Duane was born April 14, 1956 and went to his eternal home on April 26, 2005.
For Duane, journalism was a fierce dedication to uncovering the truth - even in the riskiest of stories. Journalism became the catalyst for Duane's message of hope. Cancer research was that hope. He shared his story with Channel 12 viewers, and affirmed his belief that cancer would one day be manageable: "I may not see the victory, but I am proud to be part of the fight."
Duane's unparalleled spirit and faith in God empowered him - "Fear thou not; for I am with thee, be not dismayed, for I am thy God." Isaiah 41:10
Duane's countless stories and hours of laughter redefined humor. Love encompassed Duane's relationships and his love for Teri touched us all.
