William F. "Bill" Duffy

William F. "Bill" Duffy, of Woburn, formerly of Winchester, passed peacefully on May 7, 2019.

Raised in Revere to the late Lester Duffy and Anna (Cronin), Mr. Duffy was the beloved husband of the late Mary E. (O'Connor) and the loving father of Bridget Doron and her husband Robert of Reading, and David Duffy and Meghan Murphy of Medford. The cherished "Papa" of Matthew Doron, the brother of Ann Horgan of Stoneham and the late Mary Cahalane, he also is survived by many loving nieces and nephews.

A proud graduate of Christopher Columbus High School, Class of 1957 in the North End, Boston, and founder and owner of Equipment Leasing Services of Billerica, Mr. Duffy loved helping people. He would donate his time and extensive knowledge to connect his wide network of friends and colleges to support humanitarian missions locally and internationally.

One of his greatest efforts was leading the coordination of donations and shipments of construction equipment and bridges to help in the relief and rebuilding effort in Honduras after the devastation of Hurricane Mitch.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to Catholic Charities of Boston, 275 West Broadway, Boston, MA 02127, or Mass General Hospital Development Office, Attn: Tricia Keck, 125 Nashua St., Boston, MA 02114,
