Life Story / Obituary
Duncan Eric Tyce, age 54, passed away unexpectedly on Monday February 12, 2018. Duncan was born in Newbern, TN on July 27, 1963, son of Robert Livingston and Edith “Christine” Tyce.
He professed Christ at an early age at St. Paul Methodist Church in Newbern, TN. After moving to Racine, Duncan united with Greater St. Luke’s Baptist Church under the leadership of the late E.E. Woods. He served as a junior usher until he united Gregg Chapel where his mother attended. He remained a member until his health started to fail him under the current leadership of current Pastor David Green. Duncan graduated from Washington Park High School “Class of 1981”. An excellent car mechanic, Duncan could fix almost anything. If he wasn’t under the hood of a car you could probably find him out fishing. Duncan will be remembered for his good cooking, his green thumb, his sense of humor and practical jokes and his great love for his family.
