Samuel Whitaker Tate Obituary
SAMUEL WHITAKER TATE (1934-2016) died peacefully at his home in Newport Beach, Ca. on January 31, 2016. He is survived by his wife Teddi; his four children; and his eight grandchildren. Sam grew up in Riverside, Ca. and graduated from Riverside Polytechnic High School. He served 10 years in the Marine Reserves while attending college and began his career as a civil engineer with Southern California Edison Company. Sam was active with the Newport Beach Sister City Association and The Boy Scouts of America where he loved to teach both boys and adults the lessons of scouting. Sam was a gentle, caring man who touched the lives of every person he came in contact with. His big smile and sense of humor made him a favorite among all his many friends and family. He will be greatly missed by all, especially his close friends and family in Newport Beach. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to The Boy Scouts of America in Sam's name to BSA, 1211 E. Dyer Rd., Santa Ana, CA 92705
