Duane was a great guy! Very smart, and very interesting to have a conversation with. My dad knew him well and he and I used to go into the TV & appliance store and visit with Duane when I was just a little kid. My sympathies to the family.

We are sad to hear of Duane's passing. We had such good visits with both Duane and Ester and looked forward to seeing them every year. He will be missed.

Another of the best businessmen of Sturgis is gone. My sympathies to his family. As a little girl I would go to Duane tv. And appliance with my parents. Duane and my dad talked fir hours. As a young mom I would be working and in would walk Duane with his beer present smile and a warm hug and kind words. He always brightened day,just by being a genuine caring guy. The world needs more duanes in it.

Uncle Duane was a super cool guy . He was so funny and I loved hanging out with him . He loved to play the organ and harmonica and of cource the best tv and appliance guy in all of South Dakota . One time we drove out two hours to help a lady fix a dishwasher and I dont even though think he charge the lady . Now that's service lol . I will miss him so much . RIP uncle Duane !!
