To the Family of Colonel George Duckworth -

My father Howard R. Turner and George Duckworth were good friends, having grown up in Shelburn, IN together and both serving in WWII - they were separated by about 8 years in age. My father spoke of Colonel Duckworth often as did my mother Euleta Slover Turner. Their admiration for him personally and his service was obvious - as a superior human being, as a true Patriot an American hero, and as a personal friend. I never met Colonel Duckworth but did speak to him a few times since my father's passing in 2009. I know his wife passed way not too long ago; I spoke to her also as I remember. I sent him the Shelburn Old Fashioned Days festival programs a couple of times each June - having sent this last in June 2013 and speaking to him to confirm he received. He was always pleasant for me to speak with, and he asked me of my service as a Navy officer in the DC area. Colonel Duckworth knew Washington, DC well - we both served at Ft. Belvoir, though decades apart. I have briefly worked at the White House; Colonel Duckworth was assigned at the White House I believe. He was a distinguished senior military officer and combat veteran; very few have served this nation so well and completely. I have no doubt he has his reward with the Lord.

I called his cell on 15 April; it was disconnected. I then searched this site and found he passed last August. I last spoke to him about July 2013.

I offer my sincere condolences to the family. Folks like Colonel Duckworth were always few and far between, and now they are nearly impossible to find. God bless.

Uncle George was an amazing, brilliant man. He and Aunt Fern were perfect partners. They were a living history of the United States. They served valiantly, and remembered every detail. Uncle George always greeted me with a kiss and a hug. I am so proud to have had him for an uncle, and to have heard him tell of his personal story . He will be cherished. David and Hal, may you be comforted at this time. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Love, Patsy McGee
