Duane Fettig

July 18, 1945 - April 12, 2013


Duane passed away on April 12, 2013 at the Palliative Care Unit of Sanford Health, Fargo after a courageous battle against cancer.

Duane Anthony, son of Anton (Tony) and Barbara (Feit) Fettig was born on July 18, 1945 in Rugby, ND.

Duane lived and worked in various places over his life, but for anyone that knew him there were things that never changed; his dedication to his longtime companion, his collection of watches and eagles, his candy stash that invaded every drawer of the house, and the love for his pick-up. Duane was a 4th Degree Member of the Knights of Colombus.

He is survived by his longtime companion and friend, Dorene Gregor, his daughter, Jodi (Calvin) Gardner of Aberdeen, SD, two grandchildren, Heaven and Anthony (Tony), two sisters, Donna (Scotty) Krall of San Antonio, TX, and Sharon (Thomas) Bird of West Fargo, ND, sister-in-law Donna Fettig of Minot, ND, brother-in-law Marvin Newgard of Devils Lake, ND. He was also survived by many nieces, a nephew, and many great nieces and nephews.

Duane was preceded in death by his parents, one brother, Don Fettig and one sister, Janice Newgard.

In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred.

Per the request of the deceased, cremation will take place.

    I want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. My father was a wonderful man that gave all he had. He will be remembered by those of us that loved him and called him a brother, father, uncle, and friend!

    On Angel’s wings my father raced, to see his savior face to face.
    Grief on earth is hard to bear, thank you all for showing you cared!

    I was sad to hear of Duane’s passing. As he was recovering from his last go-around with health issues he and I made plans to get together. He wanted to show me his Lincoln (which he was humbled to receive) and he wanted to see my place for the first time. Dewey and I met back in the mid 80’s and stayed in regular contact since. He earned my respect as someone on a constant journey for self improvement though it had to be on his own terms. Derene, he valued you greatly and brought him tremendous comfort and companionship as he faced his many challenges. I certainly knew it would take a powerful force to end Dewey’s life, as he had survived multiple things in his life that have claimed lesser men. Godspeed, my friend! Ed

    Duane was such a delight to know, he was a wonderful friend to me, always ready with a comforting word whenever I was upset at work. He helped me out in many ways. His sense of humor was contagious and his sweet tooth was legendary! He had a great work ethic, and his devotion to Dorene was touching. You will be greatly missed, dear friend.
