In February of 2007 he joined Romulus Community Baptist Church, confessing his love for Christ. Duane was known for his humor. Upon his confession to Christ he told the congregation that his wife will still attend Pine Grove, and assured his new church that she would eventually join him. In February of the same year, they both completed the new members' class. To add to this union his greatest companion...the family pet, Snowball.

He served both duties with exceptional perfection, until his health began to fail him. Duane and Pam loved planning vacations with their family.
