Henry Drysdale Tait

April 4, 1928 – August 2, 2021
Henry Drysdale Tait, age 93, passed away peacefully August 2, 2021 at his daughters home in Langford, B.C. He was born 4 April 1928 in Vancouver, British Columbia to Henry and Mary Tait.
He married Margaret Macey, 31 Oct 1953 and lived in West Vancouver until 2000 when they moved to Sidney on Vancouver Island so as to be closer to family.
Henry worked with Westcoast Energy in finance, retiring at the age of 65 but proceeded to work with BC1 Call in finance on a casual basis.
His interests outside of the office included being a member of the Peninsula Emergency Program as he was a licenced amateur radio operator (VE7FYU), he was an avid lawn bowler with the Sidney Lawn Bowling Club and 5-pin bowler at Miracle Lanes in Sidney. He was also a big fan of the Big Band music.
Henry is survived by his daughter Patricia (Stu), Grandchildren Ryan (Mae) and Chelsea (Shane), Oliver, two great grandchildren Gabriel and Alexander, and many nephews and nieces.
He is predeceased by his wife Margaret, son Robert, daughter Angela, sister Mamie and his parents.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that consideration be given to donate to the Saanich Peninsula Hospital Palliative Care Unit.
There will be no service at Henry’s request.
