James Duncan

April 14, 1957 — January 9, 2021


James (Jim) L Duncan, 63 of Chadron, died as the result on an ongoing illness at the Rapid City Hospital on January 9, 2021. He was born April 14, 1957 in Chadron Nebraska to Victor L Duncan, Jr and Mary Jane (Jacobs) Duncan.

Jim graduated from Chadron High School. Following graduation he was meat cutter for much of his adult life at various grocery stores in Rushville and Gordon Nebraska. He received his Bachelors Degree from Chadron State College and worked for Cougar Systems in Chadron Nebraska as a metal fabricator.

Jim was compassionate, kind hearted and generous. He would never tolerate rudeness or cruelty to others and always had his faithful companions Cassie and Lady alongside him. He developed many friendships and thought very highly of the dialysis nurses at the Chadron Community Hospital and was very appreciative of the care and concern they gave him over the years.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by brother Mike, sisters Patty and Theresa as well as Grandparents and numerous Aunts and Uncles.

Survivors include brothers John (Linda) Duncan Kalispell MT, Steve (Julie) Duncan Chadron NE, and sister Dori (Mike) Mills Bradenton FL. He is also survived by 4 nephews, 1 niece Patricia Duncan and Special Friend Deb Cahoon.

Memorial services will be held at 10 am Saturday January 16th at Chamberlain Chapel in Chadron NE with Pastor Ann Sundberg officiating. Burial will take place immediately following the service at Calvary Cemetery in Chadron NE. Out of an abundance of caution for those attending due to COVID, masks and social distancing will be required.

Honorary pallbearers are Mike Neeley, and nephews Mike Mower, Casey Mills, Brandon Mills and Phillip Duncan.

Those who wish to remember Jim in a special way may make gifts in his memory to the National Kidney Foundation.
