Duane graduated from Glenbrook North High School in 1972. After a year of working, he attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for Engineering. He ultimately graduated from DeVry Technical Institute of Technology. He began working for EMI repairing cat hold X-ray tubes and being on-call for emergency repair work as these were usually used at hospitals. He then began at Sony in the high-end equipment repair department. After Sony he became self employed as a video engineer. After many years and numerous projects, he was invited to work for Harpo Studios. He spent 25 years with them and experienced more than most people could even imagine, including being nominated for an Emmy in 1997.
In 1988, Duane shot a Hole-In-One on his first attempt at golfing.

After Harpo Studios, he began to enjoy retirement life at homes he owned in Naperville, Illinois and Palmetto, Florida.

His love for sailing evolved and he joined his parents who had already belonged to the DuPage Power Squadron. His involvement of over 15 years included teaching Weather, receiving numerous Merits, and was honored as Commander three times. He is also the current Commander.

Duane also enjoyed playing the drums. In his earlier years, he was a member of a band called, The Cucumber Rebellion. Later in life he was asked to join Joe’s Garage. He played numerous venues including opening for Doobie Brothers at the Naperville Rib Fest. He was also a member of The Hardened Bunker Rock & Soul Review which had a benefit concert that helped raise over $3,500 for Operation Support Out Troops.

He developed life-long friendships with many of the people he interacted with and shared his love of life with all of them.
