On June 15th, 2022 Dan passed away quietly and unexpectedly at home near Bend, Oregon where he had just moved to enjoy retirement.
Dan was born January 26, 1960 in Lancaster, CA and as a child moved to Silverton in 1962. He graduated from Silverton Union High School in 1978.
In May 2021, he retired from Fred Meyer after a 33-year career in their corporate office.
Dan enjoyed kayaking on the Deschutes River, biking, trips to the Oregon Coast, a glass of good red wine and helping neighbors and friends in so many different ways. He was looking forward to serving his new community by being elected to the HOA board and volunteering in the financial office for the local fire department.
Dan is survived by his life partner of 37 years, Steve Edwards of Bend, his mother Judy Duncan of Silverton, brother and sister-in-law David and Shawn Duncan of Mt. Vernon OR, sister and brother-in-law Glen and Cheri Knutson of Snohomish WA, half-sister and brother-in-law JR and Lisa Lesch of Salem, nephews Andrew (Liz) Duncan, Donivan (Patricia) Duncan and Wyatt Lesch and nieces Lindsey (Joe) Madden, Amanda Knutson and Aubrey Knutson. He is preceded in death by his father, Don Duncan.
A celebration of life will be held Saturday, September 10th at the First Christian Church Fellowship room in Silverton between 1 and 3 pm.
Dan will be deeply missed.
