Duncan worked for Hot Stuff Pizza and Schwans early in his career and then became a stay at home dad where he made the whole world run for the Tilton family.

Duncan had a passion for all things Texas, the Dallas Cowboys and most importantly his family. He loved nothing more than being with his kids, watching them play sports, and watching them grow up. He loved his dalmatian dogs Sam and Leo and was known around Ankeny for walking his dogs. He attended Prairie Ridge Church and was a man of faith.

He is survived by his wife Michelle, daughter Rylee (20) and son Drew (17).
