Rev. Gregory Floyd Duncan, age 69, of Durham, NC, died on Sunday morning, August 22, 2021, at Duke Hospice/Hock Family Pavilion. Born in Eustis, FL, he was one of four boys born to the late Joseph Douglas Duncan, Sr., and Ada Virginia Duncan. Greg was a graduate of Tavares High School and The Citadel. He received his Master of Divinity from Duke Divinity School and his Master of Social Work from Florida State University. His wife of forty years, Susan Nutter Duncan, survives him, as do his two children, Matthew Gregory Duncan and Katie Jean Fain (Zachary Dean Fain). Greg’s three brothers, Douglas Duncan, Jr. (Patti), Scott Duncan, Bruce Duncan, and their families mourn his loss.
Greg lived a life of service to others by becoming a United Methodist minister, who worked in a variety of appointments to help those in need. He was the first associate pastor for Melbourne United Methodist Church, a lobbyist for social justice issues at Florida Impact, the Chaplain at The Florida United Methodist Children’s Home, the Florida Area Representative for Heifer Project International, the Associate Dean of Student Services at Duke Divinity School, and an administrator at The Center for Child and Family Health. His passions included: religion, Duke sports, music, history, movies, and politics. He will be sorely missed by those who loved him, but we rejoice in knowing he is now resting in the loving arms of Jesus. His favorite Bible verse, Romans 8:38–39, comforts us: “For I am convinced that nothing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
A private celebration of his life will take place later this year.
