Andrew (Rod) Duncan

 January 23, 2023


Andrew (Rod) Duncan, 73, passed away on January 23rd at home in Farmers Branch, Texas.

Raised in Corvallis, Oregon, Rod was an accomplished Eagle Scout, Senior Electronics Engineer in the Navy, and enjoyed a long career as a Flight Simulator Technician until his retirement. His work allowed him to travel the world.

Rod had a joyful spirit and was known for his welcoming smile. He loved his family and spending time with his grandchildren more than anything. Rod expressed his joy through music, learning to play several instruments and calling square dancing. He enjoyed investing his time volunteering with local youth sports. Supporting healthy fun and community fed his soul. He had an incredible ability to encourage others, making them feel seen and valued for who they are. He will be remembered dearly for his open heart.

Rod is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Mary J. Duncan, daughters Cindy Anderson and Heather Hunter, sisters Bonnie Duncan and Laura Duncan, grandchildren Lauren Anderson, Dean Anderson, Dylan Bell, Logan Bell, Christian Wright, Connor Duncan, Cora Duncan, and Collin Duncan, several neices and nephews, and treasured extended family across the US and overseas. He is preceded in death by his parents Andrew and Hazel, son Andrew (Marty) Duncan, and brother Ian Duncan.

A celebration of life with military honors will be held Saturday, February 18th at 2:00pm at the North Dallas Funeral Home located at 2710 Valley View Lane, Dallas, TX 75234.

Please honor Rod’s legacy by volunteering an afternoon of your time, sharing fun and improving your own community. Send pictures!

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
