There's a hole left behind in our lives when someone we love goes before us. We are left with memories and time that stands still...yet would we change loving you? Never. You wore many hats over the years....Son, Daddy, Partner, brother, Mama's boy, wise guy, and a dad when you didn't have to be, lover of pick-up trucks, and fishing with his buddy Chris Hummel. But, above all, you were ours, a part of each of us. We are better for knowing you, better for lessons you taught us...we will always love you, Duane.

Visitation will be Wednesday, January 24, 2018 from 5-7 pm with services immediately following with Pastor Byron Denman officiating at Hoffmann-Gottfried-Mack Funeral Home & Crematory, 236 S. Washington St. in Tiffin, Ohio.

Duane's favorite attire is jeans, a comfy t-shirt and his slippers. Please come in comfortable clothes to honor him.

Memorial contributions may be made to a charity of the donor’s choice.
