Obituary

On July 24, 2020 Raymond Dennis Terry of Kenville, MB formerly of Minitonas, MB passed away at the age of 60 with Cindy by his side.

Survived by his loving wife, Cindy, and his daughter, Taneal (Dustin) Hay of Kenville, MB. 5 grandchildren, Madison, Kaylee, Dallas, Taylor and Preston. Many nieces and nephews.

Mother-in-law Bev Fullerton and 5 siblings, Lorn, Gordon (Marg), Melvin, Allan (Maxine), and Madelaine (Vern).

Raymond was predeceased by his parents Robert and Alice Terry. Son Jaret Terry and Father-in-law Earl Fullerton.

Raymond was born April 20, 1960 in Swan River, MB.  He went to country school, Minitonas school and then Swan River. Raymond made the decision to work with his dad then went to work for Midwest Diamond Drilling with his brother Allan.

Raymond met Cindy in the summer of 1978 in front of the coop store on Main Street. On May 15, 1982 they were married in Swan River, MB. On October 31, 1985 Taneal Lee was born. Their family came complete when Jaret Ray was born June 19, 1990.

The opportunity came to work with Earl with the PMU operation and Feedlot Cleaning. At the same time he also worked night shift at Spruce Products in the winter. Once the PMU was discontinued Fullerton Terry Farms went into the cattle industry. The choice was made to discontinue the cattle industry once BSE had occurred.  After Raymonds dads passing, Raymond continued the horse pulling competition that his dad had the most passion for.  Raymond and Cindy travelled to various competitions with Helmet Redlick (life time long friend of the family).  The highlight was the year they went to the competition in Regina SK.  Raymond then went to work for the RM of Swan River as a grader operator. During that time he was fortunate to enough for the opportunity to start a grader position with the Minitonas-Bowsman Municipality until his passing.

Raymond along with Cindy decided to go into the sheep business. Purchasing 400 head of ewes. That’s when life got real interesting, both working out and lambing! A few years of that and the decision was to work like other people with one job each with evenings and weekends off Good-Bye Sheep!

Raymond enjoyed playing hockey. Many friends and memories were made over the years with the Kenville Flyers. Especially the tournaments out of town. He was very proud when both Taneal and Jaret played hockey also.  Many weekends of excitement and memories were made through those years too.

Fishing and Ice Fishing were a favorite Raymond had especially with this long -life best friends Terry and Darrell.  These three boys were the best of friends for over 55+ years! Not many can actually say that.  They were always there for each other. They were called the 3 Amegos and their wives. Always there to support each other through good and bad times. Skidooing and quadding were another two sports the Raymond enjoyed for the fullest. Seasonal camping at Wellman Lake for the summer was his favorite with friends and family.

Raymond will always be remembered and missed in all of our hearts.
