Obituary

Leonard Freeman Duffy 90 years
(September 13th, 1929 - July 30th, 2020)

Predeceased by his wife Elsie Duffy in 1989, he is survived by children David (Janet) of Sudbury, Michael (Anne) of Quebec City, and Susan (Sam) of Ottawa. He is also survived by 5 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.

Born in St. John, New Brunswick he married Elsie Lorraine Farnham in 1953. In the fifties he worked construction projects in New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario including hydro dams and the St. Lawrence Seaway. After having a child born in each province in which he worked, they settled down in the Lively area where he worked for INCO, retiring in 1986 after serving as a maintenance mechanic. He was active in the Steelworkers Local 6500 and served as chief steward and on the bargaining committee. He had a natural talent for musical instruments and mechanics. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, and the camp on Lake Agnew.

In his ailing years he still maintained his faith in Jesus, and was always a positive thinker.

A graveside committal service will be held on Friday, August 7th 1:00 PM at the Waters Cemetery on White Road, off Jacobson Dr., off Municipal Road 24, in Walden. There will be no visitation before nor socializing afterwards due to the COVID crisis. Due to COVID restrictions the maximum of 100 guests applies. In lieu of flowers please consider donations to the Christ Anglican Church in Lively, or the Alzheimer Society. Arrangements entrusted to the Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home, www.lougheed.org.

I met Duffy at River Valley Bluegrass festival a few times and a really inspiring and amazing thing I remember is he sat with my family and I and jammed with us with his banjo. He noticed that I was taking a lot of interest in the banjo and let me try it. During the festival before we left as the festival was over he gave me his banjo and told me to learn it and to play a song for him next time we saw each other. I want to thank Duffy for that inspiring memory. Without that truly amazing experience I wouldn’t have wrote a song called What Memories Are Made Of. My condolences go out to all family members and friends of Duffy’s.

We are so sorry to hear of Duffy's passing and our thoughts and prayers are with his entire family. We think about him often and remember the first time we met him and the relationship he quickly developed with Hayley. She still treasures the banjo he gave her. We have fond memories of the week we camped together at River Valley. We still smile about the time that his son brought him to River Valley for the day and he immediately recognized Hayley as the little girl he gave his banjo to. Rest in peace, Duffy. - The Verrall Family
