Jerry Gwynn Duncan


LEASBURG ­--- Jerry Gwynn Duncan, 79, of Leasburg, died on Tuesday, May 10, 2022. Born in Caswell County, he was the son of the late Richard Thomas Duncan, Sr. and Irene Thelma Lunsford Duncan. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his wife, Gertie Frances Kendrick Duncan.

 Surviving are his three children: Sheri Gwynn Duncan Van Horn and husband, Steven of Semora, Jerry Gwynn Duncan II and Kaylin Troy Duncan both of Leasburg; two brothers: Carl Dean Duncan of Semora and Richard (Bonnie) Duncan, Jr. of Roxboro; one sister: Sue Duncan Clayton of Leasburg; four grandchildren: Jailyn Mattos, Morgan Mattos, Mallory Mattos and Blake Duncan.

 Mr. Duncan retired as a contractor working for Piedmont Maintenance and Services of Roxboro, working at the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company in Danville, Virginia.  Upon retirement, Mr. Duncan enjoyed spending time in the outdoors. Daddy rabbit was an avid fisherman and hunter, taking his wife and family on many camping trips across North Carolina and beyond. He could often be found fishing off the piers at North Carolina beaches or on the shores of White Lake and Willow Oak. Mr. Duncan was known as someone who could fix anything; being the ultimate go-to person for family and friends needing repair for their air conditioners, lawn mowers, cars, and just about everything. Mr. Duncan looked forward to picking up his grandchildren from the school bus in his famous red golf cart and taking them for a special treat. All that knew “Papa” will remember him for his humor, hunting and fishing stories, love for nature, especially his birds and birdfeeders in his yard, and just spending time tinkering around the house. He loved everybody that he met and he had such a quick and witty personality that was infectious to everyone. All of his friends and family will remember him for his sunny disposition. He will be missed by all that knew him.

Honoring Mr. Duncan’s wishes, no service will be held. Mr. Duncan will be buried in the Leasburg Community Cemetery along with his wife, Gertie Kendrick Duncan. Condolences may be sent to
