Mr. Bill E. Duncan, age 89 years, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away on Wednesday, November 25, 2020 at his home surrounded by his loving family.

Bill was born on November 23, 1931 in Jefferson City, Mo., the son of Herbert E. and Mamie (Kroger) Duncan. He was married on November 8, 1968 in Jefferson City, Mo. to Myrene Bogg Englehart and he inherited six Englehart children.

A lifelong resident of the Central Missouri area, Bill was a 1949 graduate of Jefferson City High School.

After high school, Bill enlisted into the United States Military in the Marine Corps. In 1951, he was honorable discharged. He then joined the Missouri State Highway Patrol Training division, while continuing his education at the University of Missouri, majoring in Law Enforcement. He graduated from Central Missouri State University in 1976 with a Masters Degree in Public Administration and Criminal Justice Administration. Bill then served as the Director of the Sheriff’s Association and the Director of Veteran’s Affairs. In 1980, Bill began his employment with the Department of Corrections as a Probation and Parole Board and retired in 1991.

Bill enjoyed a long and fulfilled life that centered around his family. We have always said, “There will be stars in his crown for marrying a lady with six children!” He loved to golf and was a member of Meadow Lake Country Club. He also loved to hunt, fish, play guitar and dance. He enjoyed spending time at the summer home at the Lake of the Ozarks, fishing trips to Lake Taneycomo, traveling throughout the U. S. and Europe.

Survivors include: his loving wife of 52 years, Myrene; children: Lea Englehart Morris (David) of Melbourne Beach, Fl., David Englehart (Jodi) of St. Peters, Mo., Neal Englehart (Debbie) of Ashland, Mo., Paul Englehart of Jefferson City, Mo., Diann Englehart Bax Goins (John) of Camdenton, Mo., and Julie Englehart Distler Carey (Pat) of Jefferson City, Mo; nine grandchildren; and eleven great-grandchildren.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents.

A private family gathering and interment will be held at Riverview Cemetery at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to Hospice Compassus and Palliative Care, 600 Monroe Street, Suite 100, Jefferson City, Missouri 65101

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Freeman Mortuary.

I am so very sorry to hear of Bill's passing. I worked with him when he served as a Board Member with Probation and Parole. Bill was always professional and supportive of his co-workers. I had a great deal of respect for him and he treated everyone with the same respect and dignity. My condolences to the family. Mary Ann Reeter

To the family:
I will always remember Mr. Duncan with respect and reverence as a fair man who gave fair judgments on his parole and revocation hearings when he was a Parole Board member for Corrections. He used to scare me to death whenever he first came to work there because he always commanded respect by his persona. Over the years, I got over being scared of him. But he was always Mr. Duncan to me even when I saw him at Schulte's IGA after his retirement. He told me I could call him Bill now that he was retired; but to me it just didn't feel right to call him by his first name. He was special! I don't feel that way about a lot of people. I assume that the Marines and his work in Missouri Highway Patrol taught him the authority thing. I always liked Bill. May your family receive comfort in God's hands through your sorrow. Remember those happy times and forget any bad ones. As long as you remember him in your thoughts and your hearts, he will be with you.
