Duke, as most of us close friends called him and Beverly made a great team. They were very involved with Saint Dunstan's Catholic Parish in Millbrae. Duke was president of the Saint Dunstan school board and instrumental in saving the school from closing in 1972. Bev taught second grade at the school for close to 30 years.
A memorial Mass and celebration of Duke's life will be held at 10 AM, Saturday, September 9, 2017 at Saint Dunstan Catholic Church, 1133 Broadway, in Millbrae, CA. A reception will follow the service.
We will miss his awesome sense of humor, his interesting conversations and commentary on life and his accepting ways with everyone. He was one of a kind.
