Dennis Lee Duncan, 58, of Kennewick, Wash., died May 20, 2003.
There will be no memorial service. Disposition was by cremation.
Dennis was born on Nov. 7, 1944, at Baker City to Elmer A. and Edna E. Duncan.
He attended Baker City schools, graduated from Baker High School and immediately joined his beloved Marine Corps in 1963. He served tours in Vietnam and was honorably discharged after more than 14 years of service.
Dennis then lived on the east coast in Boston, and then Miami where he was employed until becoming ill with respiratory problems.
He moved to Kennewick in 1997 when he became totally disabled.
During his time of illness, Dennis became a computer addict and contacted many comrades from his Marine days via chat rooms and e-mail. He kept daily contact with them as with new friends he met. He was very outgoing and had many stories to tell of his military days, especially his time spent in the war.
Survivors include his brother, Larry Duncan of Kennewick; his special friend, Jan Skeen of Mount Vernon, Ohio; and several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers and a sister.
