Duane was a great guy. No airs about him whatsoever. He was a friend when I needed one, badly. He and I decided to sign up to go into the USAF on the "Buddy Plan," after hearing all the spiels on that fateful day when they herded all of the senior boys into the gym and heard all the pretty lies from the various recruiters. We rode the bus to the induction center in LA the weekend we graduated. I got rejected, for a transient and very slight physical condition, but he got in, and made a career of it. He looked me up on the net a few years ago and we exchanged some emails.

R.I.P. Old Friend.

Duane lived about 5 houses down from me on the corner of "E" and Cedar.  We grew up together, and even though we did not run with the same folks in highschool, we remained friends.  I remember him coming down to talk to me when I was in college.  Later, after his stint(s) in Vietnam, he shared that he lived on the economy in Saigon and had to have about 1/3 of his stomach removed because the VC had apparently "spiked" his angel hair pasta dish with spun glass.  I never got that out of my mind.  and, to this day, I think of that story whenever I have an angel hair pasta dish. Rest in peace, Duane
