Not sure what to say?

My deepest sympathy to the Kalina Family. I worked at Bethlehem Steel and worked in the same building as Duke for many years. Patty, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

My deepest sympathies for your family. God bless.

My sympathies to Pat and children, as well as Duke's entire family. It was an honor to know Duke. He added sunshine and smiles in the lives of all who knew him. I am especially fond of the many years I worked alongside him in the Camelot YABA Bowling Program. He will be missed by so many. Prayers for you and your family during this time. Glenna (Rossa) Rivkin formerly of Hobart, IN.

My thoughts are with you all. Mr. Kalina was a wonderful man and he was always so nice to me when I would come over to your house during and post high school. I always felt so welcome and even got to tag along on bowling night a few times.

Our deepest sympathies.

We will miss you coming into the bank and saving those 2's and halves, you were always so kind and friendly to all of us, God Bless Your Family

Chris and Family, My thoughts and Prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

Uncle Duke you will be greatly missed by our family. All of your nieces and nephews will always remember all the 4th of July get togethers and playing softball. I remember being little and being scared of your big booming voice but you were just a big teddy bear. Sorry I couldn't be there to say good bye. May you rest in peace. Love your niece Grace
