Terry ISON

Terry Ison

On September 2nd, Terry Ison suffered a stroke. It was sudden and quick.

At the time, he was doing one of the things he enjoyed most — playing chess — with the love of his life, Sheryl.

Terry was just three weeks short of his 81st birthday.

Terry loved Salt Spring: first the sailing and later the many trails to explore, and the wonderful people he met.

He is dearly missed by Sheryl, his sister Joan, her sons Mike (Jan) and Robert (Joanne), their families, and the many brothers, sisters, cousins, nieces and nephews on Sheryl’s side of the family.

Our deep thanks and appreciation to Terry’s doctor, David Butcher, and the caring, loving staff of Lady Minto Hospital, and the Royal Jubilee who assisted Terry in his final weeks.

By Terry’s request, no service was held. Our thanks to Hayward’s Funeral Service for their assistance in helping Sheryl fulfill Terry’s wish to be buried in his parents’ grave in England last week.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Lady Minto Hospital or the charity of your choice.
