Terry was an avid golfer, curler, gardener, and bridge player. He loved being surrounded by family and friends. He had many long-term friends, some dating back to his days in public school. We won’t forget his regaling us with tunes on his harmonica, songs, dad jokes, and swan dives into the pool. He was generous, donating to the many charities he supported. After retiring from the Catholic Children’s Aid Society, he continued as a volunteer, assisting families in need. He was a proud Grand Knight with the Knights of Columbus.
