Duane was born in Mauston, Wisconsin, and moved to Waukesha County in 1956. He attended Catholic Memorial High School and received a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration.
Duane served in the US army for 3 years, stationed in Korea and Germany. He became a firefighter for the Waukesha Fire Department. He was also a mechanic in his spare time for a racecar team for a number of years.
He initially ran for County Board Supervisor in 1998 because the former supervisor in his district, Ed Schultz, was not running for re-election and recruited Duane to run for the position.
