To Dan, Kevin, Mike and families my deepest sympathies. Pat was a wonderful person with a big heart. I will always remember my Boston Bar days and fond memories spent in Pat’s company. He was a great friend. My thoughts are with you all.

Relation: Friend/CPR Railroader

I wish to pass on my CONDOLENCES to the Duddy Family re-Pat`s recent passing. I had the privilege of knowing Pat for many years as I was employed at a Locomotive Engineer for the CPR…and travelled many miles in the “DUDDY BUS”…(as we referred to it). Pat & his drivers were the BEST and it was always a pleasure to ride with them. It was a pleasure to have known him and to have been able to keep in touch with him over the years.

I always enjoyed his sense of humor and our phone calls at Christmas each year. I will miss him. …A special thank you to Kevin & Sharon for keeping me updated on Pat..much appreciated.

As one of the CPR Conductors now living in Thailand (Tom Stoke) said….Pat may not have worked on the Railroad…but he will always be considered part of our Railroad family.
He will be missed…Keep on TRUCKIN Pat….and thanks for the GREAT RIDE !!!

Sincerely; Norm W. Bruce. retired Locomotive Engineer, CPR/Vancouver, B.C.

my condolences to Kevin, Dan, and Mike and the family on the loss of your brother and family member. I remember when we went to school together and those were good years. My heart goes out to your family.

From: John Edward Vaughan
Relation: Work- CPR

Sad to hear Pat has left us, but, I’m counting on seeing him again when I go! Pat always asked how my Grandfather (John Kozak) was doing after he left North Bend right up until he died. I remember Pat as being a soft spoken and very compassionate man as well as a very professional driver transporting CPR crews. I’m sure he’ll be dearly missed by his relatives and friends, but never forgotten. Looking forward to seeing you again Pat, thanks so much for being so kind to us.

From: Bill & Moira Middleton
Relation: friend from the TruckStop days

Our sympathetic wishes to all the family at this sad time. We remember Pat travelling with his Dad in the Harrington truck and then later when he drove on his own. He was one of the “good people” that helped this world along in a positive manner.

From: Cindy Cox
Relation: Fraser Canyon Hospital

My condolences to the Duddy family.
I worked as a Food Service Worker at Fraser Canyon Hospital.
I always looked forward to seeing Pat when I would be working in the Olsen neighborhood. He would wave at me every time I saw him at his table or his room, we must have waved to each other a dozen times a day and once or twice I may have forgot to give him a straw with his coffee but he certainly reminded me when I did forget. I will miss his smiles and waves and how he would always agree with me when I told him how handsome he looked.
