Duane Peter Schwingle

July 22, 1994 — December 28, 2021

Duane Peter Schwingle, a man of many trades passed away unexpectedly on December 28th, 2021 at the young age of 27. Duane was born in Rochester, MN on July 22, 1994 to Jason Schwingle and Julie Fern. Duane was a caring and loving person. Many would have considered him quiet, however as soon as you got him talking about Sasquatch, Mandela Effect, Aliens and UFOs (basically anything the average person wouldn't believe in) the term quiet was no longer fitting. Duane spoke for hours on end with all of his knowledge and love for conspiracy theories. One of Duane's favorite activities was hunting with his dad, along with siblings and the non-blood family members he gained at "Deer Camp". Duane was an outdoor enthusiast and enjoyed fishing, hunting, and adventuring. Duane also had a love for his video games. Duane will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all who knew him. Duane is survived by his parents; Jason (Rebecca) Schwingle, Julie (Chuck) Fern, Grandparents; Pete (Karen) Schwingle, Sarah (Ross) Cameron, Greg and LuAnn Hoff, Vern and Ione Speer, Susan Fern, Adrienne Milne. Siblings; Courtney Schwingle, Matthew (Danette) Hoff, Payton Schwingle, Abbi Fern, Corey Fern. Nieces; Jaylen King, Quinn Hoff. Nephew; Treyson Schwingle, Many Aunts, Uncles, and Extended Family, Girlfriend; Phallis Seng. Preceded in Death by his Uncles; Robert Highet, Aunt; Alicia Schwingle, Maternal Grandfather; Duane Highet, Pets; Buddy and Jessie.
