Tufts, Greyson James

September 29, 1998 -
July 17, 2021

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 aspects of living on a farm with lots of space to grow and enjoy life with his siblings. He participated in both soccer and competitive swimming in the 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. Anyone who knew him, knows that 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. In Calgary, he especially enjoyed visiting his sister Ashley and his grandparents who lived close by.

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, leading 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 and Niece Kyree, and his Grandparents from both sides of the family. 

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Columbia Valley Centre in Invermere, on Sunday, August 1, at 1:00. We invite anyone who would like to come and share a memory with us to do so. 

In living memory of Greyson Tufts, a tree will be planted in the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area by Calgary.
Condolences can be left online with Chapel of the Bells,
McInnis and Holloway of Calgary.
