Duane loved spending time with his family, friends, and neighbors. He enjoyed hosting a daily coffee group at his home. Duane was very proud of his life-long career as a sales manager for 3M Company. After retirement, he and his late wife, Georgie, spent many winters in their favorite climate on the California coast. He was an avid fisherman and hunter, whose passion he passed on to his son and grandsons. He was a dog lover!
