Duane was a classmate at Battle Ground Jr. and Sr. High School. He and his wife, Susan, and I became really good friends later on.

After law school, I was called to the ministry. Before leaving San Diego for Wyoming to minister there, I flew...

I had the pleasure of being Duane’s hair stylist. What I loved the most was hearing his stories of being a veteran, and learning exactly what it means to be a veteran. An incredible unyielding love of ones country. I now have a better understanding and respect for those that have served. Thank you Duane for your kindness, and knowledge. You will be missed.
