I remember Terry from my relationship with Carol and Doug Major and from the former Etobicoke Board of Education where he was a superintendent and I was a beginning teacher.
Terry was one of the first people to welcome me when I joined the board in 1974. At the board he was respected for his competence and loved for his warmth with people. Terry was an example of great leadership and was regarded with admiration long after he retired.
Memory of Terry will continue with all who knew him.
We exchanged e-mails at Christmas and everything seemed fine. This week I had an e-mail from
Diane Salter and we always mention the days we worked for and with Terry. He was such a fine gentleman and we both had many happy memories. I'm pleased to hear that he didn't have a lot of suffering to go through. I also remember being at their home and how generous both Vi and Terry were with all of us.
I first met Terry at the Radar Training Center in Kingston in early 1941, and even then his bag pipes led us on many route marches.
In Post war years had opportunity to see his many skills in leading he annual Can Radar Association reunions and the publication and editing of our magazine Radar Reflection .
My condolences to Vi and family
Terry had many responsibilities as superintendent as he was in charge of 4 year and 5 year programs and all of the different technical subjects for the city of Etobicoke.
He also administered the Night School Program (2000 plus students).
I considered him as a mentor and a friend and he will be sadly missed.
