Special “brother” of Jackie Weiss, Bert and Jim Erb. Son-in-law of Jeanne and the late Omer Lalonde. Brother-in-law of Gary, Brian (Lucy) and Paul Lalonde (Jean). Duke fought hard these last four years and we have so many people to thank for their care, support and compassion especially Northern Michigan Regional Hospital, Sault Area Hospital (Continuing Complex Care and 1B), Ric Thomson, Peter Feifel and their team and the wonderful staff of the FJ Davey Home (Cedar Grove 2). An extra special thanks to his “girls” Krys St. Jules and Melissa Kowalyk.
