Morris Paul Duhon

August 6, 1938 - March 26, 2023

Morris Paul Duhon, 84, of Lake Charles, Louisiana, passed away on Sunday, March 26, 2023, surrounded by his loving family.

Morris was born in Kaplan, Louisiana, on August 6, 1938, and moved to Beaumont with his family as a child. He was a 1957 graduate of French High School and upon graduation, Morris joined the United States Marine Corps. He served in the USMC for four years and remained a proud Marine throughout his life. After he returned from active duty, in 1960, Morris married the “girl across the street”, Trudy Roblow. Morris and Trudy lived in Beaumont until 1976 and then relocated to Orange, Texas. After his discharge from the Marines, Morris went back to work for Spencer Chemical which later became Gulf Chemical and then Chevron/Phillips. He loved his job and was a vital component for multiple expansions at that polyethylene facility-serving projects that took him all over the world- and after 40 years he retired as the HDPE Operations Superintendent.

Morris loved to hunt, fish, travel, and he loved hosting crawfish boils for his family and friends. In February 2014, Morris married Jeanne LaCour Williams Duhon. They resided in Lake Charles, enjoyed traveling together, attending Mardi Gras Balls, dinner with friends, and NCAA football games.

Morris is preceded in death by his wife of 48 years, Trudy; parents, Felix and Zoe Broussard Duhon; and siblings, Felix Duhon, Patty Rabb, and Fritz Duhon. Morris is survived by his loving wife, Jeanne LaCour Duhon; three daughters, Paula and Doug McCain of Lake Charles, Louisiana; and Jaliene and Les Holmes of Orange; and Stephanie Williams of Lake Charles, Louisiana; and a son, Darren and Kelly Williams of Houston; seven grandchildren, Mason McCain and his wife, Lauren; Monique Reason and her husband, Cody, of Chattanooga, Tennessee; Haley and Cameron Mauldin of Bridge City; Todd and Sharon Glaze of Bridge City; Derek Glaze of Deerfield Beach, Florida; and Ben and Max Williams of Houston.

Morris has ten great-grandchildren, Garrett Worthy, Kamrie Worthy, and twins, Jacob and Jordan Worthy; Ava Grace McCain and Luke Maverick McCain; Mark Fisher Reason, Calvin Paul Reason, and Archie Ray Reason and Carter James Glaze. Also surviving him, nieces that he helped raise, Cindy Carpenter of Beaumont and Jan Sims of Frisco, as well as numerous other nieces and nephews.

    Morris was older, bigger, and tougher then most kids in the neighborhood. Great athlete, good personality, and very popular. I’ll miss reading his religious articles on FB. My prayers for all his family. Just a few of our neighborhood still around. Morris we all thought a lot of you old friend.
