TERRY, Frank Lennard

April 30,2014

The tide recedes, but leaves behind bright seashells in the sand. The sun goes down, but gentle warmth still lingers on the land. The music stops, and yet it echoes on in sweet refrain. For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains.

It is with sad hearts the family of Frank Lennard Terry share his passing on April 30, 2014.

Frank had a kind gentle soul, a great work ethic, a fierce love of family, and a very rigid time schedule.

Frank was born in Vancouver on December 23, 1939, to Harold and Frances Terry. Frank completed his education in Vancouver and his storied working history began on the boats that served the BC Coast.

Frank married Judy Higgins in 1962 and they had two children; a son Lorne and a daughter Lisa. Frank lost Judy to cancer in 1994.

Frank met Karen in 2001, they married in 2003, and became a blended family of one daughter, three sons, two granddaughters, and three grandsons.

Frank leaves his son Lorne, daughter Lisa (Rod), granddaughters Katie and Madison. He also leaves his wife Karen; her sons Hugh (Marnie) Gurney and grandsons Austin and Robert and son Scott (Amy) Gurney and new grandson Carson; brother-in-law and sister-in-law Stu and Kathy Morrison; brother-in-law Bill Higgins; sister-in-law Merry Meredith, and sister-in-law Florence Terry.

Frank was a true “gentle” man, and loyal friend. His passing has left an empty space in all our hearts.

There will be no service at Frank’s request. A private family service followed by a burial are his wishes.

Frank’s family extends an invitation to friends to attend an Open House celebrating Frank’s life, Saturday, May 10 from 1 - 4pm at his home on 651 Nelson Road, Campbell River. Please come and tell us your stories and memories of Frank. We would
