Otis Gene Duhon, 71, of Orange, passed away July 21, at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Beaumont.

Born in Orange, Oct. 25, 1942, he was the son of Otha Duhon and Lois (Sarver) Duhon. Otis served in the U. S. Air Force from 1961-1968 and was an electrical technician for every Apollo Mission to the moon. He then became an air conditioning service man and felt that keeping people cool in Southeast Texas was just as important as his work for the Apollo Missions. Otis also loved to fish and hunt. He was loved by all his family and his many friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Otha Duhon; brother, Joe A. Duhon; and his son, Randy Duhon.

He is survived by his wife of 36 years, Maureen Moak Duhon of Orange, his mother, Lois Duhon of Beaumont; son Richard Duhon of Hartburg; sisters, Gloria Graves of Beaumont, Juanita McDonald of Baytown, and Patricia Lewallen of Highlands; and his aunt Juanita Toronjo of Orange.

Cremation will be under the direction of Claybar Haven of Rest.
