Patrick Duane Duzik

October 16, 1956 – August 3, 2020

Patrick Duane Duzik was born October 16, 1956 in Craig, CO to parents Andrew and Joan Duzik. He grew up in Craig playing basketball and working at Jerry’s Texaco gas station. It was working there that he found his love for being a mechanic and chose that as a vocation. He attended Denver Automotive and Diesel College completing certifications in automotive and diesel technology. In 1977, he married Terri Brown and two children were born – Stephanie Duzik and Patrick Duzik. In 1987 he married Betty Ann (Hanzel) and gained a step-daughter – Christina (Louthan) Rhyne. Pat worked over 25 years for MCSD Transportation then retired and opened his own shop. He had a love for restoring vehicles and helping others. He was a very active member of his church and loved and served the Lord. Pat was a volunteer leader for the 4-H program and shared his skills in leathercraft and mechanics with many kids over 20 plus years serving as a leader. He loved his grandkids and was ever present supporting them as their biggest fan. Pat was preceded in death by his parents Andy and Joan Duzik. He is survived by his wife of almost 33 years Betty Ann, daughter Stephanie Duzik , son Patrick Duzik (Johanna), and step-daughter Christina Rhyne (Greg), grandchildren Tommi Honaker, Pepper Rhyne, Jolene Rhyne, Blake Duzik, Alice Duzik and Riley Duzik, and sisters Carol Whicker (Dale) and Gail Cervera (Bobby) and six nieces. A celebration of Pat’s life will be held Saturday, August 15, 2020 at New Creation Church in Craig, CO. A meal will follow at the Fairgrounds Pavilion.
