James Leo Duncan 1941-2022
James “Jim” Leo Duncan, AKA “Papa,” went home to be with the Lord on Thu r sday, Dec. 1, 2022, surrounded by his family in his home in Seal Beach. Jim was born on Jan. 25, 1941, to James Arthur Duncan and Bessie Lee Bewley Duncan and was the younger brother of Bob and Oleta.
He is survived by his wife, Janis Elaine Ledbetter; his six daughters: Kristin, Staci, Jamie, Laura, Julianne, Elizabeth; his five sons-in-law: Matt, Mark, Chris, Vic, Brett; and his 13 grandchildren: Chace, Jayla, Michael, Naomi, Simone, Gabriel, Gianna, Elle, Leo, Lila, Theo, Mavis and Celma. Jim was very proud of his large, loving family.
Jim Duncan was the broker of the Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, formerly Prudential, real estate office for the past 15 years. He touched so many people’s lives throughout the years. Not only did his agents all adore him, people would stop in the office just to talk to him. He was a very warm, kind person so people just liked being around him.
Jim was known by all to be a moral, honest man with uncompromising values. He had an unparalleled sense of humor, loved the spotlight and was often appointed to be the master of ceremonies at community events. Jim loved the Lord and faithfully attended Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church in Los Alamitos. We have peace knowing he was welcomed into Heaven hearing the words, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” A celebration of life service will be planned for early January.
