MCGILLION, Terence Gerard
Mr. Terence Gerard McGillion of Vancouver passed away on January 13, 2014. Predeceased by his brother Kenneth (2008), Terence is survived by his adoring parents, Janet and Michael McGillion, of Niagara-on-the-Lake and his loving siblings Brian (Teri), sister-in-law Angela, Jennifer (Eugene), Christopher (Krista), Paul (Courtney), and Michael Jr. (Heather). He is also dearly missed by his nieces and nephews: Jody (Woody), Erin (Tony), Kyran, Seamus, Brenna, Quinn, Drew, Paddy, and Hugh; his great niece Emily, and great nephews: Luca, Christian, and Ethan. Lifelong friends, Candace and Glen Marshall, Bernadette Lynch, Jamie Gilbert, Chris Toye, Fred Stewart, and John Staines also share in his loss. Terence was born in Dublin, Ireland and raised in Paisley, Scotland; his formative years were spent in Niagara, Ontario. Most of Terence's adult life was spent in Vancouver, his home. His family and friends are prodigiously proud of his academic achievements including a Bachelor of Arts from King's College, Dalhousie University, and a Master of Liberal Arts from Simon Fraser University. Terence's exceptional talents in the culinary arts and hospitality services will be long remembered. Terence will be forever mourned and his legacy- characterized by impeccable taste, wry humor, integrity, and literary prowess and intellect-lives on with all those who cherish him, so dearly. In lieu of flowers, Terence's family and friends would appreciate donations (tax deductible) in support of a commemorative bench, to be installed in the Stanley Park Rose Garden:
