Richard Linuel Duncan, 67, passed away Thursday, February 13, 2020, along with his beloved wife of nearly 36 years Julie Condon Duncan. Richard was born August 7, 1952 in San Antonio to Linuel and Dorothy Phelps Duncan.

His father taught him to play golf, a sport he enjoyed playing all his life with his buddies throughout several states.

Richard and I attended Andress High School in El Paso, TX. I remember him being well-liked, funny, and very athletic. Richard always had a smile on his face. The world lost a good man. His wife looked like she was a lovely person.
May God bless the family to have the strength to get through this very difficult time.
