Obituary

Dubuque, Theodore Julien Jr., M.D. died Saturday, June 30, 2018. Born in St. Louis December 8, 1927, he was the son of the late Theodore Sr. and Frances Dubuque. Dr. Dubuque was the beloved husband of Carol Stephens Dubuque for more than 60 years. He is survived by his children Sally Gordon (Fitz), Charles (Tina), Philip (Patricia), Paul (Lauren), and Louis Dubuque (Mary) and fourteen grandchildren - Sarah, Lauren, Charles, Grace, Elise, Hope, Claire, Caroline, Emily, Julia, Catherine, Anne, Teddy and Matthew. He is the brother of Frances Barrett (the late Robert), the late Margaret Butler (Wilbur), and the late Elise Murray (Eugene). Dr. Dubuque graduated from St. Louis University School of Medicine in 1952 and completed his surgical training at the University in 1957. He then served two years in the U.S. Army as Chief of Surgery at Ft. Benjamin Harrison Hospital in Indiana. After returning to St. Louis, he practiced surgery, primarily at St. Mary's, Cardinal Glennon and St. Louis University Hospitals. He was Professor of Clinical Surgery at St. Louis University School of Medicine and Director of the Department of Surgery at St. Mary's from 1962 to 1981. He was a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, Diplomate of the American Board of Surgery, a member of Alpha Omega Honor Medical Society and the Western Surgical Association as well as a member and past President of the St. Louis Surgical Society. Dr. Dubuque was also a past board member of the Catholic Medical Mission Board in New York and the American Association of the Order of Malta. Between 1986-7, he spent six months as a volunteer surgeon at H pital Sacré Coeur in Milot, Haiti and established the operating room there. The mission, called Project Crudem, included the hospital and was started by the Brothers of the Sacred Heart. When the Brothers could no longer support the hospital, Dr. Dubuque and his friend, St. Louisan Carlos Reese, took over management and financial responsibility by forming the charitable Crudem Foundation in 1993. The hospital has become a premier health care provider in Haiti, gradually expanding from an original six beds to more than 200. H pital Sacré Coeur was named one of the 100 Projects of the Holy Father for the Year of Charity, 1999 by Pope John Paul II. Dr. Dubuque was given the Servitor Pacis Award by the Mission of the Holy See to the United Nations. He received the Surgical Volunteerism Award by the American College of Surgeons, the Alumni Award for Service to Humankind by St. Louis University, the Peter Richard Kenrick Award by KenrickGlennon Seminary, and the Backer Award by St. Louis University High.
