Adney Tuttle died November 1, 2009 at the age of 78 on Salt Spring Island, BC. Adney is survived by his beloved wife Gwenyth and their three daughters, Alison of Kelowna, Sandra (Larry O’Gorman) of Ottawa, and Karen (Corey Sharman) of McKinney, Texas, along with five grandchildren: Sidney, Caroline, Kylie, Liam and Calum. He also leaves his brother William Tuttle and family of Medicine Hat, Alberta.

Adney met his wife and best friend Gwen in 1955 while they both worked in Williams Lake; Gwen as a registered nurse from Sydney, Australia and Adney as a constable with the RCMP. In 1964 Adney completed his commerce degree while attending Carleton University. In 1974 Adney spent a year at Laval University mastering French. He retired in Ottawa from the force as chief superintendent, and then transferred to the Solicitor General’s Office as a consultant. He and Gwen retired to the McLennan Valley, Salt Spring Island, where he traded in his red serge for flannel and riding boots for gumboots.

We wish to thank Dr. Ron Reznick and the nursing staff at Lady Minto Hospital for all of their support and compassion.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Lady Minto Hospital. A service will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, November 21, 2009 at the Community Gospel Chapel, 147 Vesuvius Bay Road. Friends are invited to join his family in celebrating Adney’s life at his home at 157 McLennan Drive, Salt Spring Island, that afternoon at 2:00 pm.
