Text size

Dennis Duncan died unexpectedly in his home on 11/29/2017 in Duncan, Oklahoma at the age of 51.
Dennis is survived by his wife Ramona of Duncan, OK, son Daniel and his wife Ashley of Cape Coral, Florida, son Michael and his wife Ashley and their daughter Mavis Rose of Albany, Oregon, parents Dave and Nadine of San Juan Capistrano, CA, grandmother Francine Renzi of Mission Viejo, CA, brother Jordan, and his wife Tracey and their son Christopher of Irvine, CA, sister Wendy and her husband Scott, and their sons Harrison, Hayden, and Hudson of Laguna Niguel, CA.
Dennis was born February 23, 1966, in Glendale, CA to Dave and Nadine Duncan. He grew up in San Juan Capistrano, CA and attended Capistrano Valley High School. Dennis surrounded himself with friends and family and was an avid collector of model airplanes and cars.
Dennis worked with his father at Cox Hobbies in the 1980's as a reprographics technician and Cad Draftsman in the early 1990's. He began driving trucks in 1993, where he found his love for the open road. He proudly continued his career as a truck driver until his untimely death. Dennis saw many places across the country, and often shared his adventures with his family through phone calls and photos. He was a humble and hard worker who was proud to be a truck driver, earning numerous safety awards throughout his trucking career.
Dennis moved to Duncan, Oklahoma in 2003, and immediately felt it was someplace he belonged. While he was always at home with his family, in California, vacationing in Montana, or anywhere we would be, Dennis considered Duncan Oklahoma to be his home.
Dennis was always smiling, and happy to share a story with friends and complete strangers.
A funeral is scheduled for 4 p.m. Friday, December 8th, 2017, at Whitt Funeral Home - 3720 US 81 Duncan, OK. All those who knew Dennis are welcome to attend to remember and celebrate Dennis's life. The family respectfully requests that donations be made to the Stephens County Historic Museum 1402 W Beech Ave, Duncan, OK 73533, instead of flowers.
