Greyson James TUFTS

September 29, 1998 - Calgary, Alberta
July 17, 2021 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with profound sadness we announce the unexpected passing of our beloved son, brother and Uncle, Greyson Tufts on July 17, 2021, in Calgary.

 

Greyson grew up on the family farm near Edgewater, BC where he enjoyed all the aspects of living with lots of space to entertain himself and his siblings.  He participated in Rep soccer and competitive swimming in the Columbia Valley for many years along with his brothers but was a unique and creative soul who had an amazing artistic eye, that lead him further from sport the older he got. He used to add his special touch to the family store and to make his Alberta homes his own, and we will treasure the different pictures he took and shared over the years. He also possessed a sharp wit and amazing sense of humour that we will forever miss. 

 

He loved his family, and as the youngest of six, made an effort to keep in close contact despite everyone living in different places.  He especially enjoyed visiting his sister Ashley and his grandparents who lived close by once he had moved from home.

 

The walks and hikes, especially along the rivers, with his trusty Sidekick Dexter in tow, were a pleasure in his life.  He had a way with animals since his earliest years, and the animals on the farm returned his love following him around having us call him Dr. Doolittle in his youth.  Along with Dexter his beloved dog, his entire family and friends will feel his absence the rest of our days, although he will remain close in our hearts forever. 

 

Greyson leaves behind his parents, Graham and Karen; his siblings, Ashley, Christine, Maxwell, Maddy, and Pierce; as well as his nephew Mason, niece Kyree, and his grandparents from both sides of the family.  A notice will be posted for a celebration of life to be held in the Columbia Valley in the upcoming weeks. Condolences, memories, and photos can also be shared and viewed here.
