David Dufty dies

Long-time Bouddi Peninsula resident Mr David Dufty has died.

Members of the Bouddi community are mourning the loss of Mr Dufty who has been described as a tireless community advocate and champion environmentalist.

Mr Dufty died peacefully in his sleep on August 8, aged 93.

He is survived by his wife Helen, their three children and their four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

"David was one of the founding members of the Bouddi Society and a very important member of the Bouddi Bushcare Group," said Society president Mr Phil Donnelly.

"A creative dynamo, he was a cultural force in our community and an environmental force too.

"His contribution in the wider community as an educator was recognised by him being made a Member of the Order of Australia.

"He was also honoured by the Bouddi Society by being given life membership.

"He will be remembered with great gratitude and fondness.

"Our condolences go to Helen and their family.

Mr Dufty was also a great friend to the Wagstaffe-Killcare Community Association.

"David was a stalwart of the Bouddi community and a true force of and for nature," said Association president Mr Mike Allsop.

"For this association, David assisted in many ways including putting his feet on the ground every month for many years delivering our Talking Turkey Newsletter to the community."

Mr Dufty's funeral was held at Greenway Chapel at Green Point on August 16.
