It is primarily for his fierce dedication to and leadership of the Martinez Sea Scout Ship Sea Witch that Duffey is recognized this year as Martinez Man of the Year.
Born in Grass Valley, CA and mostly raised in Concord, Duffey’s mother was a homemaker and his father first worked in a foundry, and then switched careers to that as an auto mechanic, eventually retiring from Walnut Creek Toyota. Duffey, 52, graduated from Concord High School and went straight to work, following in his dad’s footsteps in auto mechanics. Over the years, his mechanical skills focused on the marine environment and today he does freelance work fixing and maintaining his client’s boats, as well as working with a tour boat company in Suisun City.
