Duane was born March 30, 1951, to Ernest and Orieta Jackson in Alva and was called home on August 8, 2022 after a brief illness.
He was a devoted husband to Sherrill for nearly 49 years and together they were blessed with two sons, Michael and Evan, nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
Duane was raised and educated in Burlington and graduated from Burlington High School in 1969.
A lifelong farmer and rancher, Duane was also a talented guitarist and avid woodworker. His family will cherish memories of his contagious laugh, thoughtful, beautiful handmade gifts and his music. When we listen to classic rock or appreciate the beauty of quality woodwork, we will know our fedora wearing, big hearted Duane is with us.
