Duane was a 1956 graduate of Revere High School. He was a member of the former Revere Community Church.
He was a 30 year employee of Ball-Volvo in Kahoka.
Duane enjoyed hunting and fishing and tinkering with things. Almost as much as hunting, he enjoyed driving around looking for deer and taking pictures of them. He enjoyed people and loved going around town in his golf cart checking on what the news was, seeing what was going on, often spending many hours watching the progress of new construction. He enjoyed telling stories, teasing, joking and being ornery with his family, friends and co-workers.
He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. He rarely missed any of his children's and grandchildren's sports and other activities. They were who he lived for. He was blessed in his life with two sets of family, all of whom were the same in his eyes. A special thanks goes to the staff of Blessing Hospital who treated the entire family with love and caring.
Funeral services were held Wednesday, February 18, 2015 at 10 a.m. at Wilson Funeral Home in Kahoka with Mr. Jared McAfee officiating. Burial followed in the Revere Cemetery.
