Extending my deepest condolences to Captain Jim’s family, so sorry for your loss. I am hopeful that all have those great memories and Captain’s stories for comfort in these days. I worked with Jim at GLDD for many years and I always welcomed and valued his friendship, and his calm and straightforward advice with operations. And he always made time for us newer coworkers to share stories and catch up with the goings on. Deepest condolences again. Chris

My condolences to the family. "Capt Duffy" was one of my first dredge captains that I got to work with after starting my career with Great Lakes Dredge & Dock. My first project with him was working down in St. Thomas digging material for the cruise ships and creating a whole new seaside profile for a new cruise terminal at the time. The crewboat landing was attached to a marina bar and we all spent many nights eating and drinking and having grand adventures and learning that "island time" ran a lot slower than normal time. I ended up working with Capt a number of times over the years on many projects both on the east coast as well as in the gulf and always enjoyed his stories and picking his brain for his dredging knowledge. He will be missed.

Jim was a wonderful nextdoor neighbor. I remember that whenever one of our cars died, Jim always came over with his trickle charger. He was so compassionate. When my cat died, he wrote a deeply thoughtful condolence card, because he knew how much I would miss my companion. Jim will be greatly missed.

Jim stories were the best. Could listen to him for hours. A great memory was one night in mom's kitchen run away crabs and my daughter-in-law trying to escape one small kitchen. Jim and I think my brother was laughing so hard. Wonderful times when family were together.
