Duane Oren Shuey
Feb. 24, 1933 - Feb. 12, 2015
“As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness; I will be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness.” -- Psalm 17:15
Duane Shuey went to be with his Lord on February 12, 2015. He passed away peacefully at home with both of his daughters by his side. Because of his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, we can rejoice, knowing that he is in the presence of the Lord, and “we don’t grieve as those who have no hope,” as the scriptures say.
He is also survived by a brother and two sisters. His remains will be returned to Polson, Montana, the birthplace that he loved. The family is also planning a full military service, to be held at a future date.
