Remembering Duncan

On Thursday, August 23, 2018, Duncan McDannell, loving son and brother, left us at just 16.  Duncan was an amazingly accomplished teenager, and his intelligence and passion for what he pursued were unusual for someone so young. Just in this past year alone, Duncan earned his third degree green belt in the art of Okinawan Karate-Do, volunteered as a math tutor at Franklin Police and Fire High School, and received a certificate for outstanding achievement in mathematics and science at the Joaquin Bustoz Math-Science Honors Program at Arizona State University.  Duncan was an amazing soul, one that was original and unique for this world. His mind worked in amazing ways, which poured through in his writing. His matchless wit and big  warm smile will be greatly missed by all he touched in his dedicated and selfless life.

The financial assistance needed is for funeral costs that will assist his family due to the unexpected nature of his passing.  Anything will help and will be greatly appreciated in their time of need and sorrow.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday September 1st from 12-3 at Samaritan Funeral Home. The address is 1505 E McDowell Rd. Phoenix AZ.
