Beloved husband of the late Elsie May Coote (nee Campbell).Loving father of Haydn, David (Marg) and Terri-Anne Crook (John). Cherished Gransha of Derek (Amanda), Jason Crook (Angela), Devon (Josh) and predeceased by Bryan Crook. Terry is survived by 2 great-grandchildren Benjamin and Kaydence. Terry was born in Pontymister, Gwent Wales. Terry was a veteran of the British Army Gloucesters Regiment serving in World War II from 1942 -1946. Terry had a great love for the game of Rugby and played in the Premier Leagues for Newport and Bridgend, upon suffering an injury that took him out of the game Terry and Elsie made a decision to immigrate to Canada in 1954. In Canada they settled in Hamilton for a while and started to raise their family before moving to Burlington where they spent most of their married life with family and many great friends. Terry was a Technical Service Manager For Kaiser Refractories for 35 years, this job took him all over the world, he was very proud of the work he did in that time. The other love of Terry’s life was the game of golf, he was a great player and was so proud of shooting 6 holes in one in his lifetime. Terry and Elsie were both longtime members of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 60 where they both served on the boards. The Legion had dances every Saturday night, that’s where Terry and Elsie would float across the dance floor as only ballroom dancers can. Dad became a member of Pineland Baptist Church in Burlington where he would enjoy singing all the old hymns. Dad took some time and wrote his life story for his family to remember him by and he summed it up by using some famous lyrics “I Faced it all and I stood Tall, and I did it MY WAY” A Memorial Service will take place at Pineland Baptist Church 5100 New Street, Burlington, Ontario on Saturday May 28th at 11:00am. The family would appreciate any donations made to McNally House in Grimsby. Online condolences may be made at <br> <br> <br> <br>“Forever in our Hearts” <br> <br></div>
