Bill Duke

Mr. Bill Duke (born February 26th, 1943 as "William Henry Duke, Jr.") died randomly on the highway on February 8th, 2023 (TBV) with his older sister nearby. His cause of death was assumed to be due to an age related illness. He was 79 years old when he passed.

Bill is survived by his parents, Ethel Louise Duke and William Henry Duke Sr., most recent wife Sheila Moses, his sibling, brother Yvonne Duke as well as his pet bird, Max.

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.

A funeral is scheduled for Sunday the 14th at the funeral home in Poughkeepsie. The service will commence at 9AM with a reception to follow hosted by his son at the undertaker's where refreshments will be served. All are welcome to the visitation to be held at funeral home at 11AM.

"I've studied different terms of acting, different kinds. However, I could not say that I subscribe to any particular kind of acting. I utilize what I know from real life to create my characters. Acting for me is an opportunity to really live out a number of different lives. To be able to portray those different aspects of yourself sets you free in a lot of ways. (IMDB)"
