    Sorry to hear of Dukes passing,it was a privilege to have know him, GREAT guy

    1. Thank you, John … Duke often spoke of his friends at the Hideaway Restaurant and Bar … He told me they were like “his family” many times … Often spoke of the fun times, enjoying his “cold ones” and cooking for fundraisers, enjoyed the camaraderie of all of you … He missed that so much when it closed down during the pandemic, isolating him more since the loss of his four siblings 😢… His health began to fail, started seeing docs, couldn’t get a firm diagnosis until February 8th when he called me 😢… Thank you all for being “like family” to my brother, Duke Denning ❤🙏👍… His loving sister in Missouri

    2. Barry, yes, Duke, my brother, was a great guy ❤👍❤ … Thank you for your kind comments …
