In 1964 the family moved to Naches, WA where Duane attended school and graduated from Naches High School in 1975. After graduation, Duane worked for Rowe Farms and Snokist Growers in Naches and Yakima. On March 23, 1983 he married Lorri Weston and they made their home in Naches.

Duane was a talented carpenter and mechanic. Lorri and Duane bought and remodeled homes and eventually purchased their own home in Selah. In 2002, Duane started working for DRR Fruit as Plant Manager where he worked until his death.
