Taig’s dog, Cooper, lays saddened by the door. Head hung, and no amount of consoling or bribing has helped – he lost his boy! Penticton lost a great person – someone who would have helped anyone. Taig was the most non-judgemental being I had ever encountered. As a Mom, this was a both a good thing and a bad thing; he was generous beyond belief, offering out his family home to people who had nothing, like his friend George who lost his own mother in a bike accident, or Tom who’s family home had become unsafe.Tom confessed, “Taig saved my life.” His friend Eric said, “He was sometimes my only friend.” As a Mom, I thought his non-judgemental ways put him at risk, too. His money was the first o be spent in the group, and I sometimes felt he was being taken advantage of. Taig never cared – he loved people & having a good time with them, not the money. If you took it, it meant you needed it more than he did. He would have protected any woman or dog from mistreatment, unconditionally… he always defended the underdog. Taig was hard working, dedicated, and loyal. His construction jobs were the heartbeat of his adult life. He used to say to me, “Mom, I just get it!” He loved his job with Gary Stocker, and worked hard to be a craftsman. Resourceful and hard working would be words that any of his workmates would attest. No amount of tears or sympathy can bring back the life and events that happened that early morning. Family is putting every effort into healing and praying someone saw something that will help the investigating officers. I am now a mother that has lost a son. My heart goes out to all other mothers who have experienced the same. A GoFundMe was created to help Tracey Savage and her family through the sudden & devastating loss of her son, Taig. https://www.gofundme.com/f/thesavagefamilyfund
