It is with profound sadness and shock that we announce the sudden, untimely passing of our dear brother, uncle and friend, Todd ‘Buddy’ Tighe on Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2016, at home.
Todd Clarence ‘Buddy’ Tighe was born in South Bar on July 16, 1961, where he loved and lived his life out.
Todd was employed with A&L Seafoods for many years where he made numerous friends, including Stuart, Bimbo and great buddy, Brian Fraser with whom he commuted daily. Todd was a common sight peddling through South Bar and the Pier, with a smile for everyone, stopping in for regular visits with his special Uncle Arch and good friend, Philip Quinn. He also enjoyed his many calls to Aunt ‘Mar’ discussing current events and recipes. Each Sunday when he could, was spent visiting his Mom and best friend’s grave in St. Alphonsus Cemetery. Todd enjoyed his Friday night dart league at the South Bar Fire Hall for many years with his beloved mother, Kaye, whose death two years ago left a deep void in Buddy’s life.
Buddy is survived by brothers, Kevin (Charlene), Glenn (Colleen), Freddie (Marguerite) and Jerry (Wanda); sisters, Earlene (Wally) and Connie (Rodney); uncles, Clarence ‘Arch’ MacPhail, John King, Wallace Tighe and his dear Aunt, Mar.

Buddy is predeceased by mother, Catherine ‘Kaye’ (MacPhail); father, Clarence Tighe; maternal grandparents, Clara and Jack MacPhail; paternal grandparents, Cassie and Thomas Tighe, as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
