I worked with Duane at the water facilities up to his retirement. I'm sorry to hear of his passing. We didn't see him much after he retired but we thought of him and also shared stories of times before. Rest easy ole friend....enjoy your peace.

Dear Rose: Thank you for your call. Our sympathy and love to you, Steven and Jennifer. We met Duane when he lived in Council Bluffs, IA, and our friendship continued over the years, over the distance. I found a picture from June 25, 1977 when you visited us in Cheyenne (Duane and you were playing TV Pong), and a picture when we met you at the Tampa Zoo on Jan. 29, 2011. Good memories for us.... and we pray YOUR good memories of life with Duane will help you and your family get past this time of grief. Sincerely, Bill & Linda Snyder
