It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the family of the late Thomas George Downey announces his passing at the Dr. Charles L LeGrow Health Centre in Port aux Basques, NL on Sunday, February 25th, 2018 at the age of 79 years. Born in O'Regan's, NL, Thomas was the son of the late John and Maude Downey. He was predeceased by his brothers Edward Downey, Frank (Annie) Downey, Raymond (Ida) Downey, George Downey, Leo Downey, Augustus Downey and sister Rose (Carl) Brake. He leaves to mourn with fond and loving memories his brothers Hyacinth (Mary) Downey of Dryden, ON, Micheal (Ruth) Downey of O'Regan's, NL; sisters Margaret O'Gorman of Stephenville, NL, Theresa Prosser of Sydney, NS; sisters-in-law Marie Downey, Blanche Downey, Winnie Downey all of Codroy Valley, NL. Tom was a kind hearted, humble man with a warm friendly smile for all. His love for his family and friends was only exceeded by his love of the river. From the break of dawn to well after dusk Tom could be found in his rubber boots, plaid shirt and ball cap, sporting his favourite rod and reel, balanced perfectly on his quad and off he would go. What exactly he did at the river for all of those hours, well, that’s a tale for another time. Rest peacefully knowing how much you will be missed. He will be fondly missed by many nieces, nephews, and many of his special friends. Visitation took place on Tuesday, February 27th from 6:30-8:30 pm with a memorial service to follow at 7 pm from St. Ann's Roman Catholic Church, Upper Ferry where the Mass of Christian Burial took place on Wednesday, February 28th at 11:00 am with Father Lee Lainey officiating. Interment followed at Mount St. Thomas Cemetery, Great Codroy. Flowers graciously accepted and donations in his memory can be made to the Dr. Charles L LeGrow Hospital Foundation.
