Our classmate, Dave Dukeman, has passed away. For those of you that are not on Facebook, here is part of a recent post there.
“[He] served as manager of the College of the Redwoods Bookstore for 25 years. He also worked for more than 35 years as a small engine mechanic at Western Chainsaw in Eureka, which he always considered to be his fun job.”
David Lee Dukeman, age 71, of Eureka, passed away peacefully in his home on Sunday, May 21, 2017, surrounded by his wife and sons, after a battle with lung cancer.
Here are a couple of classmate comments:
Neil Obright David was a joy to know in David was a joy to know in high school and I am so sorry to hear of his passing.
|Gerald Miwa: I am profoundly saddened by this news. I was not as close to Dave as some other classmates but, it seemed, every several years we connected as in El Camino, our 25th and 50th reunions and some email exchanges through the years. During these contacts Dave always made me feel welcome and it seemed the years since our high school life had not occurred. I will miss not being able to reconnect with him again. I will miss you Dave.|
