Mary & I are so sorry for Duke's passing. He was a friend for about 50 years. Also sorry we were unable to attend the visitation due to present circumstances. Our thoughts are with Louise, Dennis, Sharon, & Sheila.

Dad and Duke worked together for 35 years and that made their lives so much richer. The good times they had! Patricia, Beckie, Britt, and I will miss Duke very much, I’ll always remember him teaching me guitar lessons and his love of fishing. All our love.

Louise and Family, we are so sorry to hear of Harold’s passing. I met Harold back in the late 1980’s. Through the years he belonged to the Greater St. Louis Horseshoe Club, the New Melle/Quail Ridge Horseshoe Club and the Golden Triangle Horseshoe Club. He was a member of the National Pitcher’s Horseshoe Association for 27 years. Harold was a good pitcher. He enjoyed pitching in the Mixed league with his wife, Louise, and in the Men’s league and many, many tournaments, including World, State and local, over the 34 years that I have known him. He was always a good sport, win or lose, always ready to help with projects and a good friend. He loved to pitch and was a good competitor. We will miss him very much.
