Raymond "Corky" Duncan

March 8, 1953April 7, 2019

Raymond “Corky” Duncan received his Heavenly wings Sunday, April 7, 2019, GOSHO! Born on March 8, 1953 in Minden, WV, he was the son of the late David Calvin Duncan and Hannah Ruth Deck Duncan.

Corky was a quiet and gentle man who never had a harsh word to say, family meant everything to him. It takes a special man to come into an already made family and help raise those children as his own; which is exactly what he did.

He leaves behind his lifelong companion, Patricia Bone; Sharon (Cecil) Evans of Oak Hill, Mary (Gary) Ferrell of Fayetteville, and Mike (Kim) Bone of Fayetteville whom are proud to call him “Dad”. His grandchildren are Pete (Beverly), Rebecca (Adam), Krystal, Amber, Jackie (Nicki), Frank (Hillary), Laken, Taren, Kourtney (Justin), Jerod, Jason and Jessica, whom all enjoyed growing up sitting on his lap as Santa, going on vacation to Tennessee and listening to his wonderful laugh, among many other memories they shared with their “papaw.” He also had 19 grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; sisters, Patricia (Ray) Holbrook of Galloway, OH, Janice (Mark) Krosky of Scott Depot, WV, and Joanne McCoy of Charleston, WV; and brothers, Danny Duncan of Oak Hill, WV, David Duncan of Minden, WV and Harold (Patricia) Duncan of Fayetteville, WV.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers, Charles E. Duncan and Robert Lee Duncan.

Services will be held at 1:00 pm, Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at Blue Ridge Memorial Gardens with Pastor Milburn Pack officiating.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of Southern West Virginia-Bowers Hospice House, 454 Cranberry Dr., Beckley, WV 25801.

Pawpaw was the most self-less man I knew. He lived life to the fullest, spending time with his beloved "Trishy" enjoying time outdoors visiting Tennessee and Summersville Lake often. He loved cars and fixing things up. He loved feeding all the birds and squirrels in the neighborhood. He will be truly missed. I have faith that I will see him again. I know that he has gained his wings and is visiting with his loved ones behind him.

Corky is definitely one of the nicest kindest people I have had the pleasure of calling my friend. He was very giving; loved to give to children. I’m so sorry for his lose. We sure will miss him.
