      Ducy Brothers Plumbing = Edward and Robert Ducy

      Robert Emmet Ducy was born March 5, 1884 in West Brookfield, the son of John J. Ducey and Mary Ann Welch. Robert became a steam fitter and a master plumber. He and his brother Edward owned and operated Ducy Brothers' Plumbing.

      Robert married Florence Irene Allen on July 2, 1917 in the Thorndike section of Palmer, MA. Flossie was the daughter of William and Jane (Nimmens) Allen and was born in Ware, MA on June 7, 1893 according to town birth records. Three sons and a daughter were born to this union, most likely in Thorndike where the family lived.

      The 1941 obituary of Robert's brother Edward indicates that Robert and family had moved to Manchester, CT. Since the family was enumerated in Thorndike in 1930, we know the time period of the move to have been between 1930 and 1941.

      Robert died August 1, 1955 in Los Angeles, California where he had been a plumbing contractor and a member of the Congregational Church. His obituary stated that he had moved there in 1946. Florence died Dec. 28, 1966 also in Los Angeles County, California.
