VAN WERT, Ohio — Harley L. Duncan, 71, of Van Wert, died at 3:58 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018, at Van Wert Health. He was born Aug. 5, 1947, in Gallipolis, Ohio, to the late Mervin Harley and Zelphia (Buzzard) Duncan. Nearly 50 years ago, on Nov. 9, 1968, he married Patricia M. (Auer) and she survives of Van Wert.

Harley is survived by two children, Tonia (Edward Myers) Duncan and Eric Duncan, both of Van Wert; grandchildren, Levi Braxton Myers, Makayla Roseanne Marie Duncan, and Shaquia Shadowski; and two sisters, Shirley Settlemire of Findlay, Ohio, and Norma Jean Duncan of Piqua, Ohio.

Mr. Duncan retired from Whemco Foundry in Lima, Ohio. He had previously worked for many years at Harter Corporation and Varco-Pruden, both of Van Wert. Harley enjoyed athletics - both as a fan and participant. He coached both Little League baseball and junior softball and collected NASCAR and Coca-Cola memorabilia.

Harley and his family are very thankful and appreciative for the wonderful care and friendship they received from his long-time doctor and friend, Dr. Jerry Sell.

In addition to his parents, Harley was preceded in death by a daughter, Christina Fay Duncan; brothers, Johnny, Herbert, James, Earl, and Charles Duncan; and sisters, Vernia Barnhart and Linda Gossard.
