|Received this sad news from a friend of Dennis who
has been a participant
in our communication circle of friends. I never met him but he had been at
Ky Ha when we were there and I believe in Hueys. He has now departed the
pattern and gone on to better skies. We'll miss him.
I am a friend of Dennis Duncan and wanted to let you know that he passed away this morning. Not a cool way to do it but I don't know how to use his computer.
A Quote from Dunc's Bottom Line:
I did not serve with this man, this warrior, this Marine this brother mine. Yet for the better part of two years he has been a source of humor, of thoughts given with his Duncs Bottom Line. He will always be in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless his soul. Below is my tribute to a man of deep honor.
"We few. We happy few. We Band of Brothers. For
those who shed their blood with us today shall always be our Brothers."
"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent
people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest
critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty,
to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether
by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know
even one life has breathed easier
With his passing the world is a sadder place this day.
May God hold him
William V. "Bill" Peck, MSgt USMC(Ret)
Amen - Dennis served with VMO-6 at Ky Ha while we were with 364 and he flew guns with us a number of times. I served with him in HMM-164, a composite outfit at Oki and onboard the ship. We stood shoulder to shoulder a time or two. A good man, a close friend, and a great Marine.
Dennis sent this to me several years ago. I believe it appropriate for this occasion:
"So if you happen to get "the calling", And you're
at the pearly gate,
He will be missed ..................
