When I was a kid, I used to wait for Uncle Duane to drive his semi past our place and beep his horn. I'd like to think he is the reason why I ended up in road construction driving trucks and equipment during the summer months and 18-wheelers during the winter months.
He was the nicest man! My mom thought so too. He always treated our family with kindness. He remains tops on my list of favorite uncles. I will miss him. So sorry for your loss, Aunt Dorothy and Cousins.
