Linda and family,

I worked with Don for many years. he was a very special person in my life. His calm demeanor and quick wit were things that I remember so well. He taught me many things about how to deal with people and more importantly how to take care of those who are important to us. He was a true friend and mentor. He will be missed greatly. RIP my friend.

“Say it ain’t so”, that was one of Duffy’s favorite responses to a multitude of topics. I wish it wasn’t so this time Mr. Duffy. The worlds loss, Heavens gain. Our hearts will be so empty without his larger than life presence. He was one of the hardest working, family oriented, honest & loyal individual I was privileged to know, love & call my friend. To his family, who are such fine, fine people, we share in your sorrow. We will miss him in our lives so very much. All our hearts are broken.

I was sorry to learn of Donnie's passing, I have lots of memories of him when we were in high school. Hanging out at the 66 station at Millersburg. We had lots of fun times. My condolences to you Linda, and your family.

I was sad to learn of Donnie's passing. He was a kind person that would always help where needed. His military service with the MO National Guard is greatly appreciated and he and Bill Williamson helped to keep some jeeps and retired military trucks running when they were donated to help start North Callaway and Central Callaway Fire Departments. I have had the pleasure to work with Rance through the statewide 911 boards. Prayers for Linda and the Duffy and Harris family.

Don was a great man, and I’m lucky to have known him. Don never meet a stranger and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. My life was positively touched by Don being in it. Rest In Peace my Veteran friend.

Your family has our deepest sympathy. Don was a good friend and fellow trucker. He would always call me with highway updates while I was hauling fuel. He also was an important supporter of the North Callaway Fire Department and Callaway County Fair. He will be missed.
