Robert (Bob) Duron, Jr., was born on August 2, 1924 in Dallas, Texas to Robert Duron and Hattie Kopecky. He was the youngest of three and graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School. After graduation and a short time working for Baker Brothers, Bob was drafted into the US Army Air Forces. Upon honorable discharge, he went to work for Texas Instruments where he was employed for 37 years until retirement.

Bob loved Czech music and was a founding member of the Dallas Czech Concert Orchestra as well as a member of Charlie Adamcik's Polka Tones. He was very proud of his Czech heritage and took pride in watching his son and daughters play along with him as they grew up. He was also an avid sports fan and spent endless hours spoiling and playing with his grandchildren.

Bob passed away on August 5, 2017 and was preceded in death by his parents, 2 sisters (Mary and Annie), and a grandson (Bubba). He is survived by his wife, Olga, his daughters, Barbara (Johnny) and Mary Ann (Rick), and his son, Bobby (Stefanie). He had six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren that were his pride and joy.

The family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to the nursing staff and caregivers at C.C. Young who were like family during his stay over the past year. We are forever grateful for the compassion and love they showed to him. To everyone there, he says "I'm okay."
