Duaine was united in marriage to Donalda Mae (Donnie) Hobson February 24, 1947 at what is now known as Worden Cornerstone Church. They had just reached their 73rd wedding anniversary on February 24, 2020, just 3 days before Donnie’s death.
As a young man, Duaine worked for the railroad and as a mechanic for the John Deere business in Ottawa, Kansas. He also farmed and raised livestock with his father. In 1956 he began his career at Farmland Industries in Lawrence, Kansas, retiring in 1983. Duaine and Donnie were always supportive of their daughters and attended all of their school and 4-H activities.
Duaine is survived by two daughters, Terrie Lindholm and Connie Taylor, both of Baldwin City; five grandchildren: Tina Caruthers, Vicki Mignot (Jim), Jody Merritt (Jerod), Crystal Allison (Barrett), and Luke Taylor; ten great grandchildren: Kaden Keith, Chase and Nathan Mignot, Brett and Ace Courtney, Oliver Merritt; and Trenton, Bergen, Marcus and Kayla Allison; one great-great grandson: Caleb Courtney; sister, Patricia Gilges of Baldwin City; and many, many nieces and nephews, who lovingly referred to him as “Uncle Bud.”
Duaine was preceded in death by his wife, parents; sister: Elaine Hoopes; and daughter: Cheryl Spurlock. Duaine enjoyed 38 years of retirement, especially watching his grandchildren and great-grandchildren participate in various school and sporting activities when he and Donnie were able to go. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.
