Verlin passed on September 20, 2022 at The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center in Gillette, Wyoming at the age of 90. With his loving spouse of 68 years and other family members close by, Verlin slipped gracefully away, to be sadly missed and fondly remembered by all who know and love him. Verlin G. Duvall was born January 16, 1932, in Gillette, Wyoming. Verlin grew up on the Duvall Family Cattle Ranch near Rozet. Verlin attended Rozet School where he played basketball and was an honor student. After graduation, Verlin worked as a mechanic and then served in the Army during the Korean War. After an honorable discharge, he married the love of his life, Judith Kimball Hatfield. They had two children: Michael and Debra. Verlin attended Sheridan College and the University of Wyoming where he received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Range and Wildlife Management. Upon college graduation, Verlin worked for the Soil Conservation Service in Valentine, Nebraska. Wanting to move closer to his family, he took a job in the oilfield near Upton, Wyoming. Verlin and family moved from Upton to the family ranch near Rozet and he then worked for Belle Fourche Pipeline, a division of True Oil. Verlin retired in 1978 from the oilfield. Verlin then farmed alfalfa hay and combined alfalfa seed the rest of his life. He loved the land and his work. Verlin loved cars and bought a new car every couple of years. He also had numerous old cars, pickups, tractors, a 1936 RD4 Caterpillar bulldozer, and assorted farm machinery. Verlin could get any engine or machine to run, often machining his own parts. Verlin specifically loved his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He was fun-loving and adventurous. He built go-carts, rode motorcycles and snowmobiles. Verlin always had a fun activity for the children to do on the ranch.
