The death of Kynan Duke

It is with sadness and a sense of bewilderment that I have to tell you that Kynan Duke passed away yesterday.

Many of you will know Kynan from our Monday night meetings. He was a regular fixture, with scarf around his neck and cigarette in hand, a lopsided grin and a friendly ‘hello’ for everyone.

For those of you who knew him well, his father, Collin, can be reached by ringing Kynan’s mobile. Our thoughts of course go out to his family at this time.

Kynan’s funeral service will be held on Monday.
Date: Monday 1st September 2008
Time: 10:30am
Location: South Chapel, Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park, 12 Military Road, Matraville.

The wake follows at 11:15am, 300m from the Chapel.

Today – 27th August 2008 – would have been Kynan’s 21st birthday.

Like all of you, I am shocked, for he was a dear friend to us all.

Kynan, you will be remembered.

Kynan Peter Knox Duke (1987-2008)

  1. In my country, long ago
    Woman would braid their hair to show
    Their mourning for a life that’s spent,
    And in doing so lament.
    Let me from this tradition borrow,
    An expression wherein I bind my sorrow.
    And when they see me, let them say:
    “We know –
    She braids her hair for him today.”

  2. Kynan’s funeral will be held at 10.30am this monday coming, at ‘South Chapel’ of eastern suburbs crematorium, located at 12 military rd matraville. Following this the wake will be held at 11.15, very near to the crematorium (300mtrs walk away).
    Please advise anyone else who may have known Kynan.

    -Nick.
