Obituary for Roy Lamar (Duke) Abel, II.

Roy Lamar (Duke) Abel, II, 53, died October 1, 2022 at St. Dominics surrounded by his family. A graveside service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, October 8, 2022, at Harland’s Creek Cemetery in Lexington.

Duke was born on July 7, 1969, in Natchez, to the late Roy Lamar Abel, I and Marilyn Hudson Abel. Duke attended Magee High School where, as a member of the football team, he won a state championship. He graduated from Pearl High School.

He worked for his family business, Turnkey Service as a furniture installer most of his adult life.

Every thing Duke did was big. He laughed big, worked hard (and played even harder), he loved fully, and fiercely defended the things he believed in. Anyone who spent much time with Duke believed that their favorite things were his favorite things, because connecting to people was so important to him. Duke never met a woman he didn't see beauty in.

Duke is predeceased by his father, Roy Lamar Abel, I. He is survived by his mother, Marilyn Hudson Abel; longtime partner, Glenda Wallace; brothers, Jay Abel (Mary Helen) and Hudson Abel; and nephews, Hugh Parker Abel and John Hudson Abel.
