Robert Jones DuBois Jr.
age 48 of Big Lake and formerly Buffalo, passed away on May 1, 2021 at his home surrounded by his family.
Robert was born the son of Robert DuBois Sr. and Holly Effner on March 24, 1973 in Kingston, NY.
Robert moved to Minnesota and loved the cold weather here. He could be found outside during the winter wearing only two sweatshirts, hat and scarf and still would complain that he was hot.
He was a hard worker and worked many years for Marksman Metals in St. Michael. Robert’s hard work there was respected and was appreciated by everyone else. The company showed their appreciation to him in how well he was treated when he got sick.
For enjoyment Robert loved hunting, fishing, his toys and candy. But his true love came from the time spent with his wife and family. He was always ready for a party and the memories made will always be treasured.
Robert is survived by his wife, Julie; daughter, Candice DuBois; sons, Seth and Parris DuBois; 3 grandchildren; parents, Robert Sr. & Holly DuBois; brothers, Robert Dugan, Robert B. DuBois and William DuBois; sister, Vanessa DuBois; also many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Officiating will be Pastor Ryan Clark of St. John’s Ev. Lutheran Church of Buffalo, MN.
