HCol John Everard Terry (Ret’d)
We regret to advise of the death of Honorary Colonel John Everard Terry (Ret’d) in Sydney NS on 23 April 2014 at age 89. John proudly served as Honorary Colonel of the 45th Field Engineer Squadron in Sydney. He was devoted to his country, his community, his church, and his work. He always spoke highly of colleagues from University College of Cape Breton, Sydney Tar Ponds Clean-Up Inc., Maritime Provinces Higher Education Commission, Nova Scotia Eastern Institute of Technology, and Dominion Coal Company Limited.
He enjoyed many lasting friendships through professional and charitable organizations including the Association of Professional Engineers of Nova Scotia, Mining Society of Nova Scotia, Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, Military Engineers Association of Canada, Canadian Corps of Commissionaires, Rotary, United Way, and Red Cross.
After his retirement he spent his spare time reading at St. Theresa's parish and volunteering at Ashby Elementary School's breakfast program.
