Patrick John "Duff" Duffy, 43, of Hopkins passed away peacefully in his home on September 3, 2022.
Duff was born November 6, 1978, to Deborah (Trautt) Duffy and Michael Duffy in Duluth, Minnesota. He attended Cathedral School, East Junior High and Superior Senior High School.
Duff was known for his big heart, his fierce loyalty to his friends and family, his utter willingness to help those in need and those in pain, his sense of humor, and his sharp wit. He grew up in Superior, called Ashland, Wisconsin home for nine years, and moved to Hopkins, Minnesota in 2019. He faced his illness like every other part of his life, with courage and a lot of jokes.
Despite being a Wisconsin boy, he was a devoted 49ers fan, to the consternation of many. He was passionate about politics, loved to travel, and enjoyed comics and all things nerdy. He loved his wife, Carrie, and his child, Alex with all of his heart. He would do anything for them.
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, John and Jessie Trautt, his paternal grandfather Bill Duffy, and his cousin Phil Esther. He is survived by his wife Carrie Slater Duffy, his 13-year-old child and best buddy, Alex Patrica Duffy, his brother Matt Duffy (Jamie Ratliff), his parents, Mike and Deb Duffy; his grandmother, Letty Duffy; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
A Celebration of Life will take place at Vintage Italian Pizza, (VIP) at 1201 Tower Avenue, Superior on Sunday, September 11 from 5pm to 9pm.
Gifts in his memory may be made to the School District of Superior Scholarship Foundation, Northland College Scholarship Fund, or the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy.
