Victor John Panchyshyn
November 7, 1948 ~ June 20, 2021

Honey, Dad, Papa. Many people never get their life stories written. We are blessed to have yours permanently written on our hearts. It is with great sorrow that we must say goodbye, for now, as you join your parents, your nephew and your brother moving on from this physical world after a mere 72 years. Thank you for sharing your love of rusty old cars, grand adventures and, of course, flying through the open skies in one of your many airplanes. Our halls will forever echo with the laughter of the caring, passionate, funny, and knowledgeable man we all loved.



Celebration of Dad's Life

For those that wish to join us, a Celebration of Dad will be held Saturday, July 3, 2021
at the family residence. Words of comfort are scheduled to begin at 3pm.

Terry Louise MacLeod (nee Roddick)
1956 ~ 2021


On Wednesday, June 2, 2021, Terry Louise MacLeod (nee Roddick) passed away after her brief battle with cancer with her family by her side.

Terry grew up in Eureka, Nova Scotia, with her parents, Betty and Raymond Roddick, and her seven other siblings, Betty Ann (Robert) of West River Station, NS, Earl (Mary) of Culls Harbour, Nfld, Margie (Wayne) of New Glasgow, NS, Ellen (Jay) of Frasers Mountain, NS, June (John) of Thorburn, NS, her little brother Dougie (Susan) of Lorne, NS, and her niece who was like a little sister Bonnie (Ken) of Morinville, Alberta.


Terry was married to Art “Artie” MacLeod (of Saltsprings, NS) for almost 42 years. They went to school together in West Pictou, Pictou County, Nova Scotia and started dating after they moved out west to Alberta for work. Terry was a sassy, smart, determined woman, in the best way possible, which made her work for many years as a house mom at Oakhill Boys Ranch outside of Bon Accord, Alberta, perfect for her. She loved to cook, garden, woodwork, sew, dance, and grandparent.


Terry would like to remind everyone that this is not goodbye. Terry is now with her predeceased daughter, Crystal; her Momma and Father; her Sissy, Betty Ann; and her dog, Buddy.


She is leaving behind many loved ones already mentioned as well as her daughter, Jennifer (Nathan & Isla); all of her wonderful in-laws on the MacLeod side of the family; too many nieces and nephews to name; and her many, many friends in Bon Accord, Nova Scotia and Florida.


We would like to thank the many amazing nurses and doctors who cared for her so compassionately over the last few months.
