My deep condolences to the entire family. I always looked forward to seeing and talking to Duane at family gatherings and loved hearing what was on his mind, and enjoyed our conversations. I was grateful that he helped with some finish carpentry at the condo, and I remember watching him in awe as he hauled a door up the multiple-turn stairs with ease. I'll never forget the fun times we had during "big guys poker". I'll miss him. Rest in Peace Duane.

Our deepest sympathy to you all. He was a wonderful neighbor, and friend who we will miss dearly. We will miss our daily greeting of...How Goes It?
Rest in peace Duane, we will make a toast to your memory with a Lone Star beer.
Love Dan and Jean Delikowski
