So sorry to hear and also sorry I was not in town for his services. He was a good guy. I remember when he got his diploma, how proud he was. Prayers for you and all the family.

Known Duane all my life being grown up in Island Pond. He was a good and kind person to everyone he met. Loved his family and friends. His devotion to the "Knights of Columbus" was outstanding I believe Duane has earned his Wings and is in good hands. My sympathy goes out to Carlene, and his family, my God Bless and take care of them.

Duane was a friend as well as my uncle. We play baseball and got in to the normal mischievous troubles when we were kids. We even worked together at Ethan Allen, and yes, he managed to make me laugh at work too. He was a kind, generous man. His wit, and his smile will be missed. He was so proud of his family. I will remember all of you in my thoughts.
