Legacy Book

Paul Emmett, president and ceo of Duffy's Sports Grill.



We never met Paul but we have been going to Duffy's from the time he had his first restaurant. He knew how to run his business and therefore he was very successful. May he rest in peace. Fred and Georgia Lambrou

I had the pleasure to deal with Paul in our business and would see him often at Duffy's having lunch with his son. Always kind and pleasant. My deepest condolences and prayers to the Emmett family during this time.

My wife and I met Paul at the Fort Lauderdale restaurant. We instantly took a liking to Paul - it was obvious that Paul was a sincere, gracious, family oriented, high ethical individual. We know his legacy will continue... R.I.P. To the family, our sincerest condolences. God Bless...

I not to mention my buddies were found to be reading the excellent advice located on the website and then all of a sudden got a terrible suspicion I never thanked the blog owner for those techniques. The young men had been for that reason very interested to read them and have in effect very much been making the most of these things. We appreciate you genuinely very considerate and then for making a choice on this sort of terrific themes most people are really needing to be aware of. Our own sincere regret for not saying thanks to you sooner.

Paul Emmett was a someone who even though he was my boss was more like a very good friend. He would walk in one day out of the blue shake my hand ask how I'm I doing. He'd always listen to you when talking to him and from that you would always get that's since that he cared about his people at work because he did I was always happy to see him visit a very outstanding man. Thank you Paul Emmett for everything. Peace the journey and see you at the Pearly Gates one day.

We encountered him several times @PGA location. Always charming and interested in our comments (which were very positive).

I have been a regular customer at Duffy's PGA since its opening. Never met him, but have always enjoyed my trips to his place there. I hope his family keeps running their places in the same good spirit as previously. May he rest in peace.

We did not know Paul personally, we love Duffy's. Every time that we come to visit our son at the University of Miami, we go to Duffy's. It is a great atmosphere with good food, great drinks specials and very friendly staff. We wish we had one in Texas. Our sincere condolences to Paul's family, friends and staff.

Paul Emmett was the ideal to which every business person in America should strive to emulate -- a brilliant entrepreneur, a wonderful human being, and a terrific guy to have a drink and share a story with. We will miss him in this community.

- Morris Goldings
Mr. Emmett was a great business man who truly cared about his patrons.. I only pray he left his wonderful restaurants in loving hands such as his. You were much too young to leave us. God Bless You.

Paul mentored without awareness of the wisdom we gained from him along the way. Always obvious was the admirably tight bond between his immediate family; his Duffy's family enjoys a similar bond. Paul had our backs, paralleled by Jason. We're left with a grateful respect for all the Emmett family. Thanks to their unique grooming process, they've ensured without question, the Duffy's Family Vision is a Legacy that will carry forward. With deepest respect, Christopher Thomas

Sending my deepest condolences; I was a classmate of Paul's throughout his growing up years in Westport: elementary, junior high, and high school. We sang together in the Staples choral programs and he was one of the stars of our Class of '70. He will be truly missed. Lucinda Mirk Setnicka

Paul, Your business model is one that all others will aspire to achieve. Your customers, patron's, business associates, friends and family will miss you very much. I wish I knew you better than the brief acquaintance and a few phone calls where we interacted. You were a special person who always appreciated the customer's interest, as well as, your employees. Everyone will miss you! Sincerely, Tom Ittner

To Paul's family... Know that we are from UK. We live here now in Greenacres. I once shared with Paul that "Duffy's has the best fish & chips this side of England". I mean that, as we have roamed the world. He knew I meant it & he was happy to hear that. Paul, Wherever you now abound be it in Happiness and Light within the Grace of God. May you be at Eternal Peace. Keith & Judy
