February 14, 1968 – November 30, 2012
Brent Duffy passed away peacefully in his sleep on Friday, November 30, 2012 at the age of 44 years following a courageous lifelong battle with hemophilia.
Brent was loving, funny, determined, with a quirky sense of humour. His greatest joys were his children. Brent had a passion for the outdoors, and loved rafting, football, poker and blackjack; and theme parties with his best friends. He was originally born in Nova Scotia but loved the mountains, where Alberta became his home. He was meticulous and professional in all aspects of the construction industry.
He is survived by his beloved children Travis of Gagetown, NB (mother Serena), and Caleigh of Airdrie, AB (mother Michelle); a granddaughter, Shea of Halifax, NS; his mother Gloria of Dartmouth, NS; two sisters Sheryl (Stephen) of Lower Sackville, NS and Colleen Duffy of Dartmouth, NS; two brothers Leslie of Calgary and Michael (Sheila) of Middle Sackville, NS; niece Amanda; nephews Evan, Adam and Tyler.
He was predeceased by his father George and niece Brandy Anderson.
