James Duke

A Warrior has gone to Valhalla. Sergeant Major James, “Jimmy” Duke has passed after a long battle with health issues. He will be greatly missed by those who had the pleasure to know him. He was friendly and respectful to all, and had a great sense of humor to bring you a laugh when you needed one. He spent 28 1/2 years in the US Army and loved every minute. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Anya. He loved riding his Harley. Ride on.

Rest in peace, Sir.

SGM James Duke.

U S Army Special Forces (Ret)
