Duane was born to parents, Theodore Everette Sr. and Jessimine Wallace, at Lakeside Hospital in Deer Park, New York on February 8, 1969.
Growing up Duane was the youngest of several children. Duane and his family moved from New York to the southern United States, finally settling in sunny San Diego, California as a preteen. In his adolescent years, Duane was very athletic and had a passion for sports. So much so, that he was recognized by sports scouts. Duane graduated from Point Loma High School in 1987. Duane enjoyed working with children and being a part of a good cause, like every year that he was an Easter bunny for the March of Dimes organization.
By 2000, Duane was a father of three and a graduate of Southwestern College in Masonry and Horticulture. Duane loved to work on cars and was a skilled self-taught mechanic. He also wrote poetry and was a talented artist. Duane was an advocate fisherman who enjoyed being on the open water, rain or shine. Duane finally found his niche securing and protecting the port of San Diego, and the water he loved so much. Duane leaves behind his three children; Mariama, Maya and Malcom as he goes to spend eternity in heaven. This isn’t goodbye, Dad’s just gone fishin’!
