Duane Wold

Duane R. Wold, former Jamestown resident and business man, died June 1, 2018 at Billings Clinic Hospital in Billings, MT after suffering a stroke. He was born October 11, 1930 in Scobey, MT.

Duane was an entrepreneur at heart, and his work and career experiences involved many adventures. One adventure that he felt especially good about was purchasing a franchise to manufacture, distribute, and sell Rhode's Frozen Bread Dough products. In February of 1964, he opened his first plant, on 12th Avenue SE in Jamestown, called the Dakota Bake-N-Serv. Later, another plant was built near the airport, which would serve as the headquarters for the five additional Bake-N-Serv plants built throughout the US. While residing in Jamestown, he served the community as president of the Chamber of Commerce in 1971, was also a member of the Jamestown Hospital Board of Directors, and was on the First Federal Savings & Loan Association Board. In 1974, Duane was honored to be named the Jamestown Boss of the Year. Duane was preceded in death by his sons Mark and Steve. Duane is survived by his wife Dolores; daughters Claudia (Mike) Brisbin, Lonna Lindsay, and Renee (Dan) Albert; 5 grandchildren; and 2 great-grandchildren. Memorial Services were held June 24, 2018 at the Billings Seventh-Day Adventist Church, of which Duane was a member. Its missions were his passion, and serving God and those less fortunate was his steadfast focus and utmost priority. A private family burial took place at St. Olaf's Church Cemetery in Red Lodge, MT. Duane was laid to rest beside his sons. Condolences may be given at
