Philip M. Tait
unknown - October 6, 2013
Philip M. Tait, 61 Grangeville, Idaho, formerly of Mountain Home, Idaho, and Lincoln, Mich., passed away Sunday, Oct. 6, 2013, with family and love ones by his side.
He is survived by his mother, Barbara J. Von Nyveimhyen of Panama, Fla.; Karen A. Kent of Narragansett, R.I.; Marjorie K. Tait of St. Johns, Mich.; Dorothy A. Frederick of Grayling, Mich.; cousin and hunting buddy, Charles (Butch) Tait of Lincoln, Mich.; and beloved partner, Judy Stapleton of Grangeville.
He was preceded in death by son, Adam M. Tait of Mountain Home; and father, Wm. Ralph Tait of Mikado, Mich.
Phil had a tender heart that touched many people. He enjoyed the beauty of the great outdoors and the challenge of hunting the high ridges of the mountains looking for that trophy elk or white tail deer which reflected in his great story telling. He had many interests from fishing mountain streams, trapping, perfecting his recipes, collecting nostalgia antiques, working with wood, and tending his garden and fruit trees. He was a conservationist, an excavating engineer, a successful rancher, civil engineer, forester and highly successful business owner of Tait Aggregate.
The memorialization by cremation with a life celebration is slated in 2014.
