John Edward Duke, 57, of Haw River, passed away Sunday, 7/10/2022, at home after a courageous long battle with cancer.
John was born and raised in New England and settled in Harrisburg, PA, for 20 years. Most recently, his home was in Haw River with his wife, Lynn.
John was a friend to many, always lending a helping hand to those in need. He was a master electrician, carpenter, and all-around fixit-it man. He was active in his church over the years. He had a wide-open heart and loved to be around people. He loved music and all things electronic. He was an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox, Boston Bruins, Boston Celtics, and New England Patriots.
