Terry “Old Man” Lee Duncan tragically died on January 28, 2019 on US 131 in Michigan just north of Fife Lake. I was able to visit with the family at this tribute site while I was driving there on May 25, 2019. As I was driving south on US 131 I saw a car stopped with several people standing alongside the road looking at a tribute site. I turned around, pulled in behind them and walked up to them. I was not sure what to expect but I was able to share with them how I had created this web site in order for them to post pictures of their site and to make it safer to visit. It was a very uncomfortable moment but I am glad that I stopped.
I have a passion for eliminating roadway accidents after having seen so much pain and suffering caused by them around the world. My background is in mechanical engineering where I began my career with Ford Motor Company in Dearborn, Michigan working in Body Engineering. I remember the first test crash I watched and how sick my stomach felt when the car crashed into the concrete wall. This memory is forever "cemented" into my mind. As an aircraft pilot I was always focused upon safety procedures, and this way of thinking has made its way into my research into automotive safety. In a desire to end traffic accidents I created this Roadside Tribute site and manage a sister site RoadsideMemorialTributes.com web sites. I also created and manage the Christians for Christ Ministries https://www.christiansforchrist.org web site. My daytime job is to manage and implement the digital marketing programs for User Friendly Consulting, Inc.
