Duvall, Charles David Duvall, Robert Wayne Duvall and Gary Alan Duvall; a stepson, Thomas Cross; a stepdaughter, Susan Inglesby; and a host of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

A celebration of his life will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 22, 2019, at Line United Methodist Church, 18725 Line Church Road, Delmar, Del.
