It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Terry White in Cranbrook,B.C. on Wednesday, November 20th. Terry passed away peacefully with his family by his side after suffering a stroke. He had been living with kidney disease for the past few years.
He leaves behind his best friend and forever devoted wife Shirley, their daughters Wendy, her son Colin Wright (Angela), Cindy, son Michael (Teresa) their family Ryan (Alicia), Kyle (Amanda) and Jolene (Don Van). Nine great grandchildren, Hayden, Gaven, Genevieve, Kate, Charlie, Isaac, Maggie, Logan and Alex.
Terry was born in Campbell River, B.C., 1933, raised on Vancouver Island, and came to the Vulcan, AB area in his late teens. He farmed, raised cattle, as well as running a photography business. Terry and Shirley retired to his beloved province of B.C. and made Fairmont Hot Springs their home for the past 20 years.
His love of life and adventure followed him all his days. He was a devoted husband and father, Grandfather, and Great Grandfather. He enjoyed being a Scoutmaster, private pilot, scuba diver, skier, golfer and artist. His passion and energy touched so many. The courage and strength shown as he battled his health issues was an inspiration to all who knew him. His sense of humour never failed. He had excellent care with doctors and medical staff in Invermere, Cranbrook and Trail, for which he and his family are forever grateful.
A gathering will take place at the family home November 30th, 2-4 pm, 5121 Wilder Loop Road, Fairmont Hot Springs. A graveside service is planned for the spring in Vulcan, AB. In lieu of flowers, donation can be made to the charity of your choice.
