Stamford Advocate (Sunday) - - Life Tributes -

Harold Mays Tague, Jr., of Carmel, Cal­i­for­nia for the past six years, passed away peace­fully after a long ill­ness on Oc­to­ber 12, 2018. Hal was born in New York on May 25, 1936 to the late He­len (Meyer) and Cap­tain (US Army) Harold M. Tague, who later re­tired as a full Colonel after ser­vice in China in WW II. The fam­ily moved to Den­ver, Colorado when Hal was young and he grew up in, and had a life­long love of, Colorado, for its beauty and its recre­ational op­por­tu­ni­ties. Hal was an avid fish­er­man and skier, and from 1992 to 2014 had sec­ond homes in Key­stone, Colorado that let him fully en­joy those pur­suits.

Hal was first mar­ried to Mar­i­lyn Woods, now of Stam­ford, Con­necti­cut, with whom he had two sons, Harold M. (III) of Pa­cific Grove, Cal­i­for­nia and Wil­liam W. of Stam­ford. He was greatly loved and will be greatly missed by his wife of 45 years, Janet (Hickey) who re­mains in Carmel, and their son Christo­pher (Lucy Cu­tolo) and beloved grand­son, Con­rad, who re­side in New York City. Hal also is sur­vived by his three broth­ers, Berkley (An­nemarie), Lin­coln and Ge­orge, all of whom re­side in Den­ver.

From an early age (12, ac­cord­ing to fam­ily leg­end) Hal talked about his de­ter­mi­na­tion to move back East and make his way in the in­vest­ment or fi­nance world. He suc­ceeded ad­mirably in do­ing so. He was so de­ter­mined that he en­listed in the Army after grad­u­at­ing from East High in Den­ver, so that he could even­tu­ally ob­tain the ben­e­fits of the G.I. Bill of Rights. He ac­tu­ally did his ba­sic train­ing in Mon­terey, at Ford Ord, and served as Pfc. in the fi­nance corps at Lom­poc. After the Army, he grad­u­ated with a B.S. from the Wharton School of the Univer­sity of Penn­syl­va­nia. He then did make his way, ini­tially in Philadel­phia. For the next forty plus years he worked in New York in a va­ri­ety of roles, ini­tially as se­cu­ri­ties an­a­lyst at East­man Dil­lon, Union Se­cu­ri­ties and then with a few firms, in­clud­ing as VP at Bankers Trust, in­volved in the man­age­ment of cor­po­rate pen­sion fund as­sets. His last decade prior to re­tire­ment was spent as Pres­i­dent and Chief In­vest­ment Of­fi­cer of Over­brook Man­age­ment, New York, NY. That was his most ful­fill­ing and re­ward­ing job in his long ca­reer, man­ag­ing the phil­an­thropic Over­brook Foun­da­tion. Dur­ing all those years, he and his fam­ily were res­i­dents of Stam­ford, Con­necti­cut.

Prior to his fi­nal ill­ness, Hal had been a mem­ber of the Penn Club in New York and the Old Cap­i­tal Club in Carmel, as well as the River Course Golf Club in Key­stone and the Te­hama Golf Club in Carmel.

A pri­vate ser­vice for the fam­ily was held in Mon­terey on Oc­to­ber 16. A Cel­e­bra­tion of Life ser­vice will be held at a later date in Novem­ber. In lieu of flow­ers, the fam­ily re­quests memo­ri­als be sent to the Alzheimer’s Foun­da­tion (alzfdn. org) to sup­port re­search against this dread­ful dis­ease.
