Tut passed peacefully at Victoria General Hospital seven months to the hour after his beloved wife, Carole, after living with bladder cancer.

Tut was pre-deceased by Carole, sisters Katharine Cameron and Pat Dalziel, and son-in-law Tom Stobart.

Tut was one of the founding members of the Victoria Racquet Club and enjoyed playing and coaching squash, badminton and tennis. He followed in his father’s footsteps in the roadbuilding industry and was an owner with Victoria Paving and Island Asphalt in Victoria and Tayco Paving in Courtenay. He was a president of the BC Roadbuilder’s Association and was well-respected in the industry. Tut found great joy in his marriage, large blended family, travel and his many friends in Courtenay, Victoria and Palm Desert. Following retirement, golf became a huge part of his life and he and Carole enjoyed many trips, friendships and social events that revolved around golf.

A Celebration of his well-lived life will be announced at a later date. He will be missed.
