'In the mid 60’s I was so busy building boards I didn’t have time to come up with the ads. He had a good vision of the future and he pushed me to do double page spreads when I would say gees Duke that’ll cost a fortune ! He would say don’t worry it’ll pay off. He was looking into the future when I was just trying to get through the day. I owe him a lot.'
- Bing Copeland

Duke past away recently after a battle with cancer, and his presence will be missed. Rest in Peace Duke, your legend lives on.
