Duane enjoyed life and he loved his family. He enjoyed fishing and artwork. Hanging around with his nieces and nephews is what he enjoyed the most. Staying close to family and friends is where he liked to be. Duane touched many lives over the years and will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.

I'm so sorry we can't be there but all the family is in our thoughts and prayers. may God wrap his arms around each of you and give comfort to all.
