Duane Moon, 72, of Eagle, Idaho, passed away on Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2017, after a long, hard battle with prostate cancer.
Born on July 24, 1945, to Veachel Neavitt and Dorothy Moon in Klamath Falls, Ore., he was the youngest of four siblings, Bob, Don, Donna and Duane. As the youngest, he developed a very sensitive soul and always had a listening ear or shoulder to cry on. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. On many occasions, he became the father needed to his nieces, nephews and many of his daughters' friends. Duane was much loved and well respected. He had a passion for numbers, which became very useful in his career as an accountant.
Duane received his associate's degree from Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls. He worked as an accountant, controller and VP of a credit union throughout his long accounting career.
He met his wife-to-be, Donna, at a Bible study in 1966. Two years later, they were married and had two beautiful daughters and six grandchildren.
Duane loved his work, his friends and, most of all, his family. He was a very dedicated, caring person who touched many hearts. He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Bob; and brother-in-law, Gene. He is survived by his sister and brother, Donna Talley of Sutherlin, Ore., and Don Moon of Medford, Ore.; his daughters, Kelley Michalik of Eagle, Idaho, and Kristy Fields of Carlsbad, Calif.; his eight grandchildren, Melanie, Dylan, Tori, Amanda, Caitlin, Jackson, Natalie and Maddie; his nieces and nephews; and his many, many friends.
All are invited to attend Duane's celebration of life service in Evergreen Baptist Fellowship, 7451 S. Sixth St., Klamath Falls, on Nov. 18, 2017, at 2 p.m.
