Our beloved husband, father and grandfather passed away on July 20, 2014. He has joined his parents, Ted and Zola, two brothers, Blaine and Ronald, grandson, Tyler, and great grandson, Jaden.
He married Virginia Palmer in 1955 and was later sealed to his eternal sweetheart in the Salt Lake Temple.
Duane was a Korean War Veteran. He attended BYU for three years. He interned at St. Benedicts Hospital in Oregon and received an ASCP Degree. His work took him to Monticello, UT and Hawthorne, NV.
Moving back to Utah, he raised his family and returned to the job he loved the most, the oil fields, which took him to the western states and Alaska.
He retired at 67 years and spent the rest of his time farming and enjoying his family. Throughout his life, Duane served faithfully in his church callings.
He is survived by his wife, Virginia and their six children: Mark (Jill), Diana, Helen Robertson, Mitchell (Laura), Jon, Heidi (Michael) Hansen. They have 23 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.
Funeral services were held at noon on Friday, August 1, 2014 at the Spanish Fork Stake Center, 1006 East 200 South. A viewing will be held prior at 10 a.m.
