Duane had a great sense of humor and was a very loyal friend. Additionally, he was very patriotic and served his country with fine service. Highly intelligent, Duane made good grades in school and participated in all sports in high school. One of his great achievements in basketball occurred while the South Haven Cardinals were playing Aragonia during his senior year. Duane got the hot hand and scored 12 points in one quarter that made the game really close. He also played short stop in Babe Ruth Baseball and was a good fielder. His love for athletics extended to adult years as he took up golf and was pretty good at it. Even though South Haven was a small school of about 100 student, D...uane was liked by everyone. He definitely made a contribution to society and his parents and family were very proud of him. He will definitely be missed.Read more
