Terry Lenard Eckford

It is with sadness that the family of Terry Eckford announce the sudden passing of their brother and uncle.

Terry was born in Campbell River and went on to become first mate on tug boats, travelling the waters of the west coast of BC.

He was predeceased by his parents: Arthur and Nellie Eckford; and his brother, Stephen Eckford.

He will be missed by his sister, Gloria Presley of Merville; brothers: Merl (Diana) Eckford and Phillip (Linda) Eckford of Campbell River; his nephews: Trevor (Sara) Presley of Victoria, Brad Eckford and daughter Robin of Quesnel, Brian Eckford of Alberta, Wayne (Kristina) Eckford and children: Alysha, Ethan and new born Wyatt of Campbell River, Lance Eckford of Campbell River and Tim Eckford of Louisiana; his nieces: Heidi (Tim) Kratzman and children: Kailena and Thea of Comox, Mandy Eckford (Bud Braisher) and daughter Stevi of Golden, Andrea Eckford (Andy Phillips) of Tofino, Kristi King of Campbell River, Jeannette (Daryl) Hill and son, Jackson of Alberta and Stephanie Eckford (Rocky Vaneaton) of Alberta.

The family wishes to send a sincere thank you to the first responders: ambulance, RCMP and the firemen who were there to help. There will be no service but a private family gathering.

It would be appreciated that anyone wishing to make a donation in Terry’s name could do so to the Campbell River Hospital Foundation.
