Tony, Jenny, Scott & families,

Uncle Duane was a joy to see and listen to. He always had the best jokes and stories. I will miss sitting and discussing woodworking and fishing with him. He will be missed greatly by all of my family.

Uncle Duane. What sweet words for a sweet, loving, humorous and talented man. Duane and Phyllis were the most endearing and enduring couple. It is comforting to know they are back together in the best of places. 13 March 2012 is their first Anniversary in Heaven.

I will always remember listening to Duane talk about his fishing trips. If I asked him about any past or upcoming fishing trips; he was quick to fill me in.

Duane was always an example for me to look up to, and to take counsel from. He lived a full life as a husband, a father, an uncle, as a patriot. His hand-made gifts will last for generations. I will forever cherish his wit and wisdom. I am blessed to have had him as my uncle.
