Robert C. Tuck (1927-2015) was born in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia. He graduated from Dalhousie University with an arts degree, then trained for the Anglican priesthood at St Michael's College in Wales before being ordained in 1954. Tuck served at churches in Nova Scotia before working at St. Mary's in Summerside from 1964 to 1975, and was priest in charge of King's County for 1975 through 1993. He was also a Canon of St. Peter's Church in Charlottetown. Robert Tuck was a great-nephew of the 19th-century Prince Edward Island architect William Critchlow Harris. Following in his great-uncle's footsteps, Tuck also designed Anglican churches built in Montague and Souris. Tuck received recognition for his historical scholarship with awards from the PEI Museum & Heritage Foundation, and the Canadian Historical Association, as well as an honorary doctorate from the University of King's College in Halifax.
