Duane was born on June 27, 1943 to Daniel Dieleman and Marie Vander Leest Dieleman in Oskaloosa, Iowa. He had 3 siblings while growing up in Iowa. He attended Pella High School and graduated in 1961. In 1964, Duane joined the Army and served for 3 years in Military Intelligence in Germany. Upon leaving the Military, he studied Psychology at Central College. While in College, Duane worked part-time as a radio operator at the Pella Police Department.
