Terry referred to himself as a “Goofy Newfie”. Terry was a bobby with the Wiltshire Constabulary in England for 3 years and Military Policeman with RAF, as a dog handler. He proudly served with the Edmonton Police Service for 37 years. Terry also had many hobbies including stamps, coins, and police memorabilia collecting, Military and ship modelling. He was a member of Alberta Model Ships, Alberta Model Soldier Societies, and Edmonton Police Museum. He loved dogs, soccer, and was a diehard Pompey fan. He had a great sense of humour and there wasn’t a poop or pee story he didn’t love. There are fond memories of whisker moustache kisses, and great storytelling. Terry was a man of strength, wisdom, and courage.

It is fitting and honourable that Terry passed on Remembrance Day!!

A special thank you to the staff of the palliative care unit at Foyer Lacombe in St. Albert for their loving care and compassion.
