His legacy
A genuine and lasting soul  
Duane was truly a remarkable human being. His passage of time in this life will never be forgotten. His dedication to serve our lord and all mankind unselfishly is a lesson of true love. The day after his home burned to the ground with all of his possessions inside he had to borrow clothes and a bible to minister to the homeless under the bridge in Austin. We will truly miss you brother.
