All about Jim 💕

Jim enjoyed his years of playing Santa Clause for family and Friends! Playing cards with family, but his main passion in life for which he was very proud of was volunteering for his community in Annapolis where he was past President of the Lions Club and the Legion in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia. Jim worked for the IGA in Annapolis Royal for over 30 years! Jim’s most precious value was love for family and always being a little prankster, if you knew the Duffy Brothers, they all picked on one an other and there are many stories to tell! RIP Jim Duffy💕 lost but not forgotten!

    I was sorry to learn of the passing of my friend "Jimmy" ... I drive for Kings Transit and over the years he and I shared a chuckle or two on the bus. He also made sure that my name was on one of the fresh turkeys at Christmas ... you will be missed Jimmy. Ed
