ALBERT BAKER DUFFY (published on February 06, 2010)

ALBERT BAKER DUFFY October 11, 1930 - February 3, 2010 It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Albert Duffy at the Riverview Health Centre with family by his side. He will be lovingly remembered and live on in the hearts of his wife Shirley, of 56 years; son Maurice; daughter Sandy Bacon (Lorne), grandchildren Brenley and Kelly; daughter Chris Symons (Will), grandchildren Samantha and Scott; brother Edgar (Eileen), sister-in-law Joyce Taylor, brother-in-law Jim Ridley (Jeanette), as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friends. Al was predeceased by his precious daughter Pamela in 1957; his parents, Edward and Mary, sister Kathleen, brothers, Jim, Bill, Maurice, Frank, Charles, Ken and Leo. Al was born in Rosthern, SK, the youngest of ten children. He lived in Saskatchewan in his younger years, locating to Manitoba with his family in 1941. After marrying the love of his life he settled in Fort Garry to raise their family. Poppa could often be seen walking his dogs Casey, and later Cody, throughout the neighbourhood. He worked for the C.N.R. for 38 years retiring as a Brakeman. He enjoyed his casino trips and was passionate about sports of all kinds, forever rooting for the underdog (Go New Orleans!). Al enjoyed participating in golf and curling until his diagnosis with lung cancer in June 2009. Dad had many fond memories of his friends at the C.N.R., Fort Garry Curling Club, Pembina Curling Club, Transcona Golf and Country Club and St. Vital Catholic Church. We would like to give special thanks to Dr. Ahmet Leylek and the Palliative Care Unit at St. Boniface Hospital and the Riverview Health Centre for their compassionate care and kindness. A memorial service will be held Tuesday, February 9 at 10:00 a.m. at the Chapel Lawn Funeral Home at 4000 Portage Ave. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society. Always Remembered, Always Loved, and Never Forgotten. Chapel Lawn 885-9715
