James Duffy Obituary

Uxbridge- James Everett Duffy Touchette “Jime” & “Bush”, 68, passed away on Sat., March 30, 2024 after a period of declining health.

He is survived by his son Joshua James Duffy; his daughter, Jamie Rose Touchette; his siblings, JoAnne, Coleen, Cheryl, Scott, and Timothy, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Charles Duffy, and Elaine (Rattie) Touchette.

Born in Newport, RI Navy Hospital on May 23, 1955, Jim went to Blackstone Valley Tech Trade school class of 1974 in Upton, MA for Auto Body

Jim worked at Pine Grove Cemetery for a few years after High School and then became the Superintendent at St Mary’s Cemetery in Uxbridge for over 10 years. While there he started his own excavation business, Jim Touchette & Son. Jim snow plowed for 29 straight years in his hometown of Uxbridge. He worked for three other excavation companies before early retirement due to health reasons at the age of 60.

Jim loved operating heavy equipment and took pride in all that he did. He built two houses in his lifetime one near Webster Lake where he lived for a number of years and one in Uxbridge. Jim loved Uxbridge and always tried to be a part of his community through sponsoring some of his Children’s sports teams and driving his 46’ Chevy Pick-up that he restored with his son and had many appearances in the town’s parades.  He enjoyed spending time with his kids, building the family Go Kart, as well as a love for putting out the flower barrels in downtown Uxbridge.

Jim was a part of the First Congregational Church in Uxbridge for many years where he attended with his family and community. He served as a Deacon for numerous years and was the sexton and property care taker. Later on, he worshiped from home in his own way.

He had a passion for traveling with his kids and family on vacations to Cape Cod, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Florida, and one of his favorite places Martha’s Vineyard.

Jim was a good friend,  a father, and a good man who will be missed by many.

Jim’s life will be celebrated privately by his family. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the New Bedford Star Kids, 100% of the students have a parent with a history of incarceration and/or substance abuse. https://newbedfordstarkids.org/donate/
