BRAZIL, Paul "Duane", Greenwood, NS - It is with broken hearts that we announce the sudden death of the most wonderful, loving husband and truly amazing Dad that God ever gave to this world. Duane died tragically on July 13, 2006 in a Cormorant helicopter accident in Canso, NS, age 39 years. He was born in Gander and raised in Botwood, NL.

After high school he moved to St. John's and in 1990 he joined the Canadian Forces. Upon graduation from his training he was awarded the Commandant's Shield for top recruit. Duane spent 9 years as an Instrument Electrician technician in Greenwood working on the Aurora aircraft until 1999 when he transferred to Search and Rescue as a Flight Engineer. In 2000 Duane and his family were transferred to Gander NL. That same year Duane lost his older brother Gary in a Coast Guard Helicopter accident. Duane's love of SAR and devotion to helping others took him through that and he always said "if I can bring one more person home, then that mother won't have to go through what my mom did." During his 4 years at 103 SQN in Gander, Duane helped save many souls. He truly loved what he did and believed in the SAR motto "So that others may live." In 2004 Duane and his family were transferred back to Greenwood where he continued his SAR career at 413 SQN.

Duane was a devoted loving husband and proud father. His family and their happiness was always first and foremost. Duane loved life and lived everyday to the fullest, always with a smile. Duane was predeceased by his infant daughter Cory Allison in 1994 and his brother Gary Jerome in 2000. He will be sadly missed, forever loved and never forgotten by his girls, devoted and loving wife Candy (my buddy), two beautiful very special daughters Erin 15 years and Sara 11 years (his pals). Duane also leaves his loving parents Gerald and Yvonne Brazil of Torbay NL; mother and father in-law Bonnie and Al Smith of St. John's NL; sister Debbie (Dennis Insley, nephew Kristopher); brother Rodney (friends Lori Beck and boys); sister-in-law Denise Brazil (nephew Ryan, niece Karlee); sister-in-law Vicki Strange (nephews Richard and Ryan); brother-in-law Jim Kavanagh (Joan, nephews Jacob and Devon, niece Jenna); brother-in-law Cory Smith (Cindy, nieces Stephanie and Allison, nephew and godchild Tyler); a large circle of aunts, uncles, cousins, very special friends Mike, Judy and Brogan Janke; the Villeneuve Family; the Sutton Family; the Jackman Family; the Viditos; all the bingo bags and their families; his SAR buddies and many co-workers and friends near and far, much too numerous to mention.

Visitation will also be held from 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, July 19 at Caul's Funeral Home, St. John's, Newfoundand.
