Obituary for Duane Kyle Roskoskey

Duane Kyle Roskoskey, age 63, of Grand Ledge, MI, passed away September 13, 2020. He was born May 9, 1957 in Manistee, MI, son to Mickey and Carla (Berglund) Roskoskey. Duane worked as an Engineer in the oil fields of Texas, Oklahoma, and Michigan for 9 years before working for the State of Michigan in the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) as an Engineer in the Solid Waste and Land Application Section for the past 30 years. Duane was well known for his quick wit and off-the-cuff sense of humor. He was an avid outdoorsman and hunter, harvesting over 70 deer over the past 35 years. Duane knew the best hunting spots throughout the state, though he could never seem to keep track of his trimming shears for more than one season. Always wanting to be prepared, a trip of any length with Duane (even as short as 10 minutes) would start with a stop at the gas station to load up on snacks. He loved camping in the Upper Peninsula and taking chances exploring two tracks in the family minivan instead of a proper 4-wheel drive vehicle. At home, Duane was easily entertained by a fire pit with a good source of flammable materials, working in the yard, watching action movies (or Mean Girls), and spending time with family.

Duane is survived by his wife of 39 years, Diane (Klinesmith), sons Benjamin (Katie) and Daniel, daughter Aubrey, granddaughters Felicity and Lucy; brothers Brian (Martha) and Bill (Carrie), sisters: Kellie (Ray) Rodriquez, Mikaleen (Mike) McClure and Cindy Martin. He was preceded in death by his parents.

Honoring Duane’s wishes, cremation has taken place. Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society, https://donate3.cancer.org or plant a tree in memory of Duane K.
