Professionally, Bill was a Film-Actor who was best known for his role in the wonderful movie "Commando".
When he was not working as a Film-Actor, Bill was known for his love of renovating cars and he would spend months most of his spare engrossed in it. Mr. Duke (also known as William Duke) also spent weeks visiting with his son most months when he was able. Ever since he was a boy in Poughkeepsie, New York, many of his childhood friends remember Bill as a great baseball player with fantastic practical jokes. In lieu of flowers, the Duke family asks that you make a hundred dollar donation to the Humane Society in Bill's honor.
