David Luther Duncan, age 69 of the Buffalo Community in Oneida, TN, passed away on Sunday, June 20, 2021, at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center. Born December 31, 1951, in Scott County, TN, he was the son of the late Rev. Luther and Gertie Acres Duncan.
David was saved and professed his hope in the Lord in 2004. He had a beautiful testimony of being saved in the woods while on a dozer, …just him and the Lord. David loved the Lord and all of his family, and his biggest desire was for all of his family and friends to be saved. He worried that some of his family are not saved and wouldn’t make it to Heaven, and he didn’t want to be separated for eternity. He loved his music family, his friends, and his Masonic brothers with all his heart, and was very dedicated to them. And he was an avid dog lover.
His children and grandchildren were the light of his life. He was a kind and gentle man and was honest in all things, knowing that as you do unto others, so the Lord would do unto you.
In addition to his parents, David was preceded in death by his grandparents: Melvin (Pop) and Susie Roberts Duncan, and David and Martha Watson Acres; siblings: Melbert Akers, Sue Duncan Staten, James Milford Duncan; nephews: Joey Bond, Jeffrey Kidd, James “Bubby” Holt, and Melbert Junior Akers.
David is survived by his children: Stephanie Ellis and husband Jody, Tina Miller, Tonya Eads and Stacy Goodman; grandkids: Dallas Jeffers, Isaac Eads, Damion Eads, Jeffrey Goodman, E. J. Goodman, Caleb Goodman, Tyler Ellis, Luke Ellis, Jacob Ballard, Talita Marie Miller and Morgan Miller; siblings: Joe L. Duncan of Oneida, Joshua and wife Bonnie of Indiana, Easter Toler of Oneida, Ann Kidd of Oneida, June Toomey and husband Dan of Oklahoma, Lynn Fornash of Oneida, and Mary Hall of Oneida; sister-in-law: Freda Akers of Ohio; brother-in-law: Robert Staten of Oneida; as well as many other family members and friends.
