Duane Brock Deming, 66, of Federal Way, died of cancer on December, 17, 2013.
Born in Aberdeen in 1947 to Forest and Golda Deming, Duane grew up in Mt. Vernon and graduated from the U of W. He went on to work at a number of jobs over the years. He fought forest fires, planted trees, refined precious metals and even served a stint as an English teacher. After building his first house with only hand tools, Duane took up woodworking in his later years and became an accomplished woodworker. He was an avid runner and completed 6 Ironman triathlons, 3 in Hawaii, as well as numerous shorter races. He loved nature, especially Utah's Red Rock areas and traveling the world with his wife.
Survivors include his wife, Nancy Bruce, his son Blake Deming (Heather Amburgy), daughter Alicia Erickson (Greg) and his granddaughters, Annika and Ava Erickson; and grandsons, August and Forest Deming.
We will forever miss having him in our lives.
Memorial contributions may be made to Fred Hutch, your favorite environmental organization or other
