Duval worked as a tool and die maker and retired from Babcock and Wilcox after 35 years of service. After retirement, he enjoyed taking care of his home and maintaining a beautiful lawn and garden. He loved traveling across the country with his family, being on the beach, and above all, spending quality time with his girls, grandsons, sons-in-law and spoiling his precious wife Christine. Christine and Duval did everything together. They were a loving couple. As they grew old together, they maintained their love for each other and took care of each other “till death do us part.”
