Obituary for Duane LaGesse

This is the story of Duane G. LaGesse. Duane (Dad) was a wonderful man who was loved, is missed, and will always be cherished. Our “Dad” was special and amazing - he was always there for his family. He was called “Paw pa” by his grandchildren - they always wanted him to play with them. He also touched others’ lives in his own special way.
His story begins on November 21, 1941. He was the oldest child to Roy and Dorothy LaGesse. He had one sister and two brothers. He was born in Kankakee where he spent his childhood and most of his adult life. Always a hard worker, he worked and retired from Mobile Chemical - now known as Valspar.
He enjoyed watching game shows, listening to music, eating fudge bars, and reminising with family and friends.
Duane had six children, Donald LaGesse, Dana (Roy) Lee, all of Golconda; and Joseph LaGesse, of Kankakee.
Loved ones who led the path for Duane (our Dad) were Roy and Dorothy LaGesse (his father and mother); three daughters, Megan Lagesse, Dorothy Geisler (Dody), and Amy McClanhan; two brothers, Roy (Junior) and Ronald LaGesse; and one sister, Darla O’Hara.
We love and miss you, Dad.
A memorial service will be held Thursday, July 25, 2019, from 4:00 to 6:00 PM at Community Independent Baptist Church in Rosiclare.
