Mr. Dufour was a devoted Catholic, and served with the Ushers Society at St. Frances Cabrini Church and St. Louis Cathedral. Duffy was a member of the Knights of Columbus, The Order of The Holy Sepulchre, and the Kent House Board of Directors and conducted tours in French at both Lloyd Hall in Cheneyville, LA and the Ursuline Convent in New Orleans.
