Duane Doan Obituary

Duane A. Doan, age 88 of Knoxville passed away on Tuesday, January 10, 2023 at UPMC Wellsboro. Born April 11, 1934 in Knoxville, he was the son and only child of the late Paul and Aletha (Daniels) Doan. He married Betty Ann (Kemp) on April 30, 1953. They spent almost 60 years together until her passing on April 15, 2013. Duane worked as a mechanic for many years for Frank Chevrolet in Elkland, and then he and Orman Surina bought the business and were co-owners of D & S Chevrolet for many years until they retired. Duane was a Pennsylvania Deputy Game Warden for over 30 years. He had many interests throughout his life, such as, an avid Amateur Radio operator, and working with electronics. He loved fixing any kind of electronics, and still did up until he was too ill to do it. In his younger days he loved fishing (especially fly fishing), boating and tent camping; in his later years, he loved baking sugar cookies and giving them to everyone, and he also had a love for his pets. Most importantly he loved spending time with family. He is survived by his daughters, Kathy (Randy) Morgan of Elkland, Linda (Doug) Skinner of Westfield, Wendy (Mike) Kimble of Elkland and Jodie (Jason) Dibble of Knoxville; nephew, Marty (Lisa) Kemp of Salisbury, PA (Duane & Betty helped raise Marty in his younger years); his grandchildren, Ryan (April) Morgan of Elkland, Kelly (Ben) Walker of Kentucky, Dan (Brandi) Skinner of Montana, Leah (Shane) Fuller of Middlebury Center, Christopher (Laura) Kimble of Arizona, John (Katie) Kimble of New Jersey, Logan Dibble of Knoxville and Avery Ann Dibble of Knoxville; 15 great grandchildren; cousin, Elva (Dave) Owlett of Almond, NY; nieces, nephews, many cousins and his close friend Roberta Hackett of Nelson.
