LEXINGTON - Lamoine D. Duis, 61, of Lexington died Monday, April 8, 2013, at his home in Lexington, following a courageous fight with cancer.

Services will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday at Reynolds-Love Funeral Chapel in Lexington, with the Rev. Caroline Vickery officiating. Burial will be at 2 p.m. in the Zion Lutheran Cemetery near Gothenburg.

There will be no visitation.

Mr. Duis was born June 17, 1951, in Gothenburg to George and Leona (Sommer) Duis.

Survivors of the immediate family include two sons and a daughter-in-law, Andrew and Wendy Duis of Grand Island and Shane Duis of Gothenburg.

Also surviving are five grandchildren, Carter, Bryce and Andrea Duis of Grand Island, Judd Duis of Cozad, and, Justin Duis of Fort Collins, Colo.

He attended school at Gothenburg. Lamoine was united in marriage to Linda Defruiter on April 1, 1967, in Gothenburg. Two sons were blessed to this marriage; Andrew and Shane. The couple later divorced.

Lamoine worked for Sperry New Holland after moving to Lexington in the mid 1970's. He attended auctioneer school in Billings, Montana in 1977. He later worked for the Kugler Family and then 25 years at Designer Craft Woodworking for Steve Atwood. His health forced him to retire three years ago.

He was a member of Zion Lutheran Church in Gothenburg. Lamoine loved riding his Harley Davidson, woodworking, fishing, hunting and going to the sale barn. His greatest joys in life were times spent with his sons and grandchildren.

Lamoine was preceded in death by his parents and three brothers, Mearle, Kermit and Clifford.

Memorials are suggested to the Family for later designation.
