Daniel D. “Duke” Dukauskas, 59, of West Scranton, died Sunday, at the Gardens of Scranton. Born in Scranton, he was a son of the late Joseph J. and Anna Platus Dukauskas. Dan was a 1978 graduate of West Scranton High School and served his country as a Sergeant in the United States Air Force. He was employed as a forklift operator in the local book manufacturing factories until his illness and was a member of Teamsters Local 229. He was a member of the former St. Michael’s Lithuanian Roman Catholic Church on Jackson Street, West Scranton. Danny was a loving and kind son, brother and uncle who enjoyed sports, golfing, music and trivia. If you were in his presence, chances are you were laughing.
