Duane the most roly-poly beautiful baby boy who through many ups and downs grew up to be a beautiful kind person to everyone he knows and meets. Many times (perhaps)some strangers not a good thing-but anyway. Mom’s constant companion, until in his "terrible 2’s", when along comes his sister Diana.
He exited school too young, followed by a short period in the Army. He later found his calling, excellent driving skills on his motorcycle and 18-wheeler through ice and snow, city traffic, mountain passes, and would still help others during family crisis. He will be so missed.
Duane rarely missed church service on Sunday morning. He ushered with enthusiasm and was a willing volunteer.
He was loved by all who really knew him, especially by his Mom and Sister Diana. However he will now be with his Heavenly Father, his Dad Allen and baby sister Deborah.
He is survived by his mom Mary, sister Diana, aunt Lajaunda and her son Chris, cousins Ted, Kathy, Jennifer, his daughter Melissa and her four children; grand-daughters Hayley and Felicity, grandsons Austin and Cameron; other cousins Ricky, Blake, Matt and a very special friend Sheika, who he thought of as a daughter.
