Chris Duckworth N. CHARLESTON - Donald Christopher Duckworth passed away on April 1, 2013, at MUSC after a valiant battle with lung cancer. He departed his life on this earth with his wife, Bonnie, whom he adored, at his side, along with many members of his family and friends. Chris was born in Baltimore, MD, on December 3, 1957, a son of Donald and Suzanne Duckworth. His family moved where his father's career took them. He lived in NC, GA, VA, FL, NJ, IL, OH, and Charleston, SC, where he attended Hanahan High School before the family moved to Newtown, Pennsylvania, where he graduated from Council Rock High School. He began his career as a highly respected welder at General Dynamics and continued his profession at Detyens Shipyard, Milcom Systems, and for the last fifteen years as Manufacturing and Logistics Manager at Rapid Deployment Systems. He was an active member of Riverbluff Church, loved jet skiing with his wife, golfing with friends and was the Lagrunta NASCAR League Commissioner. Chris is survived by his wife of 32 years, Bonnie Clinton Duckworth, their daughter, Charlotte Darnell Duckworth, of Charleston, SC, their son, Christopher Clinton Duckworth (Crystal), of Suffolk, VA, and his very special canine companion, Chloe. He is also survived by his mother, Suzanne Horn Duckworth, and his three siblings, Kim Duckworth, Michael Duckworth, and Rob Duckworth (Robin). He was predeceased by his father, Donald Duckworth. The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the staff at MUSC for the special care given to Chris and his family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Midland Park Community Ministries, 2427 Midland Park Road, North Charleston, SC 29406.
