    He also seems to have appeared in the recent comedy “Sex Drive” where he played the father of a girl who had a small problem with his wardrobe. Very funny. I think he truly had the last laugh.
    Rest in peace.

    The above link is to the obituary of Duarte, from which it can be inferred that he worked on Burn Notice–he is credited with being one of the people responsible for bringing the movie and television industry into Miami.

    He comes up at the end of a burn notice episode as a credit. It says “in memory of”

    This was the best man to ever live he was a great artist and a great man. It was a great loss when he died! He was my father in-law he had heart of gold. I know that when people die they always say how great they were but He was! Ask anyone in the movie business that knew him. I miss him dearly! He was a very hard working family man!

    Sorry Angie about your father in-laws death, he must have meant a lot to you and your partner. In Australia when we see a dedication at the end of a show to some one who has died we wounder who they are and what they did, as the credits for the shows go so fast and we only watched that episode in September, but it had aired in the US in January. It would be great if they put in who they were and a short story of their life so we could feel the loss too.

    I have two paintings signed Jose Duarte. One is of the Coral Gables Fountain Scene (where sweet 15 pictures are taken) and the other of a Conquistador. How can I tell if this is the same person listed here.

  • Carol posted on October 9, 2009 at 10:50 am | Permalink

    Eli,

    Jose Duarte is my father. A man I miss every single second of every single day. He was the most amazing man I have ever met. Not only was he an exceptional artist, but the most amazing father, husband and friend. I miss him terribly. I would be happy to help you identify your paintings signed by Jose Duarte. From your description, it sound like they were my father’s paintings. I have a Coral Gables painting from many years ago in my living room now and remember very well the Conquistador paintings he made.

    Jose Duarte was my father and my best friend. He was the most god like man i have ever met. I have never seen anybody as perfect and as talanted as him. Nobody will ever replace the void thats in my heart. They put here that my father started working in 1985 but my father started working in the movie industrie in the 1960s on the Jackie Gleason Show and from the he sky rocketed doing feature films as scarface, something about mary, and over a hundered other movies and t.v shows. i would like to buy any of my dads paintings and caractures that he might have done for memory reasons only. if you would like to contact me my email address is dmoparman440@aol.com. if you have any questions that you would like to know about my father please contact me.
    I LOVE YOU DAD!! YOY WILL LIVE FOREVER IN MY HEART AND IN HUNDERDS OF OTHER PEOPLES HEARTS THAT YOU HAVE TOUCHED OVER THE YEARS!! I MISS YOU SO MUCH!!!

    YOUR SON, DANNY DUARTE!!!

    Lazaro, I could help you identify your painting if you would like to send me a picture to my e-mail address at crequejo@aol.com. Sometimes my dads signature did look like Dwarte instead of Duarte.
    I would love to see a picture of your painting, if indeed it is one of my fathers!

    I just read all this, and while I have no idea his connection to burn notice, however I can of course assume he had some production involvement in it, I must say. He sounds like a seriously great man. I’ve read bits here and there, and -wow- he is epitomized as a great man, a great father, a great painter[even if not famous for it], but above all, a well remembered member of society. I don’t know him, I never heard of him till I saw the episode and looked it up. But rarely do my internet searches find someone so well revered. Sounds like his loss is ours.
    Sorry to his family, and anyone he worked with. I’m sure you all miss him, and love him. Thanks for having this webpage so I can find out about this great person who touched us all for so many years.

    Jose Rodriguez Duarte not only my grandfather but i considered him my father and best friend. He was the most talented man i have ever met and will probably ever meet in my life. He was the most caring, loving and family oriented man. He was a very special part of the movie industry but he never left his family he did he work mostly in miami because he couldnt stand the thought of being too far from us…my heart will never be the same as a big chunk has been torn…..i love you abuelo life will never be the same without you….

    Funny how all his ‘relatives’ misspel the word ‘talented’…

  • Micheal White posted on August 30, 2010 at 7:44 am | Permalink

    He is Matt Nix’s godfather! He was the true inspiration for Burn Notice. Well, it’s kept under the hat, though. When Jose was young, he was caught in fixes like the ones on the episodes and he used to hire a David Fleigh for his jobs, who was an ex-marine…. RIP Jose, a good friend and a talent behind the scenes !

    I have three paintings that I call drip art because black paint is dripped on creating an outline. The one is signed at the top by Jose Durante of a Conquistador the other two are ocean battles that I never noticed being signed but made and purchased at the same time. All three over 50 years old.
