Duane was a former resident of Wetumpka and moved to Texas in March 2016 where he was employed as Business Development Manager with Evaporcool. He met his wife, Terri, and they married October 28, 2016. Duane was well versed in the Bible and was a phenomenal preacher. He could sing and had an awesome voice. He could play any guitar he was handed and leave his listeners in awe.
Duane’s love for music was on display for several years as a member of The Heritage Brothers, a gospel music ministry of Heritage Baptist Church, playing lead electric guitar in the Heritage Brothers band. His guitar was a joy to listen to, filling out the music and giving it life and depth. Duane was a natural musician, consistently searching for new sounds and lead lines to bring something great to the table, all without ever using charts or music sheets. He just stood there and played and what came out was brilliant. Outside the music, Duane was a joy be around. He lived Colossians 3:12-13 in that he was kind, compassionate, humble, patient and forgiving. He was loved by his fellow Heritage Brothers and he returned the love.
He is survived by wife, Terri Ann Davis; daughter, Autumn Nicole Lance (C.J.); stepchildren, Heather Ford and Brandon Gaskin; father, Ronald Davis (Regina); mother, Nancy Davis; biological mother, Amanda Motes; brothers, Jason Davis (Bonnie) and Daren Davis (Andrea); and sister, Dana Sawyer (Benjamin).
