Obituary of Scott V. Duffy

Scott Vincent Duffy, age 46, of Weston, beloved husband of Meredith ( Merri ) Duffy, passed away suddenly on Friday, October 25, 2019.

Born in New York City, Scott was a Weston Town resident for 8 years. He graduated with his Bachelors Degree from the College of the Holy Cross and went on to receive his MBA from Stern School of Business at NYU. Mr. Duffy started his career at Goldman Sachs in NYC and then spent 10 years at Bank of America, Merrill Lynch where he was Managing Director and Global Head of Oil Trading and subsequently Global Head of Structured Crude.

Most recently Scott worked as Head of  Commodities and Trade at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia.  Scott was the co-founder of the veteran non-profit SoldierStrong, whose mission is to help American service men, women and veterans take their next steps forward either on the battlefield or as they transition into civilian life. Scott helped guide the organization’s strategic development to meet the continually evolving needs of our post-9/11 veterans.  Scott’s leadership helped the organization identify and deploy revolutionary medical devices around the country for seriously injured veterans resulting in numerous awards for his work including the President's Call to Service Award. Scott enjoyed boating with his family and friends and especially the times spent playing golf, tennis or cooking breakfast or barbeque.

In addition to his loving wife Merri, he leaves behind his children, Ronan and Avery and Calleigh and Quinn, his parents James and Eileen Duffy, brothers James Duffy and his wife Lauren of NYC and Christopher Duffy of Port Washington, NY, a sister Erin Farrell and her husband Daniel of Rye, NY as well as several nieces and nephews.

Calling hours will be held on Wednesday from 2-7 pm in the Lesko & Polke Funeral Home, 1209 Post Rd., Fairfield Center with a prayer service at 6:30 pm.
