The deceased, who with his wife and son (Edward) came to Three Springs and commenced business in 1914, has been closely associated with the many activities in connection with the district's progress.

The deceased was born in Stawell, Victoria, but lived in Western Australia the greater portion of his life. A severe attack of pleurisy necessitated Mr. Duffy's removal to hospital several weeks ago and although he showed some improvement  when discharged little hope was held for his recovery owing to severe pulmonary troubles, this being the third time Mr. Duffy had been seized with an attack of pleurisy. His sister, Miss E. Duffy, of Stawell, who was in Kalgoorlie at the time, was sent for. Throughout Wednesday night Mr. Duffy gradually became weaker and passed peacefully away in the presence of his wife, son and sister at about 9 o'clock on Thursday morning. Requiem Mass will be held at the Roman Catholic Church at 9 a.m. this Saturday morning, and the funeral is expected to leave the church this morning at 10 o'clock for the Roman Catholic portion of the cemetery where the Rev. Father M. Lynch will perform the last rites."
