Fallen Premium Poster: Kim Duke

As the editor of the DSXchange, and longtime friend, we lost the divine input of Kim Duke this week as he has passed to higher place. Kim, has been a huge supporter of DataStage and the underlying engine and how he could provide his years of insight and wisdom to our community. We are blessed to have known him and shared his posts. Back in the 90s, Kim worked with me while we brought sales and service to VMARK software in the Dallas area. He moved here from Oklahoma, where his family still lives. As he moved to the world of DataStage, he worked with all the versions of DataStage, from release 3 to 11.5 most recently. He has worked with many companies, many IBMers, and always graciously posted on the forum to share his tips and tricks. To many closely associated to the DSX, he was family. As of today, the family has not provided ways to share in his personal details (i.e funeral), but as we get them, we will provide them here. Please share your personal light with Kim, now passed and with his family left here. Kim will be forever missed.
