Asa Wyatt Duncan, 90 years young, of Christiansburg, passed away peacefully Monday, July 16, 2007 at CNRV Hospital after a long struggle with diabetes, with his family by his bedside.

He was a WW II Veteran, carrying him throughout the Pacific and earning rank of Master Sergeant. Returning home he became a farmer and a well known well driller. His love of fishing and coon hunting were on his mind throughout all his days of sickness and desire to become well again. He enjoyed his children and grandchildren and was proud to hear of them serving the Lord because he always took his family to church and to tent meetings. He never met a stranger and was willing to help anyone in need.

Preceding him in death were his parents, Wyatt Lynch and Maude Akers Duncan. Survivors include his wife, Carrie Showalter Duncan of Christiansburg; children, Robert Dale Duncan, Dennis Giles Duncan, Loretta Duncan Elkins, James Asa and wife, Linda Akers Duncan, all of Christiansburg; six grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; ten step great-grandchildren; sisters, Ethel Vaught Viers, Eula Viers Farmer and husband, Bob, Danie Viers Mannon, Inez Vaught and husband, Virgil, and Roxie Martin and husband, Roy; brother, Lawrence Duncan and wife, Janice; caregiver, George Henry Lovins; and many special friends.

Kenneth Poston. Interment will follow at the Showalter Cemetery with Military Rites by Floyd VFW Post #7854 and American Legion Post #127.
