Tavis Joseph Menzies

Born in Port McNeill, BC

August 18, 1980-October 17, 2014

Taken from us too soon.

It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of our Son, Brother and Uncle early Friday evening in a car accident. Tavis lived life to it’s very fullest. He didn’t do anything halfway, it was always full steam, hair straight back, extreme adventure. As an extreme skier, he was sponsored by Faction ski’s. He was also an experienced rock climber, a fisherman, and most recently a logger. Whether for Halloween or just a good party, he had a costume for that. He loved being in nature, hiking, foraging for mushrooms, spelunking, camping in tents and in snow caves, you name it, he did it.

Tavis had a great sense of humor and the biggest heart. He made friends everywhere he went and came to almost every family gathering when he could. He was an amazing and loving Son, Brother, Uncle and Friend. He leaves a hole in our hearts that will not be able to be filled.

His spirit will remain at the top of every mountain, in every beautiful sunset, every extreme ski run and adventure, and in our hearts forever.

Survived by his loving parents Ken and Debbie Menzies, Brother Doug (Angela) Menzies, Sister Sabrina (Grant) Currie, Nephews Owen Barlak and Wyatt Menzies and Niece Oceanna Currie as well as many Aunts, Uncles and cousins.

Memorial service at the Lion’s Hall, Port McNeill, Saturday afternoon, October 25, 2014, 1:30pm.
