Terence Nicholas Choo (born Fort McMurray, Alberta).

It is with broken hearts that we are announcing the passing of our beloved Terence Nicholas Choo on January 17, 2023, at the age of 43 years old in Edmonton, Alberta. Terence leaves behind his mother, Elizabeth (step-father Timothy), father, Frank (step-mother Dana), and siblings Melissa, Titus (sister-in-law Leona), Anastasia, and many extended family members.

A lot of the relationships Terence developed were because of who he was. Everywhere he went, he brought light, warmth and laughter. Terence was such a kind soul who had a welcoming personality; it automatically made people gravitate toward him. He was fiercely resilient, determined and passionate about living independently and pursuing his dreams. Terence had hopes for the future, and he shared that hope by doing his best to live his life to the fullest. In 2015, Terence decided to go back to school and graduated from the Business Administration program through NorQuest College in 2019. He was nominated by the students and faculty for the NorQuest Shine Award for his efforts, attitude, commitment and being a positive role model in his post-secondary program. After that, Terence worked at the Premier’s Office as a Workforce Policy Branch Assistant Administrative Support, this job brought Terence so much fulfillment, and he was very proud to work there. In both school and work, the students, faculty, and co-workers made him feel so welcome and included, which gave him a feeling of belonging, and this meant so much to him.

One of Terence’s greatest joys in life was singing. If you knew him personally, if one of his favourite songs came on, you might have been graced with him serenading to you. He also loved learning new languages, cooking, and skiing. Terence was very creative. He loved to draw and express himself through fashion. Terence did not shy away from bold prints, bright colours and beautiful jewels, which reflected his personality.

Terence loved Jesus and always spread kindness wherever he went. He was understanding, caring and forgiving to whoever crossed his path. He was respectful, patient and sweet to everyone who was in his life. Additionally, Terence is remembered as an incredible brother and son. He loved his family unconditionally, and he was protective and compassionate. Terence brought so much joy to his family with his singing, willingness to help and thoughtfulness.

We will deeply miss you, Terence, and we love you so much. Your warm light and gentle spirit will remain with us forever.

  11. Elizabeth, Tim and family,
    I am so sorry to learn of the passing of Terrance. I know your emotions right now are raw, and it will take time to go on with knowing that Terrance has passed. In time, you will be able to remember some of the funny things that Terrance did, or some of the quirky things he would say or do. You will smile and sometimes you’ll chuckle. Remember when this happens, it’s Terrance telling you he’s with you all and that he’s ok.
    Take care.

  27. I am grateful for the time my office worked with Terence when he was at the Premier’s Office. He was effective, and friendly, business like and personable. After he moved on from there, I remember an extraordinarily friendly encounter at Oliver Square shops, and his instant renewal of our acquaintance. He was a gentleman in all the best meanings of that word. May I wish peaceful and happy memories to his family, and assure them that Terence was held in great esteem.

  28. Elizabeth, Tim and Family. I was deeply saddened to hear of Terence’s passing. I fondly remember numerous discussions Terence and I had at Lake Louise. We talked about life and sometime talked about nothing, often sharing a laugh and a chuckle. He was a kind, thoughtful and caring person who will be missed.

  29. An angel has flown to heaven, may you rest in peace and you’ll be forever in our hearts
