2/5/2005 - 11/30/2020On November 30th, 2020 our cherished “Tuffy” was reunited with his beloved family members as he crossed the Rainbow Bridge. There to welcome him were his biological mother Pinkie, father Striker Downey, Aunt Mocha, Uncle Crook, cousins Leo and Brewster and special friends, Freddie and Sam.
Left to cherish his memory are his adoptive mother Betsy, father Duane, sister Iris, and step brother Gator Boy. His social circle included countless close friends and virtual fans, notably, his “pack” at Cambridge Square, where he enjoyed many a Friday night hanging out with “the girls” in the media room. The family would like to specifically thank Sarah & Mary (for all the treats!!!!), Danielle, Erin, Jen, Chrissy, Ayden, Heather, Lindsay and Brittany for welcoming him as one of their own, despite his inability to participate in playing “Cards Against Humanity”.
Tuffy never met a stranger. One of his favorite past times was shopping; groceries being his favorite. He would sit attentively in his little green box situated in the cart and was greeted by practically everyone that crossed his path.
His work was always very important to him. Tuffy believed strongly in the adage “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life”, evidenced by his very full nap schedule. He was a constant companion to Betsy, both at home and at the office.
His latest position at Green Donation Consultants afforded him lengthy naps during his long commute and a wide social network of fellow professionals with whom to share snacks and beds with. Margaret, Bella, Sandy, Sadie, Tiggy and Tobey were all respected colleagues and friends.
While he considered himself semi-retired, Tuffy somehow found the time to be active in the Sales department, as well as on the Production team. Daily meetings with Anna in Sales for morning and afternoon treats were instrumental in structuring workflow and priorities for the day. He thrived on the love and attention he received daily from the appraisers and fellow officemates, Elizabeth, Emily and AnnMarie. Tuffy’s quality of life over the last year was most certainly enhanced by the love he was shown by so many, for which ‘thank you’ doesn’t come near to expressing my gratitude. Rest in peace, sweet boy.
