Charlie Glen Dupree, DVM passed away on Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at the Grace Home in Shreveport at the age of 56 after a two year battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife Charmaine of St. Francisville, two sons, Justin and Seth of Thibodeaux. His mother, Charline Dupree of Bossier City, two brothers, Gary and wife Ginger of Bossier City and Greg and wife Jonna of Clarence and numerous nieces and nephews. He leaves a host of friends who shared his love for his homeopathic veterinary profession and lifestyle. He was preceded in death by his father, Reual C. Dupree, Jr. and grandparents.

To his friends, the family expresses sincere gratitude for the love, prayers, concern and ministry shown during the time of Glen's illness. Glen lived his life with dignity and taught others by his example that life cannot be measured by wealth or worldly success. Rather, he taught by example that a truly successful life is to appreciate the wonder of God's plan for His creation in our relationship with others, in the beauty of nature and in the simplicity of faith. It is the fervent hope of family members that we can continue this legacy that Glen is leaving to everyone who ministered so lovingly to him during his battle with cancer.

At Glen's request, his memorial service will be held in the church of his childhood, First Baptist Church, Coushatta, Louisiana on Saturday, March 2, 2013 at 2:00 P.M.
