He graduated from Pauls Valley High School in 1953 and from University of Oklahoma in 1957, with a BBA degree in finance. He attended the United States Navy officer candidate school in Newport, R.I. Active duty took him to San Diego, Calif., and he achieved the rank of commander during his long and successful career in the U.S. Naval Reserve.

Upon retirement from First National, he became a banking consultant for two years and left consulting to enjoy family and domestic and foreign travel.
       Mr. Duffield participated in many church and community activities as well as being active in the Texas Bankers Association, Kappa Alpha Order and National Bankers Association.
