In the "Remembrances" section of The Sacramento Bee, these words were written about Quinton Duval.
"A man of elegance, great charm and wit, Quinton could make a song out of anything. He will be missed by all who knew him."
For those of you who have wondered, "there will be no formal service [at his request]. Donations in his name may be made to the Quinton Duval Fund/Sacramento Poetry Center, 1719 25th Street, Sacramento, CA 95816."
My thoughts go to those left behind: his wife (Nancy), brothers (William and John), and sister (Clare), as well as all of the people whose lives were touched from having known Quinton as a friend or mentor, from having read his words, or from having heard him read.
