“Through personal family loss, as well as families I served as a pastor in their time of loss, I decided I wanted to work at Pray Funeral Home to continue that service.”
As a pastor, Duane is involved in the Charlotte Evangelical Pastors Association, and has served 19 years in pastoral ministry with the Church of the Nazarene, in three different locations, currently in Charlotte. At Pray Funeral Home, Duane helps with service day parking, transportation and ushering, and occasionally officiates funerals. He worked 34.5 years at Fisher Body in Lansing, in both production and management.
Duane and his wife Joann are celebrating over 60 years of marital happiness. They enjoy traveling throughout North America, visiting their three children, nine grandchildren, and fifteen great-grandchildren.
