Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
I played Rep basketball with Terry (we called him "T") at Scollard Hall in 1968-69. For practice we would play 2 on 2 pick-up ball, me and my best friend Ross Bonany against T and Greg Markland. I would guard T because we were both over 6 feet and the other 2 guys were small guards and would guard each other. Ross passed away last month, I don't know what happened to Greg. T's favourite songs that he would hum all the time were Dizzy by Tommy Roe and For Once in my Life by Stevie Wonder. My deepest sympathy to the family, I haven't seen T in 53 years but remember him well like it was yesterday ... - Posted by: Andy Kovats (Friend) on: Dec 10, 2022
Terry and I shared roots with St. Alban’s Church. Elsie spoke of him often and with great pride. Condolences to the family. I am so sorry for your loss. - Posted by: Valerie (Kelly) Tryon (Capreol ) on: Mar 03, 2021
My deepest condolences to his wife, children extended family and friends. I just learnt of this and I am shocked and saddened that we have lost Terry. Terry was a great man and a pleasure to know. He was an educated and knowledgeable person who was always a delight to speak with. I feel personal loss that he is gone but I am devastated for his wife and children with whom he will not be able to share his retirement. I feel fortunate for having known Terry. He was a great family man, father and husband. He will be missed. - Posted by: Ian Trembath (Friend) on: Dec 23, 2020
