It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Terry Klos whose life on this earth ended peacefully in his sleep on the morning of February 1, 2022, at the age of 77.
Survived by his wife Stephie, son Chris (Melanie), grandchildren, Thorsten and Apollo, and brother Bob (Judy, Cody) Klos.
He will also be missed by his extended family and many close friends.
Terry loved cruising in his classic cars and always looked forward to hanging out at a Sunday night car show during the summers. He'd visit with friends, swap stories, and entertain the crowd with a light show and loud rock music coming from the trunk of his car. Most of the time, you'd probably hear a few tunes from his favourite band, the Rolling Stones.
He saw them live many times. In fact, he went as far as Paris, France with his family to see a Rolling Stones concert. Whether it be by plane, train, or automobile, Terry really enjoyed travelling across North America with family and friends. But his favourite place to visit was Hawaii. He referred to it as heaven on earth.
This is probably the reason almost every shirt in Terry's wardrobe was a Hawaiian-style shirt. This suited his personality to a tee; bright, colourful, and unique.
In the last few years of his life, Terry found the most joy playing with his grandsons, Thorsten and Apollo. He cherished his time with them and couldn't wait until their next visit. He loved spoiling them, snuggling, and watching them learn new things.
In accordance with Terry's wishes, cremation has taken place and no formal service will be held. Interment will be at All Saints Cemetery at a future date.
Terry lived life on his terms making every moment count.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • Terry and his wife Steffi were friends of my parents since before I was born. When I was a little girl I would go to Terry's house and garage with my dad, which I remember clearly. As an adult, I did not see him much except one day last summer. It was August and I was busy painting inside my dad's barn and Terry pulled up in his fancy car looking for my dad. He decided to wait for my dad to come home and he sat with me for hours as I painted and painted. He learned all about my bees, told me funny stories, talked about how much he loved Hawaii and his cute grandchildren and he spoke very fondly of his wife Steffi. He told me a story about how he had originally bought the car he was driving that day for Steffi, but she didn't like it because it went too fast so he kept it for himself! He also spoke very fondly of my father and held him in high regard which meant a lot to me as Terry had known my mom and dad for over 50 years. Terry was exactly as I had always remembered since I was a little kid: loud, happy, funny and loud. Ha. Ha. He was clearly enjoying life and everything it had to offer. My deepest condolences to Steffi, Chris and the rest of their family. Terry was a person you could never forget, and I thank him for his longstanding, loyal friendship with my father and our family. God bless and may he rest in peace. - Posted by: Brandy C. (Family friend) on: Feb 27, 2022

  • It is with very heavy heart that today I read of Terry's passing. I knew Terry for many years as we did many crazy things together but the memories I treasure the most was when the gang got together for our snowmobile jaunts out at Gull Lake. Stef my heart goes out to you and your family. I know it has been many years but I hope you remember me. God bless and RIP - Posted by: Bob sands (Friend) on: Feb 05, 2022
