Born in Cambridge, he was a son of the late Frederick W. and Marie D. (Tehan) Downing. A veteran of the US Navy, he served during the Vietnam Era before being honorably discharged in 1971. Mr. Downing was a 34 year employee of the US Postal Service in both Waltham and Boston before retiring. He enjoyed following all the Boston pro sports teams.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by a daughter: Rachel A. DeForge and her husband Gregg of Wells, Maine; a sister: Denise Downing of Medway; two brothers: Bill Downing and his wife Margie of Florida and Dennis Downing and his wife Pearl of California, and many nieces and nephews.

Visiting hours are Monday May 21 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Boyle Bros. Funeral Home, 173 Union Ave., Framingham, with a brief prayer service to be held at 7:30 p.m. Burial is private and will be held at a later date.
