Obituary for Dillard Henry Duncan, Jr.
Dillard Henry Duncan, Jr., 89, died Wednesday, August 2, 2017 at the Gettysburg Hospital following injury and illness.

He leaves two daughters, Isabella C. Schaefer of Maryland and Suzanna B. Duncan of Pennsylvania; his son-in-law Steve Schaefer of Maryland; his brother Huey Duncan of Louisiana; his sister-in-laws Caroline Duncan of Louisiana and Fran Duncan of Louisiana; his daughter-in-law Sadie Duncan of D.C.; his grandchildren, Raquel DeAngelo of Georgia, Storm Woerner of Florida, Moby Duncan of California and Zhivago Duncan of Mexico; his great-grandchildren, Marcus Antonio DeAngelo of Georgia, Cecelia Isabella DeAngelo of Georgia, and Noah Byron Zhivago Hevicke of Germany; and many close friends from around the world.

Born November 16, 1927 in Good Pine, Louisiana and raised in Monroe, Louisiana, the son of the late Dillard and Lessie Duncan (Isby).

Mr. Duncan was a veteran of the United States Air Force and served as a sergeant during the Korean Conflict. He then continued to serve as a member of the United States Foreign Service and served at the Department of State for 31 years. During his time serving our country, he was able to travel much of the world which was always a passion of his. He gained a wealth of knowledge about people and culture that he loved sharing with everyone he met. After retiring from the Department of State, he spent many years living in Las Vegas, NV, before ultimately settling down in Gettysburg, PA in 2001.

Mr. Duncan was an avid bowler and participated in a weekly league in Biglerville. He also thoroughly enjoyed the game of golf. In his lifetime he endured, overcame and triumphed trials and tribulations many could not fathom. Yet through it all he had a wonderfully bright spirit and a love for life that was contagious to all he knew. He did not want a formal service, therefore his funeral will be private and at the announcement of his family. In lieu of a formal service his wish was simply to be fondly remembered and celebrated by all who knew and loved him. Online obituary and condolences available at
