Roy Glenwood (Woody) Duffee

Mr. Roy Glenwood (Woody) Duffee, age 79 of Pine Branch died Thursday, May 18, 2017 at his residence. Funeral services will be 2pm Saturday, May 20 at the First Baptist Church of Bogata. Interment will be at Bogata Cemetery under the direction of Wood Funeral Homes of Bogata. The family will receive friends an hour prior to the service at the church.

Woody was born February 19, 1938 on the Goose Ranch at Hearts Bluff in Cuthand TX the son of Douglas and Leona Moore Duffee.  He grew up in and around Cuthand and Rosalie area and attended school in Bogata.  Woody never cared much for being inside so as soon as he could get out of class you could find him either looking down a gun barrel at a squirrel or a deer, or tying his favorite fishing lure on his ambassador 5000 to catch a large mouth bass.

Woody loved life and people.  If you were ever near a coffee shop you knew that.  He worked his entire adult life for TP&L later known as TXU.  He was a Power Plant Operator it was in his blood till his dying day.  He loved to tell us stories of his crew members and all of his hunting and fishing buddies. The family would like to say a special thanks to all his friends that continued to stay in contact with him even when he was confined mostly to the house.  He was a member of the Rosalie #527 Masonic Lodge and the First Baptist Church of Bogata.

He married his High School sweetheart Ann Bell on June 21, 1958 in Bogata and had four children.  Mark Duffee of Omaha Nebraska, Don and wife Kathy Duffee of Longview TX, Denise Duffee of Caddo Ok and James and wife Sharon Duffee of Howe TX.  Six Grandchildren, Kayla Clark, Krystan Duffee, Brian Duffee, Brittany Kirby, Makenzie Duffee, Nathan Duffee and five Great Grand-kids that he cherished and loved dearly.  He said that it was time for him to go and be the guardian angel for them all.

He was preceded in death by his parents, a brother, J.D. Duffee and two sisters, Hazel Hearron and Patricia Davis.

Woody loved the simple life he lived on his farm in Pine Branch and he will be greatly missed by his family and friends.  The family would like to say a special thanks to all his friends that continued to stay in contact with him even when he was confined mostly to the house.

    Donnie and family,

    My thoughts and prayers go out to you during this difficult time. Just grab hold of the promise and rejoice in knowing that to be absent from this earthly body is to be present with the Lord. I have a dad of similar age that is not far behind Mr. Duffee.

    Ann: I am so sorry that you have lost Woody. He was a fine fellow and I thought a lot of him. It was a happy day for me when I managed to get on his shift at Valley. We had some mighty good times working midnight’s together. He was really easy to work with. You have great kids to support you at this time and I have good memories of each one of them. It was nice growing up next door to all of you. I am thinking of your family at this time of loss.

  5. To my Dear Duffee Family:
    It is with a very heavy heart to say that I will not be able to attend the celebration
    Of life for Uncle Woody.
    My heart will always be full remembering the stories that Daddy told me growing
    Up, the ones of all the Duffee men hunting and fishing have always been my favorites.
    Know that I will be lifting up our family in this very difficult time in our lives.
    With much love
    Judith Duffee Weissinger.
