Davis Tannock (1932-2020)
A Progressive Labour Party stalwart and staunch union member has died.
Davis Tannock was 87.
The PLP said Mr Tannock, a plumber who ran the company that bore his name, was “also a notable member of the Bermuda Industrial Union and served in various capacities including vice-president of the plumbing and construction division”.
A family member last night said he was “a community activist and a true family man”.
Mr Tannock was also a member of the First Church of God in Pembroke.
A party spokeswoman offered condolences to his family. Mr Tannock, the son of John and Alice Tannock, came from the Cedar Hill area of Warwick.
He threw his hat in the political ring as a PLP candidate for Smith’s North in April 1968, but was unsuccessful.
The PLP said: “Mr Tannock was a lifetime member and continued his involvement in the party long after running by supporting numerous PLP candidates who followed him and ran in Smith’s Parish, even when the prospect of victory was slim.”
Mr Tannock is survived by his wife, Marie, and five children, Patrick, Mark, Theresa and Anthony Tannock, and Cheri Adcock.
