    I was a close friend of Duanes until we lost touch. I moved back to AZ and was trying to look him up. He passed away too soon.

  • Duane and I hung out together a lot during our Junior and Senior years at Chandler High School. It’s hard when I read that he was just 80 miles from where I lived at the time of his death. Sure wish I would have known that. I would have liked to see him again and reminisce.
