I worked for Duane several years ago and am so sorry to hear of his passing. He was one of the smartest, kindest, most decent people I've had the pleasure of meeting during my career. My sincere condolences to his family.
I am a Reno family member (grand daughter of Torrey Reno, who was a younger brother of Duane's grandfather Frank A Reno). Though I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Duane, we briefly e-mailed each other in February 2011 when I was working on a Reno family history project. As I have learned, Duane was a brilliant man and he will be missed. My condolences to all.
I am a cousin to Duane's father, Duane H. Reno, whose father was Franklin Andrew Reno, my uncle. I am saddened to hear of Duane's death. My blessings are with you and your family. This is a great loss to the family.
I worked for Duane for many years. He was one of the smartest individuals I've ever met. May he rest in peace.
I am a retired San Francisco firefighter and enjoyed working with him on various labor problems. I last spoke Duane last year and will miss not having him and his knowledge to draw on.
He was a very nice person. He helped many people, of which I am one. Thankss Duane. Harry Brophy
Although we often sat on different sides of labor issues...Duane was always a gentleman and true professional.
He was a class act and will be missed!

We have a loving son. God bless you and thank You for all your love and support.
Duane was such a kind, thoughtful man, with a droll sense of humor, and a great union lawyer! I had tremendous respect and fondness for him as an attorney and a person. At least his suffering is over, and it seems he had a terrific live outside of the practice of law!! I will miss him dearly . . .
Such a decent caring man -
I am so sad to hear of Duane's passing. It was an honor to be his dental hygienist for a time at UCSF. His perseverance and grace in living each day will continue to be an inspiration for me. My Warmest Regards, Elena Ortega, RDH
