  1. CandleImageVery sad to hear the news about Duffy. We had years and years of fun times together with our Class of ’81! So many great memories, and much love.

  2. CandleImageI met Duffy in 1981 when we were Freshman in Geology at CSU. We both loved muscle cars, pick up trucks, and motorcycles!
    Duffy had this gorgeous, lifted yellow Toyota pick up, with a soft black topper. He was ahead of his time!
    Along with another buddy we rented an apartment sophomore year, and a lifelong friendship were born. We both had dirt bikes, enjoyed working out, and working on our trucks.
    I had the pleasure of meeting Duffy’s family, who he talked about constantly. His love for family was boundless.
    I was fortunate to spend some holidays with them at their Pueblo home and cabin. Also got to meet Dick and Doug in Aspen, and it was immediately clear why Duffy idolized his big brothers.
    My heart is broken, and that void will never be filled.
    Duff, Iwill miss our dinners and catch up phone calls.
    Rest in peace buddy.

  3. Duffy lived life large! Just thinking of him makes me smile. I have so many great memories of Duffy starting with kindergarten at Morton – recess in the “kindergarten cage.” Big weekend entertainment in middle school was “walking around,” and high school Duffy in his white Celica. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. RIP Duffy!

  7. – [ ] Duffy was a character, always up to something. He was so friendly and always willing to help a friend. He was a huge supporter of the local teams, loved the Bulldogs, Buffs and Broncos. We especially appreciated the kindness and love he gave to our sister. We hope the two of them are fly fishing in heaven.

  12. CandleImageWhat can I say about Duffy? No one was a stranger to Duffy. He made everyone feel as if he’s known you your whole life. He had the greatest smile and laugh. If you were hurt he’d bring you first aid stuff and make sure you had something to eat. He was the nice’s person you will ever have met and I don’t believe he had one mean bone in his body. You will be missed.

  13. CandleImageDuffy was always larger than life to me. He excelled in all that he did. It is hard know that he is no longer with us. Rest in peace Duffy. You will be missed.

During that time he was a constant friend in my life and a great teammate. I have many wonderful memories of Duffy that I will always cherish. Rest in peace my friend.

  15. Doug & Dylan,

    The closeness of our families makes this loss especially difficult. I will never forget Duffy. May God give him eternal rest and your family the strength to bear this great pain.

  16. CandleImageI went to school with Duffy, he was 2 grades older and I remember the house he grew up in. I remember getting in trouble my freshman year for leaving my cousin’s wedding when Duffy, Paul Consonero and my friend Emily came to pick me up to go hang out. I was 15 and not allowed to date, so of course when I got home I was grounded for a month and could not get my permit! Not a smart move, but those were the fun days!!
    My condolences to the Britt family. Rest in peace my friend Duffy!

  17. Back in my early years of coaching as an assistant football coach I had the pleasure to be around this young man. Fearless comes to mind plus a burning desire to be the best.
    RIP, my good man.
    Coach Tom Brockman

  18. The first time I met Duffy he was 12 years old. He had a trampoline under a basketball hoop and was doing flips and and crazy dunks! I thought “what a cool kid”. That was the beginning of our life long friendship

  19. CandleImageDuffy’s smile would light up a room, his kindness will always be remembered. Sending Prayers of comfort and peace to his family. 🕊🙏🏼🕊

  20. I remember being in school with Duffy starting in Kindergarten at Morton. He was always smiling and was kind to everyone. My sincere condolences to the family.

    • Morton, that was a life time ago. Still remember the play ground and the little white store, on the corner.
      Thank you, God bless Duffy
