Duane had a great sense of humour and was known for his jokes and playful spirit. He had a knack for numbers and electronics, genealogy and research, and played and watched many sports his whole life. He loved the Swede Club, cribbage, walking, music, and sitting on his back deck in the sun with a beer. A generous man of few words, known for his great hugs and smile. Duane was dearly loved and will be missed by his three children, Deron, Gretchen (Brian), and Eric (Catherine).

As well as five great grandchildren: Jack and Eva, Liam, Emerson and Anna- most in Nova Scotia (plus New Brunswick and Alberta). Duane will be greatly missed by his big brother, David (Alice), 'his hero', of Old Saybrook, as well as by David's family. He loved and was loved by his Connecticut family: Ruth Morin, of Chester, and her children: Rose (Will), Bob (Jen), and Sheri (Patrick), along with their families.There will be a 'Celebration of Duane's Life' on Thursday, June 14, at his home in Centerbrook, at 2 pm, followed by burial at the Centerbrook Cemetery at 3 pm.
