Terence Donald (Terry) TURNBULL

TURNBULL, Terence Donald (Terry) died April 3, 2011 at age 70. A tenacious fight with cancer ended in the Nanaimo Hospital with his daughter and sister by his side. Terry is survived by mother Ilda Turnbull of Summerland, wife Lynn, brother Gerald, sister Joan (Les) Marles, daughter Suzanne (Derrick), son William (Jennifer) and grandchildren Sarah, Savannah and Marcus. He was born Oct. 24, 1940 and grew up playing by the rivers and fields in Sullivan and Elgin, B.C. Terry served in the RCAF with his final career in Federal Fisheries.  His family explored many of the outdoor wonders of Canada with him in Alberta, Manitoba, NWT and B.C. He was known for his rectitude and loyalty to work and family. His sense of humour endeared him to family, friends and fishermen. They had many affectionate nick names for him. He was very well read and had a keen mind for world affairs and history. Terry was passionate about his love for his wife Lynn, golf (yes in that order), cross-country skiing (biathlon), hunting and fishing.  He was a knowledgeable and patient teacher of the outdoors to his children.  We are saddened that he will not have more time to share with us and his grandchildren, but are relieved he can now rest in peace. http://pacificfisheryofficers.org/in_memory/turnbull.html
