A 1986 Graduate of Mendon-Union High School, Duane was employed 

at Wright State University, Dayton, in the Maintenance Department. 


Duane always enjoyed watching and following his favorite sports teams, 

the Cleveland Indians and Browns, and of course the mighty Ohio State 

Buckeyes!!!!  His true favorite thing to do for relaxation time was to be 

watching Old Western movies.


He immensely enjoyed getting together with his close group of “buddies”. 

They shared lots of fun times and adventures together.  He loved them all. 

Thanks, guys, for sharing Duane’s life, as true friends to him.


Keeping up on all his Nieces & Nephews sports and activities through the 

years was one of his favorite pastimes.  Duane was a very proud Uncle and 

Great-Uncle, and loved all his Nieces & Nephews greatly.
