Biographical Comments
Terry fought an epic battle with cancer for over 2 years, but is finally free.

He was born in Liverpool England, and his family moved to Canada in 1961. His love of “home” and family in England never left him and in later years, he and Marti would go back whenever possible. But in Canada he found new loves in the people and in nature. When their family was young, Terry and Marti did many camping, hiking and sailing trips with the kids, dear friends and family.

Terry became a firefighter in 1981. He was a dedicated member who loved the job and had great friendships within it.

He was an artist with a brush, a camera, a hammer and a guitar.

Terry and Marti loved to travel and were able to celebrate their 50th anniversary with family and close friends, and then took one more trip to the UK to be with his family there.

He leaves behind his wife Marti, son Sean (Shawna), daughter Cate (Cam) and his three beloved grandsons, Taydem, Ronan and Callum. Cherished cousins, second cousins, nieces, nephews and aunt all had a special place in his heart.
