Terry Pace Obituary, Death – Regarding Terence “Terry” Pace: On Friday, December 4, 2020, at the age of 75, he passed away at home in a calm and serene manner with his family at his side. Dedicated partner of Gill for the past 54 years. devoted father of Clare Schmehl, who is married to Mark, and Fiona Pace, who is married to Christian Rock. Connor, Audrey, Hudson, and Mathilda hold this precious grandchild very dear to their hearts.
Terry has always had a thirst for new experiences. He was an outstanding mechanical engineer and spent the first 27 years of his life in England, where he also met Gill, the girl he had a crush on in elementary school. After that, he perused the local newspaper, marked advertisements for job openings, and took his family on a trip across the world, where they tried out various careers in South Africa, England, Canada, and Oklahoma before settling on a position in Canada. Terry and Gill spent the most of his retirement years traveling the world or living in Florida, depending on which option Terry chose.
And when he wasn’t gone, it’s probable that he was out with Gill on a “Sunday drive” that happened to be going by a great lunch location as well as a casino. When he wasn’t away, he was probably gambling. Terry/Dad/Grandy was a family guy first and foremost, and this aspect of his life was very important to him. He had a wonderful amount of love for his tiny family, and he was always there to lend his support and guidance whenever it was required. Recently, a favorite activity for the whole family has been competing against Grandy in Scrabble games. We did so very infrequently.
But I believe that everyone increased their vocabulary of terms with only two letters. Both word games and life in general will be significantly altered with his absence. A private viewing will be conducted after the cremation, which has already taken place. A memorial service that is open to the public is planned to take place at a later time. Henry Walser Funeral Home, located at 519-749-8467, has been entrusted with the arrangement of funeral services. Donations to the Salvation Army would be a statement of compassion that the family would be grateful for (cards for making donations may be found at the funeral home).
