Sadly after a lengthy illness, Terry passed away at the Pinawa Hospital at the age of 78. Terry will be survived by his son Jay, brother Ted (Judy), brother Jeffrey (Diane) nieces, April (James), Amber (Jeff), Jessica, and nephew Wayne, great nieces Mallory and Ariel. He was predeceased by his father Ted Sr. (1994), mother Patricia (2014) and sister Pamela (2021).
Terry retired to Lac du Bonnet where his passion for boating, fishing, and gardening brought him so much happiness. His lifelong love for his fur family brought him joy daily. He loved having company over camping and the visits around his camp fire so often, always being the life of the party. He was a music buff who loved his dancing.
The family wants to thank his dear friend Emily who gave Terry so much care & attention during his illness. You were his angel Emily.
The family also thanks Dr. Bruneau and nursing staff @ Pinawa Hospital for their care. Terry will now be with his mother, father and sister Pam as he journeys into Heaven. God bless you Terry, peace be with you.
At Terry’s request no official service will be held. Cremation has taken place. He will be honored and remembered at a private family gathering.

During the tornado at Bird River on Aug 5, 2006, my wife, myself and our puppies were in our mobile home along the shore when the tornado picked up our trailer and tossed it like a kids toy, onto it’s roof. Terry was one of the first people who came to help. His trailer ( which he actually bought from me ) was up the hill aways. He saw what happened and even while the rain was still intense, came running not knowing what condition we were in. He and others help free us from the debris, and helped us up to his trailer where his and his friend’s kindness and generosity were so much appreciated. All this even though his brand new pontoon boat was floating upside down in the water. We will never forget what he did for us that day and we often tell the story and Terry will always be an important part of it.
We met Terry while living in Winnipeg, and our friendship grew from fishing trips and camping.Every adventure had a good laugh.We will miss your hearty laugh and funny personality.
A;though I had never met Terry he sounds as though I missed an opportunity to meet another friend,. I do however know the Baran family and my though, prayers and condolences are with each of them. May happy memories of the past provide you with some comfort at thyme.
