In Memorial

Stuart Duhl

Date of Death: April 28th, 2021
16 Iyar 5781


It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the loss of Stuart Duhl, 80, after a challenging battle with pancreatic cancer. Stuart was an amazing family man who will be missed by many. Stuart was an admired lawyer and mentor who served for many years on both the Illinois and National Conference of Bar Examiners and also taught tax law and business law in the evenings. He was an avid golfer, baseball player (in his youth), and sports fan (Go Cubs go! Let’s go ‘Cats!). Nothing brought “Papa Stuart” more joy, though, than spending time with his family and grandchildren, hearing about their many activities, playing games with them, and telling his magical stories.

Stuart is survived by his loving wife Elaine (née Distenfield), his sons Gregory (Jaclyn Millner) Duhl and Joshua (Linda) Duhl, his grandkids Gabe and Elly Millner and Leo, William, and Caleb Duhl, brother Michael (Judith) Duhl and sister Anita (Howard) Glicken, sister-in-law Davida (Richard) Nelson and brother-in-law Ira (Linda) Distenfield. He was preceded in death by his parents Samuel and Gertrude Duhl.

Stuart was a very kind, gentle soul who loved his family, friends, career and golf. He was best friends with my parents Joel & Tyra Chemers. May his memories be with your family for an eternity.

Papa Joel and Stuart were really good friends. Nani Tyra and Elaine were really good friends. Our family’s hearts go out to Elaine and the Duhl Family for their loss.
Stuart was super smart, super dry humor, a super friend, a super golf partner, and a super lawyer. We will miss him very much.
Love, The Chemers
