John E. Duker Jr. Financial consultant

September 23, 1991

Services for John Edward Duker Jr., a retired financial consultant and former Baltimorean, will be at 4 p.m. Saturday at Baldwin Memorial United Methodist Church at Indian Landing Road and Route 178 in Millersville.

Mr. Duker, who was 80, died of a heart attack Wednesday while vacationing with his wife in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

Mr. Duker and his wife, the former Barbara Weatherly, had lived in Sebastian, Fla., since he retired in 1985, but they spent RTC summers at Arden on the Severn River near Annapolis.

A Baltimore native and the grandson of Dr. Harry Baldwin Gant, )) an Anne Arundel County physician, he grew up in Guilford and attended the Gilman School. He received a bachelor's degree in geology from Princeton University in 1934.

Mr. Duker sold life insurance for the Prudential Insurance Co. in Mountain Lakes, N.J., from 1940 to 1960. He then opened his own financial consulting business there.

He served in the Army during World War II and retired from the military as a major in the Army Reserve.

In addition to his wife, Mr. Duker is survived by a daughter, Barbara Macmillan of Denville, N.J.; two sons, John E. Duker III of Reston, Va., and Steven G. Duker of Baltimore; five sisters, Sue Bayley of Crownsville, Libby Price of Houston, Marjory McMickle of Madison, Wis., and Eleanor Ehle and Helen Hubbard, both of Baltimore; and four grandchildren.

The family suggests that donations be made to the American Heart Association.
