Thank you with all my heart for your words of kindness, letters, cards,  flowers & donations to celebrate my dear Dave's departure to the next event in life.  ~ Lee


Dave passed away at the age of 62 following a brave and courageous battle with prostate cancer. At the moment of his untimely death he was surrounded by his spouse and dearest friends.

He was born February 19, 1949 in Whitehall, Montana to Philip and Katherine (Hotrum) Duncan. When Dave was four years of age his family moved to Dillon, Montana in order for his father to assume the position of Montana Fifth District Judge. Dave attended the local schools graduating from Beaverhead County High School in 1967. In 1971 he graduated from the University of Montana in Missoula with a Bachelor's degree in political science.

After twenty-five successful years at the Seattle Gift Center Dave made the decision to sell his business and retire.
He relocated to West Hollywood. Not being one to let the battle with cancer to slow him down, Dave continued to make the most of every moment pursuing the adventures of travels to Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, and South America.

Dave's bright and positive outlook on life served as an inspiration to those who were caught in the arc of the bright light of his being. He will be especially missed by his family members who survive him in death; Lee Hurley his spouse and life partner of 30 years, brother Monty (Kay) Duncan, Butte, MT, sister Irene (Tom) Erdie, Helena, MT, sister Jane Duncan, Missoula, MT, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Private burial took place at the family site in Pony, Montana;
