His Life


Duane spent his youth and teen years in Spring Branch, and graduated from Northbrook High School.  After graduating with a degree in Electrical Engineering from Texas A & M in College Station, he started working on Remote Monitoring Stations for Energy Transfer in Victoria Texas.  As his professional career developed, he started a successful business  American Boat & RV, providing temporary storage units.
Duane loved nature and the great outdoors in general, and enjoying fishing and hunting in his spare time.  He learned the fine art of "piddling" from his father and could build or fix just about anything.  Over the years, Duane re-build his home from top to bottom, with many upgrades, improvements, and personal touches.
Duane is survived by his wife Lorinda Ann Salley Beal, and his daughters Tina & Lori and six grandchildren, Michael, Justin, (?? brain freeze??) Shelby, Braden, Caleb.
