Davidson, John Terrence 'Terry'

Terry Davidson passed away on Thursday, May 9, 2024 in his 81st year.

He is survived by his wife Shirley Davidson (nee Cowper).

Terry will be missed by his son Kevin and partner Carla, and his daughter Teryl.  He was the proud grandfather of Calli, Caitlin, and Cassandra, and great grandfather of Ziya.

He will be remembered fondly by his sister Myrna Fulford and her husband Merv, and his sister-in-law Jean Davidson.

    To all of Terry’s Family: As neighbors here in Maple Meadow Homes we got to know the Family well. We will always remember seeing Terry coming down the road walking with Lucy and he would always take the time for a friendly greeting, offering a smile, even though at times he wasn’t feeling like it. He has endured a tough time over the last few years and gave it his best shot. May he now rest in peace. Cherish the many fond memories you will have of a life well lived.
    Bev. and Marion.

    To All of Terry’s Family, Friends and Neighbours, I’m so sorry that Terry had to suffer with his health for so many years.
    When I think of Terry, I always think of him the first time that I saw him. When I was in the 7th or 8th grade at Meaford Elementary School, boys who went to country schools came to our school once a week for shop. Their bus would stop in front of the school and the guys had no choice but to parade in front of my friends, other boy crazy classmates and I as we lined both sides of the sidewalk to the school. The only guy I remember was Terry Davidson with his fabulous smile and his curly, blonde hair. Little did I know that years later, Terry would become my brother-in-law!
    Rest In Peace Terry ❤️
