It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Terry at the North Shore Hospice on June 12th, 2013 at the age of 78.

Terry was born and raised in Bury, Lancashire, England. He attended Eastward Junior and Senior Comprehensive Schools before receiving his training at Yates Duxbury as a Mechanical Engineer. An avid and very talented soccer player Terry played for the Bury Boys before moving on to play with the Manchester United Boys, a semi professional league as goal keeper. In 1957 Terry immigrated to Vancouver where he continued to play soccer before being sidelined with a knee injury but continued on in a coaching capacity with the young team pi9303The Bidetspi9304 at his much loved Mahon Park.

In his professional career Terry worked for Vancouver based H.A. Simons, then the American firm Formex residing in Oregon, Tennessee and New Hampshire. When he returned to Vancouver he found employment with Sandwell & Co. where he became their consultant for the Pacific Rim. He then went on to start his own paper processing plant in South East Asia, residing in Hong Kong and then the Philippines. Terry loved to travel and experienced new adventures and was able to do that throughout his working career. Terry returned to Vancouver in 1987 and over the next ten years worked as a consultant on various projects. Terry officially retired in 1998.

Upon his return to Vancouver he became involved with the West Vancouver Cricket Club, Lynn Valley Legion and the Army & Navy Veterans Club where he reunited with many of his friends from his early days in Vancouver. He was always ready to share a glass of beer and swap some stories.

Predeceased by daughter Gail in 1985 Terry will be greatly missed by Anita his wife of 30 years, children Lesley (Graham), Susan (David) grandchildren Ashley (Robert), Haydn, Richard (Melissa), Josie and great granddaughter Gracelyn.
