On March 18th, 2017, the world experienced a devastating loss. Just two days after his 23rd birthday, Allen Duke had his life taken away. Allen was walking to work when an SUV was driven onto the sidewalk in Durango, Colorado, ending his life far too soon.

Allen was excited to graduate college next month and start his life. He wanted to move to Canada and travel the world. He was so smart, funny, and caring. He was, and always will be, such a special person.

Allen leaves behind a twin brother, an older sister, and two wonderful parents. This fund is set up to help his family with any hospital bills, memorial costs, end-of-life expenses, or whatever else the Duke family needs in the upcoming months.

Thank you for any donations. Any funds given that are not used will given charitably.

Allen, you are missed and forever loved.

Yes Sheri, thank you so much for being a friend to Allen & our family. The driver who killed our son left us without our treasured son but also a large financial debt for his burial and school costs. While it won't bring Allen back into our hearts, this really helps to minimize the burden. We love you

Thank you, Sheri! We are all so touched by the outpouring of love and compassion from everyone in response to the devastating loss of our son. We so appreciate your thoughtfulness. It has been so helpful not to have to deal with the stress of the financial aspect of this horrific ordeal in addition to the emotional one. Thank you to everyone who has helped to make this burden lighter.
