Letter: Not forgotten

Duke is gone, but he’ll “never leave.” He was my first friend when I moved to Aspen in 1970, when he was the bartender at the Red Onion. I’ll always cherish my many great times with him as we all experienced them through the years. We thought every night was New Year’s Eve!

He took Aspen locals on a great experience. He wanted to be sure he would be missed. He sure is!

Thanks, Duke.
