Richard W. Duran, 69, of Georgetown, Texas, formerly of San Angelo, Texas, passed away on August 13, 2011 in Georgetown.

Richard was born on November 13, 1941 in Binghamton, New York to Joseph Mark and Dorothy May Dalrymple Duran. In 1961, he married Kathryn Anne Bulger in Frederick Maryland, who survives at home.

Other survivors include his five children, Michelle Goericke of Rockdale, TX, Richard J. Duran of Georgetown, Edward Duran of Austin, Stacey Duran of Austin, and Kari Duran of Carrollton, TX.. He also leaves behind his brothers, James D. Duran of Oakdale, N.Y. and William Duran of Oswego, N.Y., a sister Beverly Nestrick of Johnson City, N.Y., many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews. His parents and a brother, Joseph Duran, predeceased him.

Richard was a United States Army National Guard Veteran. He spent fifty years in the trucking industry, he worked with Gulf Coast Transport for a number of years and retired as owner/operator of R. D. Transportation.

He was a unique man on many levels. One never had to worry about where you stood with him. He demanded the same values and ethics from people just as
he gave to them.

Though direct in who he was, he was a loving, caring and honest man. He valued his family and made sure that they were taken care of. His children considered him to be brave, a great father, good cook, and excellent in his profession. His life experiences and wisdom held great value to his children, friends and those who may have been fortunate enough to know him.

The Graveside Service with Military Honors will be held at Our Lady of The Rosary Cemetery, Saturday, August 20th, 9:00AM at 330 Berry Lane in Georgetown, Texas.
