Lewis Leland Dandurand
(91) Born May 17, 1928 in Concordia, Kansas, son of Hector A. Dandurand and Nellie Marcelline Cote) Dndurand. Lewis died June 10, 2019 in Tucson, Arizona.

Preceded in death by his beloved wife Ileen. Survived by son, Donovan (Kim); daughters Rebecca, Kay Koll (Greg), Michelle Enos (Larry Johns), Sharon Leonn; six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Lewis attended grade and high school in Aurora, Kansas graduating H.S. in June 1946. Lewis served in the U.S. Army Air Corp 1946-49, stationed in the territory of Alaska. After an Honorable Discharge, Lewis made his way back to Concordia, Kansas where he married Ileen Fraser on February 20, 1954. All five children were born in Kansas between December 1954 and October 1962. The family moved to Portland, Oregon in 1964 and again to Tucson in 1971.

During his career Lewis held a variety of positions: sealing fuel tanks inside new B-52 wings for Boeing; as a welder on heavy earth moving equipment, and finally providing facility maintenance at the Arizona Air National Guard in Tucson, where he retired in 1990.

Lewis and Ileen enjoyed several years in retirement together as active members of the local Studebakers Drivers Club, attending out of state functions and indulging his passion of restoring Studebaker cars. Lewis continued his activity with the club after Ileen passed away in 2001, with support from his friends in the club. Throughout this time Lewis also served as usher at Most Holy Trinity Parish.

A Mass of Christian Burial at Most Holy Trinity Church will be held on Tuesday June 18, 2019 at 10:00am, followed by interment at Holy Hope Cemetery. Visitation will be held Monday June 17, 2019 from 4:00-6:00 pm at Abbey Funeral Chapel, 3435 N. 1st Ave., Tucson, Arizona.

I always enjoyed spending time with Lewis. He was a kind man of God and never forgot his roots. He had a wonderful smile which he shared frequently. Lewis and Ileen raised five good-hearted, hard working children. I love them all. Lewis loved his Studebakers and I enjoyed a tour of his workshop/garage he took me through. RIP, Lewis, reunited with sweet Ileen.
