Duane was born in Richmond and grew up in Farming, the son of Leonard and Leona (Ramler) Dingman. He graduated from Albany High School. “Shaggy” married DiAnne Coleman on September 23, 1989 but later divorced. Duane was one of the fortunate ones who always loved his job, driving semi. He especially loved his road trips with his son, Tyler and his two dogs, Freddie and Lexi. In Duane’s spare time he enjoyed spending time with his best friend, Dennis Nordmann, motorcycling and camping. When not driving semi he took pride in driving one of his many Pontiac Firebirds.
Survivors include his son, Tyler; brothers and sisters, Allen (Athleen) Dingman of Freeport, RoseAnn (Duane) Bauer of Waite Park, MaryJane (Craig) Treat of Mpls, MaryLou Wallis of Mpls, Marlin (Rita) Dingman of St. Joseph, and many nieces and nephews.
