James Patrick Duncan, known as Jim to his friends, was born to James Don and Patricia Ann Duncan in Kansas City, MO.  Jim was a local Drexel entrepreneur who owned both a local automotive repair business and liquor store.  He has also worked during that time as a machinist building racing engines for regional shops in the area.  Jim has worked in construction, tile setting, sales and advertising and even as a cook and a dishwasher when needed to make ends meet.  Even with all that experience the thing he was best at was taking care of others, especially his children, and just about any other kid that wandered through the front door.  He cared for the people in and around his life and has done without himself so others could have something, most of them never knowing his own sacrifice.  Those that knew him best were with him as he passed offering all of the support they could to ease him through his journey.  If he ever wondered if people loved and cared for him the way he loved and cared for others, his questions were answered during the final weeks of his life.  His children did him proud.

Jim was Preceded in passing by his Father, James Don Duncan, Grandfathers John C. Duncan and John Vogt, Grandmothers Beulah J. Hoffman and Elsie M. Duncan. He is survived By His Mother, Patricia Ann O’Gara, 81, of Shawnee, Kansas, his Brother, John “Andy” Duncan, 56, of Gardner, Kansas, Sons; Jason James Duncan, 39, of Yakima, Washington and David Patrick Duncan, 31, Of Drexel, MO.  Daughters; Tannis Receene Duncan, 38, of Harrisonville, Mo,  Jennifer Danielle Fink, 32, and Stefani Ann Duncan, 30, both from Drexel, MO, and Honorary Daughter Leah Martin of Drexel, MO.  9 Grandchildren; Mercury and Topaz Brewster, Danika, Hendrix, and Koby Duncan, Claire and Cole Fink, and Deacon and Jaylen Martin.
