June 13, 1930 ~ August 11, 2019
Duane passed away peacefully Sunday morning, August 11, 2019, surrounded by loved ones, at the age of 89. Duane was born June 13, 1930 in West Weber Utah to Parley and Eliza Wagstaff. In his younger years he worked for Browning Chevrolet and the Ogden StockYards, while also helping out with the family farm.
Duane graduated from Weber High School, where he met his wife Cleo Rawson. They were married November 3, 1950 in the Salt Lake Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Duane helped run a successful dairy farm with his father and his brother in West Weber. He was known for stacking up the corn silage in the pit so high that people would stop and watch in disbelief. Duane truly loved to farm.
Duane also loved to hunt and be in the mountains, especially when he was able to ride his horses. He was known to his grandkids as “Grandpa Pepper”.
