Condolence from Donna Biddiscombe on November 6th, 2011 8:17 am

Mom and I want to send our thoughts and prayers to Maryanne, Danny, Chris, Jonathan and Faye. Duffy was one of a kind as we all know. He danced to his own drummer, when he wanted and where he wanted .He lived his life to the fullest, and there are not many people who can say that. He enjoyed his time here on earth, and if there is a heaven and he is there, Heaven will never be the same. He will have everyone up and dancing and playing guitars. He and my Dad are having a grand old time right now. Rock on Duffy..don’t ever stop.
Donna & Joyce Doucette

all at this time. R.I.P. Duffy

Hello Maryanne & Duffy’s family: We were saddened to hear this news. Duffy used to love to listen and hear Gerald play bass. Gerald and he spent good times with Gerald showing him different chords etc. He loved to hear Dale Verge & Doin Country and would wave to us on stage. We know that he is no longer suffering but we will miss seeing him and speaking to him. Gerald & Vina Moses

To all those who loved Duffy and were his friends

Such a sad passing for a man whom many will remember. I knew Duffy only a few short years but I could tell that he had lived a life filled with stories. The photo montage showed just that, that he was one of a kind, and I am sure that he will be missed. I know myself, I will miss you Duffy (Homer)

I went to school with Duffy and always thought of him as a friend. I haven’t seen much of him in later years, but we always shared a laugh in the P. O. or elsewhere. I enjoyed the video and could see that he lived a full life, and never forgot his friends and family. My sincere condolences to his family.
