The G.I. Bill became available to all veterans who had been on active duty during the war. Duane took full advantage and enrolled at Denver University Daniels School of Business. He majored in General Business, and the university accepted credits for his two years at General Motors Institute allowing him a second major in engineering; shortening his time at university to two years. He graduated in 1947 with a BA and BS.
Finished with his formal education, Pearsall wanted a more permanent career and started working at Honeywell as a Regional Service Manager, staying with the company for seven years.
Duane’s “Vision of success was to have a growing company contributing to the local economy, building futures for employees and setting an example for other members of the business community.”
