I worked with Duncan at The Royal Canadian Regiment Museum. He was a wonderful volunteer and person. He taught me so much about the Canadian military and we had many wonderful discussions about his life, family, and books. My condolences to his family for their loss, Duncan will be greatly missed by all who knew him including myself.

Hi Donna

You are in our thoughts and prayers. Mom (Rita) and I remember Duncan from the RCR Association when he sort of took over from Dad.

To make you laugh, I call Duncan "Major Dad" from the old television show...he reminded me of one of the main characters.

Hi Donna my deepest condolences to you and your family. We go back a long time, we worked side by side in the old St Mary's, which now is called Mt Hope.
I was very honoured to have been invited to your wedding. We’ve had good times.
May God give you strength to encounter the future without Duncan.
As they say good friends are present in good and in bad times, and I’m here for you if you need me. RIP Duncan

My heartfelt condolences to Donna and the whole family. Sherry and I always counted you both as really good friends, and he will be sorely missed. He and Sherry can now tell good RCR stories while they enjoy a visit and perhaps a wee dram of scotch!

Condolences to the whole family on Duncan’s passing.
I remember Duncan growing up in Belmont. His dad, Neil was my grade 7/8 teacher. I hated my name....Pamela....and Neil was the only one I enjoyed saying it with his deep voice.
I often wondered if Duncan had that voice as well. His mom and dad were friends of the family as well.
Reading all the tributes and seeing all the photos , he must have grown up to be quite a man.
RIP Duncan and sincere condolences to the family at this sad time.
Sincerely Pam Rogozynski ( Frankland)
