When actor Patrick Duffy married his wife, Carlyn Rosser, in 1974, he was the happiest man on this planet. While their marriage lasted more than four decades, it was tragically cut short when Carlyn died in January 2017, leaving him deeply saddened. The loving couple has two children, Padraic and Conor, who—like their adoring father—miss their mother every day.  However, they also understand that bad things happen in life and that you have to do your best to move on, Closer Weekly reported.

Accepting her death was a difficult pill for the actor to swallow. Rosser died unexpectedly and without warning, making adjusting to her absence extremely difficult. Unfortunately, death took Rosser away from her husband after 43 years of marriage. It was a great loss for the then-70-year-old star who had spent nearly five decades of his life with his extraordinary partner. However, after her death, the actor told CloserWeekly in 2019 that he could still feel her presence, saying, "I can hear her. I can see her."
