With sadness we announce the sudden passing of Kevin Duffley on Apr 21, 2021 at the Crowsnest Health Care Centre, Blairmore, AB from cancer. He was 72 years of age.
He was a friend first, fisherman by nature, adventurer and roommate to his best friend and four-legged companion, Duff (Chesapeake Bay Retriever).
At quite a young age Kevin started traveling westward from Saint John, NB where he was born. He spent many years traveling and working as a ranch hand, where he grew his passion for the outdoors and animals. He honed his mechanical skills and safety knowledge on the oil rigs of Alberta along with various other jobs.
Kevin grew to enjoy photography and was eager to express his passion for music - particularly that of Eastern Canada, of course. His favorite discussion surrounded the sweet sounds of Cousin Jess and her fiddle skills, and he was always eager to travel to attend concerts for the Nova Scotiables and Derina Harvey Band.
Kevin could be caught relaxing and socializing with friends at local establishments, or at a friend’s outdoor social where he was sure to share the sweet aroma of his pipe tobacco. He will be greatly missed.
Kevin was predeceased by his mother, Leona Margaret (McGuire) Duffley and father, Louis “Lou” Duffley.
He is survived by brothers, Dick (Marianne) of Nanoose Bay Vancouver Island BC, Mike (Phyllis) of Woodstock NB, and Norm (Linda) of Sweetland NS; several nieces, nephews; cousin, Jess Blenis; and many friends.
With respect for Kevin’s wishes, no funeral service will be held. Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
