Obituary

Doran Wayne Pence, age 84, of Albia, formerly of Bloomfield, passed away on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 at UnityPoint Health - Iowa Methodist Medical Center. He was born on May 23, 1935 in Bloomfield to Rayburn Burton and Lucile Velma (Pilcher) Pence.

Doran was a 1953 graduate of Bloomfield High School, where he was a proud member of the football team. He served with the United States Army with the 11th Armored Calvary and was stationed in Germany. He married Carol Joyce Pence on April 10, 1954 at the Bloomfield Christian Church, and they were blessed with two sons, Loren and Chad.

He worked for Barkers, Burdman Autoparts, and then became an owner of Bimco, until his retirement in 2004. He also farmed the family farm for several years. He enjoyed traveling, attending the 11th Armored Calvary reunions, attending the Pence Henkenius Rupe Fourth of July Celebrations, and especially enjoyed attending his children and grandchildren's activities. He had been active in the Bloomfield Development Corporation, former member of the Bloomfiled Jaycee Club, and a member of the American Legion Reed Whisler Post No. 78. Doran was an avid Iowa Hawkeye and St. Louis Cardinal fan.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Rayburn and Lucile Pence; sister, Donna Dunlavy, brother, Dennis Pence, and sister-in-law, Debbie Pence.

Joyce, Loren, Chad & families,
I was saddened to hear of Doran's passing. So many memories of Doran. One memory is all the candy that Doran and Joyce made at Christmas. I had always heard of all of this candy but was in total awe when I was over one afternoon and walked through the kitchen. Thank you for being the best neighbors when I lived in the apartment house and for being the best neighbors for Grandpa and Grandma for many years. Wishing you peace and comfort during this difficult time.

With much love and hugs,
April Gruver (Barnett)
