It is with a heavy heart I send this note of the passing of MEGHP Duane Young.
I do not have any more information as I read the obituary in the Lakeland paper today.
He passed on July 3. I am trying to contact his family for any other information.
His memorial service will be at a later date.
He is to be laid to rest at Bushnell next to Norma.
I have left a message with MEGHP Floyd to let him know.
