William Durant Duff, Age: 85
Jan 22, 1935 - Sep 08, 2020





William Durant Duff was born on January 22, 1935 in Bristol CT to William and Harriett (Durant) Duff.  He passed away peacefully at home in Lee’s Summit MO on September 8, 2020 with his loving wife, Doris, by his side.




Bill graduated from Bristol High School before serving for 8 years in the United States Air Force.  He was stationed in Nebraska, and served in Korea.  He was employed at Peoples Natural Gas Company, and retired after several years of service as a district manager. He spent most of his life in Weeping Water, Nebraska, where he and Doris helped establish the Weeping Water Rescue Squad, served on the museum board and were involved in many civic activities. 




Bill's grandchildren will always remember him as their beloved Papa.  He was very creative and let them invent and play with things they probably shouldn't have! He loved tinkering in the garage and sharing his 'how to' knowledge with them, a legacy that they will carry on. 




Bill is survived by his wife, Doris; children Leslie Stratton, Allison Duff, Andrew and Tammy Duff;  stepchildren Debra and Dale Parson, Cathy and David Koehler, Janet and Tom Braz; sisters Jeannette Duff Andross and Barbara Duff Lacoss, along with several grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Will always remember the good times we had, flying together out of Brown’s Airport, over the Nebraska countryside. Ahh, the good ole days! Great memories! RIP cousin Bill...
