Durwood "DD" Duane Carey

Born: 5/26/1923, Lemoyne, Nebraska
Death: 7/4/2008, Moab, Utah

DD (Durwood Duane) Carey was born to father Shirley and mother Irene Carey on May 26, 1923 in Lemoyne, Nebraska. DD loved his wife Barbara; he loved his son Jerry; and his daughters Sue, Terri, Diane , Stacie; and he loved his son-in-laws Alan, David and Timmy and all his grandchildren and great-grandchildren DD loved going to deer hunting camp, and sitting around “shooting the bull” with the guys. He loved bird watching and telling tall tales, most of them true. He was in the Navy and fought in Pearl Harbor having his ship bombed and watched many other ships sink and men die. He saw oceans and island and many places and told many stories of what he saw. As a young man he lived in Yachats, Oregon and worked on fishing boats. He then returned to Nebraska, the place of his birth, finished school and started working for the pipeline, following that job to Colorado where he met Barbara, then on to Moab where he lived from 1956 to his death on July 4, 2008 at the age of 85.

DD had a good life with many friends and was able to do most of the things he wanted to do. He was loved by many and will be missed by us all.

The family of DD Carey would like to thank the girls of Hospice, CNS, and Dr. Rouzer for making his last time with us more comfortable, and everyone who helped us through this time. God Bless you all.

At DD’s request cremation has taken place and a private family service will be held at a later date.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
