He loved to spend hours in the garage tinkering on lawnmowers amongst other items he could get his hands on and going to Menards. Duane was passionate about organizing and labeling everything. He was an avid hunter but, most of all, he was a devoted family man who was delighted in being their chauffer for family trips to Disney, Seattle, and Pennsylvania. Duane and Suzanne also traveled to London and Paris. He was an inspiration to his family and friends and his grandchildren were his world.
He will be dearly missed by his loving wife, Suzanne; his children Jodi (Daniel) Thompson and Brandon (Lisa) Wallace; his grandchildren, Chad Thompson, Brett Thompson, his “Sunshine” Britney (Kennedy) Thompson and his “Angel” Faith Wallace; his great grandchildren, Myracle, Giovanni and Josiah Thompson and his siblings, Meredith Wallace, Marlene Tancrede and David (Carol) Wallace, and many many family members.
