Thomas Lee Duell, Sr. (Tom)
Thomas Lee Duell Sr (Tom) caught his last flight on July 14, 2022. His final destination is the best place ever where we know he was greeted with open arms. His pain has ended and he can now rest comfortably, forever.
Tom was born in Cincinnati OH on August 3, 1939. After flying for the Air Force in Vietnam, he was a commercial pilot until he retired in the late 90’s. He transitioned seamlessly into his new role as pro traveler, world-class grandpa and skilled nap taker. Over the years he and Lois Bellman Duell provided a consistent example of what an enduring, respectful marriage is and how a parent’s job never ends, it just changes.
Tom was proceeded in death by his parents and brothers, and is survived by his spouse (Lois), his children (Tom Jr, Jan, David, Chris, and Chuck) and their spouses, along with eleven grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held at 1:00pm, Monday, August 1, 2022 at Mary Immaculate Catholic Church, 2800 Valwood Pkwy, Farmers Branch, TX 75234
