Dear Ones,
I will never forget the first time I met your dad...I was 18 and he gave me a big bear hug. From that day on (and I'll admit I am 56 now)...he always gave me a welcoming hug and made me feel like I was a real member of the family...and I can hear his voice saying, "Hey, beautiful, come here and give me a hug!" Of course I thought I was the only one he said that to. His care for me was never doubted. I will miss those hugs.
I can see my boys playing pool in the old house with him...and him still playing pool in Barbara's house many years later. Or how about his garden in the backyard and all those volleyball games back there, too! Those were good times...times I will always remember...including the naps his took on Gary's mom and dad's bed. I loved your dad and will miss him. To me he was truly "Uncle Duane." His light lives on in all of us.

Hi you guys, this is such a beautiful tribute to your dad. I hate that an obituary is how we learn all the cool stuff about with the wonderful people who leave us behind. He was one cool dude - y'all were lucky to know him. Barbara, I know that you were the best daughter he could have ever hoped for. See you soon, Joyce

I am truely blessing to have been able to share his last days with him.. He was very much a officer and a gentlmen. The stories he shared with me. I'll never forget. I loved as a grandpa. I was his personal sitter. First we were employer and employee, then we became friends after a while we became family. He spent time with my son Kedwin Duncan (K.D) daughter Rosemarie Duncan (Marie) my husband Alfred Estes (Alexsander) for some reason Mr.Braun (Poppa) always called. Even De`Marcus Estes (Marmar)Thats is our baby boy. He looked forward to the visit with the baby. A week before Poppa passed he asked to see "Marmar". I was going to bring him that Tuesday But he didnt make it he passed that Monday. Poppa I love you with all my heart. You will be missed. I love you..

I offer my condolences for the loss of your wonderful father. I am sure you were proud of him, and he was proud of you all. He had a devoted family by his side. God bless you all.
