I knew Duane since the early part of the 70's. We grew up in the same neighborhood and he was one of the guys that "hung out on the corner" with the rest of us. Somehow Duane was one of the group I seemed to run into from time to time and although it had been many years in between each run in, he always knew who I was. Now I'm talking about seeing him at my first Day on The Green concert I went to. How do you run across someone in over 50,000 people but there he was, his wonderful smile and all! Or the next time it was at a Giants Game!! I just happened to look down at the walkway just as Duane was strolling by, I yelled "Duane" and he turns and smiles and yells back "Jeana" and waves. I remember thinking how COOL it was that after all that time had passed ,he still remembered me. I am so sorry for your loss. I have to say FTD one last time for you Duane! God Bless

My condolences go out to Freda and the family. I met him at work and played fast pitch with him and against him for many years. He could come across a bit hard to some but inside he had such a big heart. You knew where you stood with him. A life cut short but rest assured, DD did not get cheated when it came to having a good time. I will miss him very much.
