February 27, 1959 – April 7, 2016
It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our beloved husband, father and friend, Terrance (Terry) William Donald. After a brief but courageous battle with cancer, he passed away on April 7, 2016 at home surrounded by his family. He is survived by his wife, Diane Donald; sons Matt Donald (Mandy), Adam Donald, and Cale Grieve; daughter, Rebecca Grieve; granddaughter, Elaina; and brother, Robert Six (Darlene).
He was born February 27, 1959 in Port Moody to his mother, Phillis Donald (Chalmers) and father, William Donald. Spending 21 years of his youth at sea with the Royal Canadian Navy fighting for his country, he grew a love of travelling. In 2012, Terry’s group of friends grew immensely after joining Veterans UN/NATO Canada. During his later years, Terry and Diane enjoyed travelling across North America on their Gold Wing motorcycle. He will be remembered for his contagious smile, frequent laughter and big personality.
A Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday, July 9th, 1:00pm at the C.R. Legion, 301-11 Avenue.
The family would like to thank all doctors, nurses and support staff who helped him through his difficult journey. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his honour to the Campbell River Red Cross.
