Duane Harold LeBarron

Palmyra:  Passed away peacefully on Thursday, June 7, 2018 at the age of 54.  Duane was born on March 2, 1964 to the late Geraldine "Ebert" and Harold F. LeBarron and was predeceased by his sister Darlene LeBarron Wirth.  He is survived by his nieces, Shalaine Wirth of Macedon and Makaila Wirth of Canandaigua; nephew, Nicholas Wirth of Macedon; extended family, many friends and his beloved family at the First Baptist Church of Macedon.

Duane grew up in Walworth and was a 1982 graduate of the Palmyra-Macedon High School.  He attended Onondaga Community College in Syracuse, NY, where he majored in music. He is a former cook, and a great one. Duane went back to school and obtained his bachelors degree in Social Work from the College at Brockport.  He was ready to continue his graduate studies at Brockport/Nazareth when he became seriously ill.  His dream was to become a substance abuse counselor but was sadly interrupted by his battle with cancer.  Duane was an active member of the First Baptist Church of Macedon; where he was much loved by the congregation.  His strength and cheerfulness, even during his darkest hours, in addition, his beautiful tenor voice, caring attitude and indomitable spirit will be missed.  Lord, we thank you for blessing us with Duane.

All are invited to join in a celebration of Duane's life, on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 11AM at the First Baptist Church of Macedon, 58 Main Street, Macedon, NY 14502.  In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy in Duane's memory may be directed to the Open Door Mission, or the Palmyra Community Center.  To light a candle, send a condolence, or upload a photo, please visit the tribute wall at
