Duane Tabinski Death, Obituary – We are all deeply saddened by the passing of our friend. I have known him for more than 15 years and am grateful to have been able to visit Belize and spend some time with him and Kristen there. Since then, Duane Tabinski has joined my band and I on numerous occasions throughout the years, performing with us at Christmas performances, shows around the United States, and serving as our sound person in Belize for our Festival. Our first collaboration took place many years ago in Sturgis.
If you knew Duane, you would have known that he had a kind heart. If you are able, we would appreciate a donation.On the 30th of June, 2023, we said goodbye to a wonderful man named Duane Tabinski. The sudden and devastating news of his demise has caused everyone to be in a state of shock, and as a result, an exceptional amount of affection has been shown toward his wife, Kristin, and his family.
While she is working with the loss, she has come to the understanding that having his family in Nashville for his celebration of life seems like an extremely difficult task from a logistical standpoint. The members of Duane’s family, most particularly his children, will be required to make the trip from Canada to the United States with very little time to get ready.
The financial toll of their visit will be enormous; this includes the price of travel, housing, and lost pay; in some situations, it will also include the cost of obtaining permission to travel across the border. I am writing this letter on behalf of Kristin to beg for your aid in ensuring that all of his family members are able to attend the memorial service in Nashville to honour him without the added burden of stressing over how they will pay for the journey.
Kristin has promised that she will use any leftover money to take care of the family that Duane cherished so much and to make sure that Duane’s grandchildren can continue to follow their ambitions even after dad is gone.
The cash will also be utilized as a safety net in the event that an emergency situation occurs that might have an impact on the grandchildren (for example, their automobile breaking down or having a medical issue). Duane adored his grandchildren and would have done everything in his power to provide them with the best possible opportunities in life.
We ask that you give whatever you are able to in order to assist us in honouring Duane and carrying on his legacy of kindness and affection.
