Steven Duane "Fifener" Phagan

March 12, 1951 ~ June 8, 2019 (age 68)

Steven Duane "Fifener" Phagan 68, of Gainesville, GA passed away Saturday, June 8, 2019.

Born on March 12, 1951, Duane was known for his sense of humor, his love for laughter, and his witty personality was unmatched and affected everyone he met. He was very intelligent, especially when it came to sports, there wasn’t much that he didn’t know. He lived his whole life in Gainesville and was a graduate of Johnson High School.  He served our country in the US Army.  He was loved beyond measure.  He left his family and friends way to soon, but it was in God’s will.  We will meet him again one day but he will be greatly missed.

Duane was preceded in death by his father Winford W. Phagan.

He is survived by his son Peyton Anderson of Sautee, mother Grace Tidwell of Gainesville, Brother Glen Phagan of Dahlonega, sisters Paula Corvo and Brenda Garrison both of Gainesville, two grandchildren Chase Anderson and Gabrielle Anderson. Duane also had a very large extended family that loved him deeply, and countless friends.
