Mr. Duncan was born on Dec. 14, 1947, in Gadsden. He graduated from Etowah High school in 1966 and then continued his education at Gadsden State Community College. Larry served in the United States Army and was a veteran of the Vietnam War. After serving his country, he was employed by Goodyear Tire & Rubber and later retired with 29 years service. Larry Duncan was known as "Superman" by his family, because he always went above and beyond the call of duty. He was such a selfless man, an avid lover of everyone, and a huge Alabama football fan.
