June 7, 1995 – April 15, 2012
Tai was tragically and suddenly taken from us on Sunday, April 15, 2012 at the too young age of 16 years. Broken-hearted by his loss, we nevertheless remember the way Tai touched innumerable people during his life with his kind heart, his warm and calm nature, and his generous, giving spirit.
Tai was a high honours student at Bishop Grandin High School, where he excelled in all subjects. He had a particular facility for mathematics, which came to him effortlessly, and was an ardent reader, enjoying sci-fi, fantasy and action books. A born achiever with diverse interests, Tai had a poem published as a young boy, played piano, and more recently enjoyed his part-time job at the Macleod Trail Canadian Tire.
Tai was also an athlete, and played a huge range of sports. In soccer, he was a strong goalkeeper on many teams during his youth. Squash, golf, swimming and recently football were some of the many other sports he loved.
Tai was a devoted brother, son and friend. Astute with computers and technology, he served as personal i.t. support for numerous family and friends, participated in fundraising efforts for his sister’s band activities, and was always known for reaching out to help others. He also made a mean quesadilla.
A fun-loving spirit, Tai treasured spending time with his Grandpa – golfing and fishing. He spent many happy days at his family’s summer vacation place on Gleniffer Lake, boating and enjoying the outdoors with his lake friends. He loved hot beach holidays, and had travelled to Hawaii, Mexico and Cuba – where he was always up for adventures like zip lines and caving.
Tai is survived by his parents Patricia and Edward Wodynski, his sister Mikaila, half brother Shaun (Leona) Wodynski, niece Lidia, grandmother May Jasinski, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends.
