Duane Maurice Burke Sr. transitioned on June 23, 2021. He was a beloved Brother, Husband, Father, Uncle, Deacon and picked up many other titles and responsibilities along his journey. Duane was preceded in death by his mother (Bernadine) and his brother (Dwayne Thomas).
He leaves behind his loving wife (Shannon), 3 children (Nia, Duane Jr, and Jasmine) and his dog (Camillie). Also among the land of the living are his father (Lorenzo Sr.), His brother (Lorenzo Jr. with wife Pamela), his sister-in-law (Dana with Husband Jack), his parent in laws (Lee and Robin) and a gang of nieces, nephews, other family and friends.
The military allowed him to get a kickstart in his adult life and allowed him to meet many lifelong friends. He was a family man, but his impact went far beyond the family and spilled into the community. His love for God, music, movies, and sports was undeniable and easily flowed into his ministry.
