Paul V. Duffy, 51, of Clifton Park, passed away on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 with his loving family by his side.
Born in Albany, NY in on December 1, 1966, son of Christine (Sajdak) Dodge and the late Paul Duffy.
Loving son of Christine and Kenneth Dodge of Clifton Park, NY.
Cherished brother of Tracy (Lee) Kaback of Delmar, NY and Peter Duffy (Deanna Lively) of Greenfield, MA. Loving Uncle of Ella and Max Kaback. Survived by several loving Aunts and Uncles plus cousins.
Paul grew up in Menands but lived many years in Bradenton and Sarasota, Florida before returning to the Capital District.
Paul received his education locally and attended CBA before moving to Clifton Park where he graduated from Shenendehowa Class of 1984.
For a time, Paul was a bartender with local establishments in the Capital District, in addition to the years he spent in Sarasota, Florida. He was also a longtime mechanic with various businesses in the Capital District, but most recently Midas. Paul was a ‘Jack of all trades’ and very skilled with model cars and airplanes. His knowledge of airplanes and anything mechanical was exceptional. If there was ever a technical or mechanical issue he accepted the challenge, and would succeed! An avid history buff, Paul would talk to anyone on this subject (even if you didn't want to listen). Through his interests, Paul was invited and belonged to a private Facebook mechanics group (Cross-threaded Nuts) who expressed sadness in losing one of their "Nuts".
Paul was happiest cooking, boating and working on cars. He really enjoyed music (and there wasn't an air drum he couldn't play!) a loyal Star Trek and N.C.I.S. fan, he dared you to quiz him on any episode. Paul loved spending time with the family pets, and he was his happiest helping his parents around the house.
