  1. I am saddened to learn of the loss of Duane. Although years have passed by I remember Duane being in our class of ’68 and always seemed to have a casual air about himself and good friends surrounding him. Know that Duane, Arlene and his children will be in my thoughts and prayers in the days and weeks to come.

  2. Arlene, I wish you strength at this very sad time. Your husband was a sweet and kind man.

  3. Sorry to hear about Duane. He was a very nice person and fun to be around. Sorry for your loss.
