Duncan and Dow shared many similar interests, including airplanes, golf, animals, driving golf carts, attending Dungeness Community Church, rooting for the Seahawks, and their love for Mary Jane Dow Duncan.
When Duncan proposed to Dow’s sister, Mary Jane, she told him, “David and I are a forfeit. He will live with me one day.
Dow lived with the Duncan family, coming to worship his late brother-in-law, family members said. Mary Jane said she remembers the relationship between her husband and brother as “sweet” and “wonderful”.
According to Mary Jane, Dow enjoyed the classes, dances, being part of the Snappy Players theater group and other activities offered by Clallam Mosaic. It was this connection and commitment that inspired family conversations about how to support the organization, which ultimately led Mary Jane to create the Bob Cup Golf Tournament in Memoriam.
Dow was a shining presence at the annual fundraising tournament, often providing artwork for the silent auction table, tournament organizers said. This year, Dow and Duncan will be remembered by sponsors, donors and golfers coming together to support their friends and neighbors living with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
