Willie Thomas Duncan, 70, of Coatesville, PA, peacefully departed this life on August 17, 2021. He was born in Thomasville, NC, on July 15, 1951. He was the youngest son of eight children to the late Eugene and Sarah Huntley Duncan.
Willie was educated in the Davidson County school system in Lexington, NC. He sought out his passion for providing for others and began working in the hospitality industry. Willie’s various occupations included parking attended, janitorial services, and cook. He was employed by Safe Harbor of Chester County, West Chester, PA until his health declined.
Willie was erudite – reading books, newspapers, current events, and the arts. He was also an audiophile and enjoyed listening to all genres of music, especially jazz.
God’s gracious gift to Willie was his heart of service. Willie used his gift to serve God as a faithful Deacon at Greater Deliverance Church International in Coatesville, PA. He held several positions, including but not limited to member of the Pastor’s Aid, member of the Finance Committee, Janitor, Landscaper, and many more. Willie loved being a caretaker in and out of the church.
His loving memory is cherished by his surviving seven siblings, Clara Lee Mickles of Clinton, MD; Apostle Bobby G. Duncan (Stephanie) of Coatesville, PA; Mildred A. Duncan-Vann (Leslie) of Thomasville, NC; Curtis Duncan (Diane) of Hagerstown, MD; Jimmy Duncan; Sarah D. Duncan; Sharon A.
