Memories Timeline


  1. I was a classmate with Duane in his “How To Write Your Life Story” He wrote many wonderful stories including all his family in them He had a dry wit and shared that in his stories. In reading his stories all his friends and family will remember him. Fondly, Gretchen Hart

  2. Dear Teri and Family, We were so sorry to learn of your Dad\’s passing. We remember how kind he and your Mom always were, and so interested in all the things that we were doing. Like so many dads, he didn\’t always say a lot but there was always that warm smile and gentle touch. Perry remembers seeing him riding his bike steadily towards work in the morning. Your dad would pass him on 171st on Perry\’s way to North. We wish you much comfort and peace in the days ahead. Thank God for the many happy times and memories. You\’re all in our thoughts and prayers. Love you, Perry & Cindy Shields
