Note: Duane had gone missing on Thursday, January 12th. Over the next two weeks many people searched his 800-acre farm for him and followed up on leads, but to no avail. A more intensive foot-based search was organized on January 26th, and Duane's body was found in a crevice on his property. Earlier searches in that area revealed nothing, and it is thought he was covered by snow at the time. Foul play is not suspected in Duane's disappearance; the man who found him related Duane 'looked peaceful', as though he was sitting in a favorite place waiting to watch the sun come up.

2016 addendum: Duane's ashes were interred in Union Free Cemetery near Germanville beside his parents; he is also noted on his parents' gravestone.
