NORFOLK, Terrence (Terry) Edward

 We are saddened to announce Terry’s passing at the age of 92. Terry was born and raised in Leicester, England. In his words: “I had a bloody great childhood because no one was watching.” He served with the British Army in post-WWII Germany and, after returning to England, met and married Barbara Spawton. They moved to Canada in 1956, settling in Ontario where Susan and Peter were born. Terry was very successful in the art supply industry, first as a salesman and then as a manager, which resulted in cross-country transfers between Vancouver and Toronto. After separating from Barbara in 1967, he married Lorraine Wiens in 1972, and together they raised Randy and Leslie. Shortly after Terry’s retirement in 1995, Terry and Lorraine moved from Victoria to Salt Spring Island to be closer to Leslie and her family, where he joined the Salt Spring Golf Club. They had been married for 43 years when Lorraine passed away in January 2015. Terry was predeceased by his sister Doreen, his sons Peter and Randy, and his wife Lorraine. He will be greatly missed by his daughter Susan (Bruce); grandchildren Adam (Janet), Laura (Chris), and Kirk; his daughter Leslie (Chris); grandchildren Allie (Morgan), Liam, Jaci, Zoe, and their father Paul (Diane); as well as seven great-grandchildren. Also important on this list are his treasured friends, especially the amazing Meadowbrook community where he will always be affectionately known as the coffee guy. The family would like to thank Christie and Hannah at Haywards, the staff at Lady Minto, the incredibly supportive Meadowbrook staff and residents, and family and friends near and far. A celebration of Terry’s life will be held at a later date.
