Duane was such a great friend and neighbor. I can still see us together, across the fence, talking, swapping stories and laughing. Our lives will always be somewhat empty without him in the world. We miss him greatly.

Duane was an amazing man. He was a very hard worker, a great friend, and was always smiling. He absolutely loved life itself. He loved going to his houses in Florida and Sandusky, he loved talking about cars, houses, and the stock market. But most of all, he loved talking about Sharon, Jackie, Tom, and his grandkids often, and always had a huge smile on his face when he did.
We lost an amazing person. He will truly me missed. I will never forget him.
Please know that Duane is in a much better place now with God. He is happy and without pain or suffering. We will see him again one day.
I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I pray that God gives you and your family the strength to get through this together.
If there is anything at all that you need, please don’t hesitate to ask.
May God bless you and your family!!
