Not sure what to say?

Joan, Warren, Debbie, Bob and All,
You are in my prayers during this sad time. Sincerely,
Lisa Riley

Always considered John as a true friend. We shared the Navy Supply Corps, Central Presbyterian and Auxiliary Services. He never knew a stranger.

John was very special --Keith never forgot the trip they made to visit Gramps in Invernes, Fl. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. Marlene

Debbie and Family! What an incredible man Mr. Duffett was. Full of stories and the most heart warming laughter. He impacted so many people and was a positive role model. He was loved by you of course but the world loved him also. Hugs to each of you. Love you Debbie!!!

Much Love! So sorry, Joan, for the loss of a wonderful man!

My favorite memory of longtime Oconee neighbor John is him with his Basset hounds. John is missed.

Malanoski wedding 3-28-92

John and Joan introduced Chet and I and served as the world's oldest bridesmaid and best man. Label was thanks to Debbie. Friendships started separately with Joan and Ann and Chet and John. Then and joined together in 1991. Am sure Chet met John at heaven's gate with a loud Polish greeting.

John also volunteered at Athens Regional. I treasure the time I spent with John at the Information Desk. Loved his stories of family. He was so proud of each and every one of you. He had an interesting life and was wise to choose Joan as his wife. May God comfort you at this time. May memories of John brighten your days.

I'm very sorry about the death of your love one may God the hearer of prayers grant you comfort in this difficult time and give you strength . (2 Co 1:4)
