Louis Lyle Dubrul, age 79, of Carsonville, passed away on New Year’s Day of a broken heart.

Louie was born at home on September 28, 1938 in St. Clair Shores, to the late Phyllis and Richard (Dick) Dubrul. He was the oldest of six children.

Louie met Constance Louise Edwards (Louise) in church when he was 14 and Louise was 12. They dated through high school and after Louie spent two years in the Navy traveling the world, the two got married on July 26, 1958. Louie and Louise were a fun couple who liked to throw parties and dance the Jitterbug. They went on to have two daughters and a set of twins. Louie ran a Grading and Excavating business in St. Clair Shores before moving the family and business to Lewiston, Michigan in 1971. In 1980, Louie and Louise sold the business and moved to California where he worked for the Heavy Equipment Operators Union until he retired in 1999. He and Louise spent their retirement fixing up a 75-yearold farmhouse back in Michigan. Louie was handy and could fix anything. They also rescued baby raccoons, raised chickens, pheasants and barn cats. Louie and Louise made candles together that everyone enjoyed. In the summers it was an evening ritual for them to sit on the porch swing relaxing with a glass of wine or a bottle of beer. Louie was the president of the local chapter of Lions for two years and both Louie and Louise volunteered selling concessions at Little League games. Louie was an avid hunter shooting boar, moose, duck and rarely missed a deer season.

He is survived by three of his children, Michell Chisham of Sonoma, California, Larry (Dawn) Dubrul of Greeley, Colorado and Lori (Bob) Fritz of Las Vegas, Nevada; 11 grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; two sisters, Peggy (Harry) Lovell of St. Clair Shores, Janet Sullivan (Marc Toncray) of Benton Harbor; two brothers, William Dubrul of Minnesota and Richard (Marilyn) Dubrul of Washington.

Louie was preceded in death by his wife, Louise just 16 months ago on August 26, 2016 after 58 years of marriage; one daughter, Denise Nickert on February 25, 2010; and one sister, Jackie in 1960.

A Memorial service will be held in the late spring.
