SALEM - Duane Charles McCaslin, 75, died Sunday, May 28, 2023, at Salem Regional Medical Center.
Duane was born September 19, 1947, in Ellwood City, Pa., the son of the late Charles and Helen McCaslin.
Duane was a veteran who served in the Army. He had various jobs through the years retiring in Sarasota, Fla., as a cement truck driver. He was known as the “Cool Uncle Duane” by his nieces and nephews, who he would go with to deer hunting camp. He would take them fishing and cook the fish they caught up on the grill. Some would say he was the life of the party where you would find him with an ice-cold Budweiser and a cigarette cracking a joke or two.
Duane came to Salem in 2019 to live with his son and family, where his daughter-in-law took care of him until he was strong enough to get back on his own. The last few years have been trying but through it all he never complained. The last few months have been the worse for Duane, while he was in a nursing home for rehabilitation, he had to hear of his youngest son, Tyler, passing on January 19, 2023.
The one thing I can say for sure is that he loved his kids, grandkids, family, and friends with all he had and the best that he knew how. He was always making jokes and as his daughter-in-law always said to him, ‘you’re a funny, funny man.” He will be missed by everyone, but we are blessed he is at peace now.
Duane is survived by his son, Brian W. (Jen Jordan) McCaslin of Salem; two grandkids, Tyler Izzo and Cameron Colbert, both of Pennsylvania; and several nephews, nieces, and cousins.
Besides his parents, he was proceeded in death by his youngest son, Tyler James McCaslin; and his brothers, Tom, Jim and Terry McCaslin.
There will be no services per Duane’s request. Please send your prayers to the family through this time. Thank you to Dr. Rousher, nurses, and staff at SRMC for the great care they gave to dad the last two weeks.
