Terry James “Bert” Carter passed away on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 surrounded by his family. Terry was the beloved husband of Nancy (nee Maikawa) and adored father of Melissa, Michael (Laura), Jennifer (Sarah), and Kimiko. Predeceased by parents John & Florence, father-in-law Kiyoshi. Will be deeply missed by mother-in-law Eiko; Aunt Lois; siblings John (Jan), Rosemary (Terry), Rusty (Cheryl), Heather (Kevin), Tracey (Wayne), and Susie (Michael) and all extended family members. Terry was an amazing man who spent his life creating a happy, secure and loving home for his family. He relished time spent with his loved ones: coaching hockey and t-ball; summer trips to the cottage or picnics at the beach; and a good walk with his pug, Hope. He was a constant cheerleader in all his children’s endeavours. Being kind and gentle, he was always at the ready to lend a helping hand. As a husband, he was a best friend who always made Nancy laugh and filled her heart with love. His beautiful smile and infectious laugh warmed those around him. Terry gave us a solid example by which to live and to inspire us to be the best versions of ourselves. His profound presence will be remembered.
