of Osprey, age 45, died on March 2, 2017 while hiking amidst the magnificent natural beauty he loved in Zion National Park, Utah. A native of Illinois, Tate was baptized a Christian in the Lutheran faith as an infant. Tate retired from a career in banking at a young age to focus on family life, writing, volunteering and golfing. In his second career, he authored several novels. A dedicated volunteer, he worked as a senior crew leader for Habitat for Humanity Sarasota, helped at Gulf Gate Library, and taught Junior Achievement. An active member of Mission Valley Golf & Country Club, Tate achieved the title of "Club Champion" in 2016 and took on the challenge of restoring the club's fleet of classic pull carts. We will all miss his irreverent sense of humor. Tate is survived by many members of his loving family, including his wife Sonja and sons Rowan and Calder; parents Linda and Micheal; brother Judd, sister-in-law Julia Kazaks, nephew Clay and niece Lucy; several aunts, uncles and cousins; and many close friends. He was predeceased by his grandparents Mabel and Micheal Volino, Sr. and Jeanette and Harry Feck. A celebration of Tate's life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 8, at Church of the Palms, 3224 Bee Ridge Rd., Sarasota, Florida. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to any of the following organizations in support of causes important to Tate: Habitat for Humanity Sarasota (www.habitatsrq.org), The First Tee Sarasota/Manatee (www.thefirstteesarasotamanatee.org), or the National Park Foundation (www.nationalparks.org).
