Obituary

Mitchel Dupre passed away on September 6, 2021.

Mitch was born on June 14, 1932 to parents Wilfred & Erna Dupre. He grew up in Hugo/St Paul and went to Cretin Durham Hall.  After graduation, Mitch went into the army and fought in the Korean War. He was honorably discharged in November of 1954 and is a purple heart recipient. Mitch was married to Barbara (Bergstrom) who preceded him in death on April 4, 2018.

When he returned from the service, he started a career as a radio announcer at WCMP in Pine City.  They moved to Duluth where Mitch worked at KDLH TV and Barbara at Wells Fargo.   Mitch and Barb were inseparable - you would never see one without the other.  They truly had a fantastic marriage.  They also had many friends.  Mitch had a great sense of humor, a kind heart and a love for animals. Upon retirement, they moved back to Pine City to be close to family and friends.  They always greeted you with a smile and Mitch always had a joke to tell.

There will be a private funeral – we thank you for your prayers.
