Class of 84 Vidalia High. Mr. Duck was a firm but fair assistant principal during my time as a student at VHS. Even though his stature was big, he had the heart of a teddy bear. He cared for all students and was a big influence on all our lives. I have so many fond memories. Prayers to his family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Mr. Duck was my 9th grade Science teacher and high school vice principal. He was excellent in both roles, and worthy of respect and admiration. He influenced countless lives. I also knew him from church, where he served as a faithful Christian man.I pray that God grants his family comfort and peace during this time of mourning. I am confident that he has been welcomed into the arms of his loving Savior. Rest in peace, Mr. Duck.
