Obituary for Cleven Duncan
Devoted Husband, Father, Grandfather and Friend.

Cleven Duncan, age 88, resided in Milltown, Wisconsin. He fell asleep in death on Saturday, April 23, 2016 at St. Croix Regional Medical Center in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin.

Cleven was born August 1, 1927 in Liberty, Mississippi to Robert and Lula Duncan. He grew up on a small farm with his parents and three younger siblings.

Throughout his life, Cleven's strong desire to work with his hands led him to take the initiative to learn various skills including auto mechanics, auto body repair, carpentry and welding to name just a few. Cleven was a devoted family man. He loved music, gardening, animals, cooking and barbequing, fishing, hunting and he enjoyed traveling. He had a jovial personality and an undeniable sense of humor that brought joy and laughter to all who had the privilege of knowing him.

Cleven was joined in marriage to his wife, Linda on January 26, 1974 in Long Beach, California.

After asserting much sincere time and effort in the study of the Holy Scripture, in November of 2006, Cleven became dedicated and baptized as a member of the congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses in Milltown, WI. He looked forward to the promises of God and enjoying the hope for the future as recorded in Revelations 21: 3-5 which reads, "With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: "Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." And the one seated on the throne said: "Look! I am making all things new." Also he says: "Write, for these words are faithful and true."

Cleven is preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Lula Duncan; two brothers, Simon and Carl Evan; and his son, Mannix.

Cleven is survived by his wife, Linda Duncan; sister, Virginia Patterson; children, Maryann Ramsey, Cleven Duncan Jr. (Lindsay), Roy Duncan (Lynn), Mickie Blackmon (Steven), Jimmy Studie, Chiree Mielke (Nathan), and Elizabeth Duncan; grandchildren, Trenesi Ramsey, Denisa Isaac, Brandi Pittman, Bryce Duncan, Simeon Duncan, Kodi Duncan, Lexin Duncan, Brittany Duncan, Sevoy Duncan, Jory Duncan, Mannix Duncan Jr., Reignie Jahnke (Charles), Tayler Turner, Teahra Turner, Bailey Adams (Jason), Amber Studie, Faith Christensen, Katie Gray, Dakota Wheeler, Tehya Studie, Aiyanna Vondelinde, Shawnee Mielke, Johnathan Mielke and Elijah Duncan; twelve great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; loving caregiver, Teresa Studie-Goulet; many cousins, nieces, nephews and countless friends.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, April 29th, 2:00 p.m. at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Milltown, WI (228 1st Avenue East) with lunch and fellowship to immediately follow at the Milltown Community Center.
