We are so sorry to just now hear of Mr. Brubaker’s passing. We loved going by his place, picking up garden produce, chatting, and sharing - starting way back with him and Mrs. Brubaker. He was a beloved farmer and kind man. We will miss seeing him out in the yard and stopping to chat. Blessed to have known him.

Saying goodbye to the oldest of our beloved Nephews, “ Duane” is hard. He was such a generous, kind and gentle man. We shared so many family memories growing up with our ages so close. When our health began to fade Duane would stop with some fresh veggies from his garden or a mess not fresh caught fish (all cleaned”” ready for the fry pan! Then a nice visit . He will now be with his beloved Joyce Ann , but we will sure miss him. We send love, hugs and condolences to his three sons and their families, also to the families of Duanes brothers, Jim and John.

It is with great sorrow that we say goodbye to Duane. He was a wonderful part of our family. It gives us some solace to know he is with the love of his life Joyce. They were a true love story. We loved Duane, he had the best stories and we could talk forever. He will be missed by all. Sending our condolences to all the boys and their families.
