Douglas Anthony Tozzini
May 31, 1943 - Feb 22, 2021
Doug was born in the Bronx, New York to Aldo Tozzini and Dina Cecchi Tozzini.  At 18 months of age he moved to Redwood City with his extended family.  He attended Serra High School, College of San Mateo, and San Jose State University. 
In 1965 Doug married Leslie Lynn Gould and in 1969 they added a son to the family, Gian Piero Tozzini.  Gian added a special daughter-in-law, Erica, to the family.  Doug was a master of many trades; he served as a Police officer in Redwood City and later with the City of Brisbane, as well as an instructor at the Police Academy.  He was a machinist and had his own business, as well as teaching industrial arts.  Doug also had a business importing cars from Italy, and worked as an analyst for HIDTA.  He loved sailing and motorcycles.  Doug and Leslie spent many wonderful hours traveling, especially enjoying trips to Italy, and always learning new things.  Doug and Leslie were always learning while raising their son Gian, and were thankful to God for the experience of parenting.  
Doug fought a long hard battle with Alzheimer's Disease.  He will be greatly missed by his wife, son, daughter-in-law and his many wonderful friends! Doug, rest in peace.

I truly enjoyed our dinner dates and was looking forward to more but time wouldn't wait for the pandemic to be over. I will remember the happy times we shared.

Met him in 1955 at Hoover School. Great guy with a good sense of humor and a very distinctive walk. Enjoyed touching bases with he and Leslie at all the Sequoia High reunions. Will miss hearing about all his adventures.
