I was saddened to hear about Uncle Duane's passing. He is responsible for many fond memories growing up. He was an icon that took us backpacking, fishing, and always showed the "Sweeds" a good time. I will miss his "no nonsense approach" to everything. Prayers and thoughts to Mike, Dave, Mary, Nanette, and all of their descendents. Cary Swenson, Nephew, Kingman, AZ. posted on 10/21/14

Thank you uncle Duane for being a great uncle, for loving the Gospel, for loving temple work, for taking the time to backpack, fish and hunt in Utah, Wyoming and Arizona. Will miss you, the talks that we had about everything including being single and doing temple work, and your sense of humor. Prayers are for your family. Your nephew, Rick Swenson, Phoenix Arizona.
