Kasper, Terry Joseph

Terry Kasper passed away peacefully after a short battle with cancer at Meaford Hospital on Saturday, August 22, 2020, at the age of 63.

Born in Ellwood City, PA on April 29, 1957, Terry was the son of the late Paul and Dolores Kasper. He moved to Canada with his parents in 1970 and spent the next 45 years in the Cobourg area, and had moved to Meaford in 2015.

Terry will be missed dearly by his wife and best friend Mary Anne (nee Seaborn), daughter Anne, son Paul (Kelly) and his granddaughters Lindsay and Jillian. He is also survived by his sisters Joan Steffler (Bill) and Donna Kellerman (Ed), both who still reside in Pennsylvania, as well as many nieces and nephews in both Canada and the United States.  Terry was predeceased by his sister Iris Sturgess (Buzz) of Pennsylvania.

Terry had a long and fulfilling career as an electrician, spending the last 20 years with Aecon Group. He had the opportunity to travel extensively within Canada for his job, as well as internationally.

He was happiest spending time on the water boating and fishing, or in his workshop at home. Terry maintained many lifelong friendships, through school, work, family, and local connections.

Cremation has taken place and Terry’s life will be celebrated at a later date.

As your expression of sympathy, donations to the Meaford Hospital Foundation would be appreciated and may be made through the Ferguson Funeral Home, 48 Boucher St. E., Meaford, ON N4L 1B9 to whom arrangements have been entrusted. www.fergusonfuneralhomes.ca

    It was always a good day when I had a chance to see and chat with Terry at Kelly’s in Cobourg. He always had a friendly smile and an interesting story. He was a fine gentleman and well liked by all.

    Dear Mary Anne and family,

    We send our deepest condolences to you and your family. Each one of us have depended on Terry for so many years and he really was the best in his field. Not only could we count on him to fix the job and do it right but the best part was always the laughs, good times and great stories we shared together. We remember Terry fondly as he was not just a fellow employee but a great friend to us all. Keeping you in our thoughts.

    Dear Mary Anne, Paul, Anne and family

    I am so sorry for your loss and my deepest condolences. I have known Terry for many years and we have shared so many laughs together (and a couple fights) that is what made him such a great friend. We worked together on so many jobs over so many years and even though both of us were not keen on being away in Bermuda, looking back I am so grateful to have got to spend that time with him. Over our countless conversations, he spoke so highly of you and was so proud of his family. As an electrician, there was nothing Terry couldn’t fix, not only at work, but would take my call on a Sunday morning to help me through the electrical problem I’d got myself into. I valued Kasper’s opinion so many things (except Scotch) and I will truly miss him.
