Bill was one of my funniest cousins. A few years ago we hosted our daughters 21st Birthday Party, well Bill for some reason thought it was her college graduation ( which was the following year) . He told his sister Anna Marie I’ll get the card. Needless to say it was hysterical as she read the card and Bill said why are you wearing a 21st sash😂. She sent him a Halloween thank you card.

I was sad to hear of Bill's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with all of Bill's family and friends. Although Bill and I only worked together for a short time he left a forever lasting impression of a man who loved life and was willing to face it head on even through the recent rough medical challenges. One time I will always remember is when he came in and won the Christmas ugly sweater contest with a SNOOPY and garland attached to the front of his sweater. He made everyone smile that day including me. I am glad and honored to have known Bill and call him friend. Bill will be greatly missed. If heaven has golf courses Bill will know them all soon. RIP my friend.

Sorry to hear of Bill's passing. I really enjoyed working with him. He always came in the office with a huge smile and would always be in a happy sprite. God bless his family in this time of grief.

Bill Duffy and I were good friends for many years. He was courageous in life and in facing his medical and surgical challenges in recent years.
I am confident he is with his departed friends and family now - surrounded by and supported by God’s Angels.

My best to the family. I am sad to learn of Bill's passing. I had the honor to be his friend, client, and then co-worker. He never failed to brighten the room with a joke and his laugh and smile. He was always good for a semi-true golf story as well. He will be missed by many! God bless!

My thoughts and prayers are with Bill's family and friends. I have known Bill about 40 years. Bill was a class act. He was a mentor and as teacher to many in the office products industry including myself. It was an honor to have him as a friend.
