"Ducky" was such a nice guy and had a laugh you could hear from far away.  He was one of a team of good guys who kept Parkesburg's streets in tip top shape.  Rod, Bill and Ducky were the best.  Duck could really tell the stories and make you laugh..... Gone but not forgotten.  RIP Don

The best snowplow man the borough ever had. He would take it right into your yard, taking about a 6" sliver of turf with it. The streets were passable and not just one lane. My father thought the world of him. Rest in peace!
