Duane was special man who's quiet smile would light up the room. He touched the lives of many and will be forever loved and remembered.

My deepest sympathy to Margie and the O'Conner family. Having just reunited with Duane last year, 51 years after graduating from St. John's Prep together reinforced what a wonderful guy he was. May God bless all of you and enjoy the memories you share in your love of this good man.

IT WAS WITH GREAT SADNESS THAT I HEARD
ABOUT MY DEAR FIEND DUANE.
I KNEW HIM AND WORKED WITH HIM FOR TWENTY
PLUS YEARS. A PLEASURE TO BE WITH WORKING
OR FISHING. MY SYMPATHY TO HIS FAMILY.
REGRET THAT I CAN'T BE THERE TO EXPRESS
MY PERSONAL THOUGHTS.
