Hi I'm Duane

I'm a father of four daughters. I'm an engineer. I love the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for thirteen years to my beautiful wife and we have four lovely daughters. My wife and I met while attending college. I am a civil engineer and currently work in the transportation field. My interests include spending time with my family, hiking, camping and visiting new places. I love my community and try to volunteer my time to help others in need.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a mormon from birth. I was baptized when I turned eight years old and have been a dedicated member ever since. I came from a loving home with a large family. My life has been full of trials, when I was a young teenager, my parents got divorced and my siblings and I struggled to cope. During this difficult time, my church leaders and other family members supported me. Due to this support, my faith continued to grow and I made one of the best decisions of my life, to serve a two year mission for my church. Through my personal trials and my missionary experience, I have strengthened my personal testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. I have learned that by following the commandments and serving others, I can find happiness in my own life.

How I live my faith

Being a mormon gives me many opportunities to provide service in my community. I am currently an assistant scoutmaster in my ward and I work with eleven year old scouts. I also teach a sunday school class with another teacher every Sunday. I hometeach two families in my neighborhood. I love hometeaching because it provides me an opportunity to get to know other families. I work for an engineering company that prides itself on giving back to the community. I volunteer with different organizations in providing service for others, including, Junior Achievement, Future Cities, Cystic Fibrosis Stairclimb and Adopt-a-Highway.
