    As an outsider who loves the passion of the Timbers Army, it is a real shame to lose someone who clearly exhibited such a love for his team… Best of luck to his family and the family of the Timbers Army :)

    He had lots of friends in Margurg Germany, where he recieved a Masters Degree, that will be saddened by his loss.

    I went to high school with Duane & read about his passing in the local paper. I am totally saddened by this news. Although it had been many years since I had seen or spoke to him, he was a great guy. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

    Wow! I can’t believe this news. I went to school from kindergarten on up… I’m crushed right now. So sorry to hear this… I send my love to George and Linda, who were his parents and my dear friends as well. It seems like only yesterday, that I rode my bike from my grandma’s house up the hill on Oak Tree Ln to Duane’s house to play with GI Joe and Masters of the universe guys and play down at the creek. Sorry to see you go old friend. So sorry. :(
