    I met Brian when I was 15 years old and moved in across the street! I immediately became friends with Brian and his sister Jayne. Brian was cool calm and collected! We had many good times together and Brian was always a gentleman kind and a trusted friend! I can’t say enough good things about Brian! He was truly LOVED and will be truly missed. ❤️ xox MJ

  • Brian was my childhood pal. As cousins, we spent many weekend hours having adventures together. It was always fun to go visit the “Joe Duffy’s” in Stoughton. If our large family got together with our other cousins, we sought each other out. Brian was such a gentle, kind soul. He was so smart… never forgot anything.
    As young adults we would get together to play tennis on occasion. Then, as the years went by, Brian and Jayne would make my St. Patrick’s Day party a true celebration just by showing up! You are missed already, dear Cousin.
    It has been said “a cousin is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.” Thank you for that gift, Brian. I love you.

  • Brian, as someone that had the pleasure to know you virtually my entire life I am proud to say you are my friend. Your presence on earth may have changed but, your soul will live on in all of us that knew you. Rest In Peace my friend

    To the entire Duffy family I offer my heartfelt condolences on Brian’s loss.
