Donations may be made to the J.R. Duran Diabetes Memorial Fund, in care of Bank of the West, located at 125 N. Commercial St., Trinidad, Colo. Denver Rocky Mountain News - November 4, 2005 - If there's one thing that Joe Raymond Duran's family has learned about him after his death, it's this: Everyone has a story to tell about the good deeds done by the well-liked Trinidad businessman and farmer known as J.R. Mr. Duran, who started Duran Oil Co. and the J.R.'s Fuel Stop chain, died Oct. 1 at the age of 75. Since his death, his friends have offered his four children stories of his deeds - many of which they had never heard about before. "I always knew I had a wonderful dad, but I never knew there were so many people who thought so, too," said Mr. Duran's daughter Corrine Duran-Abeyta, of Littleton. Daughter Bernadette Duran, of Trinidad, remembers a story in which her father came upon two immigrants who were sleeping under a tractor at his farm and decided to wake them. The two strangers asked Mr. Duran if he had any work for them on the acreage where he grew hay, but he didn't immediately respond to their request. Instead, he went to his home, asked his wife, Maria, to prepare some food for the men and gathered up some of his old clothes. He fed the men, clothed them and gave them work loading bales of hay onto trucks because, as Bernadette Duran put it, "Dad was a caring man." Mr. Duran was born into a tight- knit family and raised in the modest agricultural community of El Ojito, located about 15 miles east of Trinidad. The oldest of six children, Mr. Duran stayed in the community until he enlisted in the U.S. Army after high school to serve in the Korean War. He used to share his war memories, but his children said that one in which he nearly died amid enemy gunfire has always stood out. Mr. Duran was behind the wheel of a jeep when he and his two passengers came under heavy enemy gunfire. The two others were killed, and the enemy soldiers assumed that Mr. Duran also would die from a bullet that pierced his face and exited through the side of his head. Once the enemy soldiers were gone, Mr. Duran crawled through a field until he was able to get help from another soldier, who sent him to the home of a woman who cared for him. He eventually was awarded a Bronze Star for bravery, a Bronze Camp Star, Korean Service Medal, Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citation and a Purple Heart. After the war, he moved back to southern Colorado, where he worked for a few different companies before landing a job with the company now known as Conoco. He stayed with that company for nearly two decades until 1977 when he decided to start Duran Oil Co., which has grown to include 185 employees in nine cities around Colorado, New Mexico and Oklahoma. In 2001, Mr. Duran started J.R's Fuel Stop, which has 14 locations in Del Norte, Monte Vista, Pueblo, Salida, Springfield, Trinidad, New Mexico and Oklahoma. Even after he retired a few years ago, he still went into his Duran Oil Co. office almost every day to do work or to joke and socialize with his employees. He'd do so as often as he could, even during the days when dialysis treatments made him weak, as well as during his recuperation from a kidney transplant. The consummate joker kept up his wisecracks up until the end, telling doctors that he had to "go home from the hospital because he had to finish what he started yesterday," Duran-Abeyta said. When asked what he had started, he replied, "Nothing." The thought of his jokes makes his children smile. "He was an amazing man," Duran-Abeyta said. Mr. Duran was preceded in death by his wife, Maria. In addition to Corrine and Bernadette, he is survived by a son, Ray Duran, of Trinidad; a daughter, Veronica Rivera, of Pueblo; 11 grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.

Mr. Duran was born into a tight- knit family and raised in the modest agricultural community of El Ojito, located about 15 miles east of Trinidad. The oldest of six children, Mr. Duran stayed in the community until he enlisted in the U.S. Army after high school to serve in the Korean War. He used to share his war memories, but his children said that one in which he nearly died amid enemy gunfire has always stood out. Mr. Duran was behind the wheel of a jeep when he and his two passengers came under heavy enemy gunfire. The two others were killed, and the enemy soldiers assumed that Mr. Duran also would die from a bullet that pierced his face and exited through the side of his head. Once the enemy soldiers were gone, Mr. Duran crawled through a field until he was able to get help from another soldier, who sent him to the home of a woman who cared for him. He eventually was awarded a Bronze Star for bravery, a Bronze Camp Star, Korean Service Medal, Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citation and a Purple Heart. After the war, he moved back to southern Colorado, where he worked for a few different companies before landing a job with the company now known as Conoco. He stayed with that company for nearly two decades until 1977 when he decided to start Duran Oil Co., which has grown to include 185 employees in nine cities around Colorado, New Mexico and Oklahoma. In 2001, Mr. Duran started J.R's Fuel Stop, which has 14 locations in Del Norte, Monte Vista, Pueblo, Salida, Springfield, Trinidad, New Mexico and Oklahoma. Even after he retired a few years ago, he still went into his Duran Oil Co. office almost every day to do work or to joke and socialize with his employees. He'd do so as often as he could, even during the days when dialysis treatments made him weak, as well as during his recuperation from a kidney transplant. The consummate joker kept up his wisecracks up until the end, telling doctors that he had to "go home from the hospital because he had to finish what he started yesterday," Duran-Abeyta said. When asked what he had started, he replied, "Nothing." The thought of his jokes makes his children smile. "He was an amazing man," Duran-Abeyta said. Mr. Duran was preceded in death by his wife, Maria. In addition to Corrine and Bernadette, he is survived by a son, Ray Duran, of Trinidad; a daughter, Veronica Rivera, of Pueblo; 11 grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
