishing, and gardening, just to name a few. Upon becoming a Burton Cotton Gin Boll Weevil, his gardening and handyman skills were put to use.  Most mornings were started with his fellow Weevils drinking coffee and solving the problems of the world.  Afterwards, he would head home to “mow the north 40” and tinker in his workshop.

He was also an avid bowler.  He was a founding member of the Sons of Hermann State Bowling Tournament, which has been going strong for 58 years.

Once Burton became their permanent residence, Roy and Jean joined St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Brenham. He often said that the best part of being a greeter was “ringing the bell”.

There will be a private interment service at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church.

Memorials made be made to St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and Burton Cotton Gin.

Roy never turned down a cold beer, so let’s raise a glass in his honor.
