I have know Duke since I was in elementary school. He was a good friend of my Dad’s. He was a joker and always in a good mood. RIP Duke.
Shirley, I am so very sorry to hear of Duke’s passing. He and my dad were always such good friends. When I was in my teens, dad always told me to let Duke service my car when he was working at the Gulf Station in the Burg. I will miss seeing you and him riding in your golf cart. Prayers to you.
