Pappa Duke was the definition of cool

Papa Duke lived a life that was full of pride, joy, and happiness. Anyone who knew my grandpa knows of his generosity, work ethic, humility and selflessness. He demonstrated these traits again and again through both his family and his career.

There are many memories Papa Duke and I have together. One of my favorite memories was when we would go to the coffee shop and have a cup of hot apple cider in the winter and smoothies in the summer.
Papa Duke will be missed dearly. I hope to someday become half the man he was. People like my grandpa are one in a million.
