So sorry to hear this sad news. Haven’t seen Trent in decades but remember him from grade school and high school. He was always nice and wearing a smile. Prayers to the Smith family.

Trent was one of the most laid back, unflappable people I ever met. I was beyond words when hearing of this terrible tragedy. I'm praying for peace and comfort for Trent's family, Troy and Tad's families, and everyone who knew and loved him. RIP Duke.

Such a great guy. Hadn’t seen him in decades, I can still see his long hair and glasses with that smile he always had. He will be truly missed. Prayers to all the family. So sorry for your loss.

It is important for me to say something, though words won’t change the hurt...... We had fun before life became harder,berfore becoming an adult , before work, before raising kids, before reality .
Brother you always had a kind smile, a niceness about you that made me feel good about myself. I could always be myself. I wish I could’ve spent more time with you......
We talked once about getting together and riding,but life got in the way. Maybe God will have roads for the two of us to ride on when meet again....
Thank you for being my friend!

My condolence's to the entire family. Duke was "one of a kind!"

We shared many a great times in our late teens and early 20's as we were learning how to be men.

I would run into Duke from time to time to catch up and see what each other was doing in life and relive the old times.

I will cherish the memories I have of Duke forever...................he was a class individual........the news of his passing was saddening and shocking.
