Duane Norman Booker, 92, of Duluth passed away peacefully, with his loving family by his side, Sunday, Feb. 12, 2017 in Duluth. He was born Nov. 26, 1924 to Agnes and Samuel Booker in Cook.

He was united in marriage to June Anderson on Oct. 16, 1948.

Duane was a Veteran, having proudly served his country in the Navy during World War II from 1942 to 1944 and in the Marine Corps during the Korean Conflict from 1950 to 1952. He received a Purple Heart during his service.

Duane worked for Interlake Iron and Weyerhouser in Cloquet. He was a member of the Moose Lake Masonic Lodge, the VFW, the American Legion, the Purple Heart Association, B Company Marines and a past member of the Scottish Rite Bagpipe Band. He was also a member of Elim Lutheran Church for many years.

He loved gardening, whether it was vegetables or flowers. He started his tomatoes and geraniums in January in the basement, which was his true passion. He also looked forward to visiting his daughter-in-law, Margaret's greenhouse in the Spring.

Duane was a hardworker, making sure his family was always provided for.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, June; daughter, Shelly; granddaughter, Kirsten Banttari; and his brothers and sisters.

Duane is survived by his children: Carol (Larry) Shevchuk, Mike (Margaret ) Booker, Sheila (David) Banttari, and Debbie Booker-Streu; 14 grandchildren; 29 great-grandchildren ; two great-great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
