Terence Dowthwaite Obituary

Terry Dowthwaite, 76, received his call to be with Jesus, on March 21, 2014 at home in Simi Valley, CA. He was a loving husband, father, papa, brother and friend, and will be truly missed by all.

Born July 10, 1937 in Morecambe, England, Terry married Doreen in 1957 and they moved to California in 1964. After starting as a hospital junior buyer, through hard work he moved up the corporate ladder to VP of Purchasing. Initially working at Children's Hospital of L.A., he moved to St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, Nu Med, and Paracelsus before retiring in 2001. While living in North Hollywood, the family was a member of Holy Rosary before later moving to Chatsworth and attending St. John Eudes. Terry enjoyed spending time with his children in Indian Guides and baseball, and coaching his son's youth soccer team, Manchester United. In later years he and Doreen enjoyed country-western dancing and R.V. camping.

Terry is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Doreen; five children, Sharron, Andrew, David, Travis and Michele; six granddaughters, Amy Nelson, Megan Anderson, Sarah, Alex, Savannah and Hailey Dowthwaite; grandson, Teegan Dowthwaite; and sister, Pamela Gilbert of England.
