Loney R. Duncan, Jr.
1932-2022

With deep sadness, we have to inform you Loney Duncan (WØGZV) passed away last Saturday.
Loney was a real gentleman, an incredible engineer and a family man. Professionally, he spent about 40 years with Collins Radio and raised to a top management position. During his career at Collins, he was involved with the development of antenna couplers, the Navy Tactical Data System, the URG II system, TACAMO and many other programs. He loved Collins and worked closely with Arthur Collins.
He was a stimulating person to be with that often switched from highly technical discussions to fun stories from his past. He was on the board of the Arthur Collins Legacy Association and the Collins Collectors Association and was a great supporter of our efforts to capture and preserve the history of Collins Radio.
We have lost a great and irreplaceable friend and a powerful mentor. We feel honored to be able to say that Loney was a close friend.
He too loved the history of the company and contributed proudly to The Collins Story.
