OBITUARY: Paul N. Duncan Jr.

Duncan, founder of Duncan's Collision, Inc., in Boardman, Ohio, served on the Ohio Collision Repair Registration Board and was an active ASA member.

From The Youngstown Vindicator

Paul N. Duncan Jr., 47, passed away on Nov. 1, 2010. Duncan was born Dec. 19, 1962, in Atlanta, a son of Paul N. Duncan Sr. and Barbara Barton.

Paul was the founder and shared owner of Duncan’s Collision, Inc., which he and his wife opened in 1988.

He was an avid member of the Automotive Service Association with the Youngstown Chapter, State of Ohio Chapter and National.

In 2006, he became a member of the Ohio BMV Collision Repair Registration board, appointed by then Governor Taft and was reappointed in 2009 by Governor Strickland. He was honored to serve this board.

Paul’s ultimate passion turned to boating. Spending time on his boat, “Attitude Adjustment” with his wife was his greatest pleasure. Walleye fishing, pleasure cruising to Port Stanley and being on the dock at Geneva State Park Marina was his life.

Paul was always there for anyone who needed his advice or assistance. He achieved his captain’s course license in the fall of 2010 in hopes to someday commission boats for delivery through the Great Lakes and Intercoastal Waters of the Atlantic.

Paul is survived by his wife of 24 years, Virginia (Henik) Duncan; his father-in-law, Andrew Henik of Boardman; his stepmother, Dee Duncan and her companion, Stan Baker of New Jersey; two brothers, Ricky Duncan and Jose Govea of California; and his mother of Texas; his father, Paul N. Duncan Sr., preceded him in 2001.

His wife, Virginia would like to pass on heartfelt personal thanks to his dearest friend, George Krembreak, who was with him when he died, as well as Wayne Sr., Wayne Jr., Dean, Matt and Adam all of whom rushed to his side when his emergency call was dispatched.

Calling hours will be Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Fabrizio Funeral Home, 619 E. Indianola Ave. in Youngstown, and Saturday from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. at the funeral home.

Services will be at St. James Church in Boardman Park on Saturday at 10 a.m.
