Pine Branch, Texas -- Mr. Roy Glenwood (Woody) Duffee, 79, of Pine Branch died Thursday, May 18, 2017 at his residence. Funeral services will be 2:00 p.m. Saturday, May 20 at the First Baptist Church of Bogata. Interment will be at Bogata Cemetery under the direction of Wood Funeral Homes of Bogata. The family will receive friends an hour prior to the service at the church.

Woody was born February 19, 1938 on the Goose Ranch at Hearts Bluff in Cuthand, Texas, the son of Douglas and Leona Moore Duffee.  He grew up in and around Cuthand and Rosalie area and attended school in Bogata.  Woody never cared much for being inside, so as soon as he could get out of class you could find him either looking down a gun barrel at a squirrel or a deer, or tying his favorite fishing lure on his ambassador 500 to catch a largemouth bass.

 Woody loved life and people.  If you were ever near a coffee shop, you knew that.  He worked his entire adult life for TP&L later known as TXU.  He was a Power Plant Operator it was in his blood till his dying day.  He loved to tell us stories of his crew members and all of his hunting and fishing buddies.

The family would like to say a special thanks to all his friends that continued to stay in contact with him even when he was confined mostly to the house.  He was a member of the Rosalie #527 Masonic Lodge.

He married his high school sweetheart Ann Bell on June 21, 1958 in Bogata and had four children: Mark Duffee of Omaha Nebraska, Don and wife Kathy Duffee of Longview, Texas, Denise Duffee of Caddo, Oklahoma and James and wife Sharon Duffee of Howe, Texas;  six grandchildren, Kayla Clark, Krystan Duffee, Brian Duffee, Brittany Kirby, Makenzie Duffee, Nathan Duffee; and five great-grandkids that he cherished and loved dearly.  He said that it was time for him to go and be the guardian angel for them all. 

He was preceded in death by his parents, a brother, J.D. Duffee and two sisters, Hazel Hearron and Patricia Davis.

Woody loved the simple life he lived on his farm in Pine Branch and he will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
