Duane S. Mason, age 59, of Willowick went to be with the
Lord on February 7, 2019 surrounded by his loving family
and many close friends. He was preceded in death by his
parents, Ronnie and Patricia Mason, and his only brother
Darrell L. Mason. His immediate family has now been
unified once again in heaven. Duane is survived by his
devoted wife of 35 years, Karen (Scharler) Mason, his two
beloved children, Jessica Tramontozzi (Joseph) of Mentor,
and Alexander Mason of Osaka, Japan, very special PaPa to
Austin, Hailey, and Leonardo Tramontozzi. He also leaves
behind his beloved nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Duane worked for the Lake Metro parks System before
getting ill, where he thoroughly enjoyed working outdoors
in nature everyday with "the best crew" ever.

Duane was extremely creative and artistic. He loved to work
with his hands to create sculptures made of many different
kinds of exotic hard woods. He also sang and played guitar
in his earlier years, writing many beautiful songs and
poems.

Duane was baptized in Christ as a teen, and committed his
whole life to knowing the Lord on a personal basis. He
specifically devoted his last years on earth to "advertising"
his personal relationship with his Jesus. By adorning himself
with the many religious hats and crosses he owned out in
public, he would pray it would spark meaningful
conversations with people in need. Duane had a very
gentle, kind, sweet spirit and was a loving devoted servant
of God. He will truly be missed by all that knew him.

In his free time, Duane loved to attend his men's bible study
group on Friday mornings at Denny's. He also loved to have
lunch with friends and family members, play chess, and play
his video games.

A memorial service to celebrate Duane's life is scheduled for
Saturday, February 16th at the Prince of Peace church on 306 in
Mentor. The family will accept visitors from 2-4pm, service
will start at 4pm.
