It is with great sadness the family of Terry Netterfield announces his passing on Thursday December 31, 2020, at the age of 61.

Terry was born October 4, 1959 and raised in Wingham, Ontario. As a young man, he lived his life to the MAX…; he loved loud music, fast cars, and “a cold beer!” In the late 1970s he and 3 of his friends hopped in his car and headed West to Alberta in search of work and a brighter future. This is where he made his home and raised his daughters.

Terry maintained his love for cars throughout his life and could often be found at the car wash making sure his car was spotless. He was a deep thinker and a ferocious reader.  He would devour 4 or 5 (sometimes more) novels in a week.  In recent years he developed an intense passion for fishing and was always “on the hunt for Moby Dick!” This was a joy he shared with his partner Jolanda and step-daughter, Andrea. Terry had a small group of friends who were like family to him. Some of his fondest memories were of camping, fishing, and vacationing with them.

Terry worked hard, starting in his youth, and was a dedicated employee and co-worker. His strong will and independence ensured he could do anything he put his mind to. While he often didn’t say very much, he made sure his family knew how much he loved them.

He will always be remembered as:

Devoted spouse of Jolanda Leach.  Loving father of Melissa & Jason Hawirko, Shannon Netterfield and Andrea & Jamie Peyachew.  Proud Grandpa of Sawyer Hawirko and Ayla & Landon Peyachew all of Edmonton Alberta.

Cherished brother of Kevin & Polly Netterfield of Baden ON, Rob Netterfield & Marion Beattie of Bluevale ON and Carolynne & Jeff deBoer of Wroxeter ON.  Fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews.

Terry was predeceased by his parents Jim & Grace Netterfield, his brother Randy Netterfield, his nephew TeeJay Netterfield and his great nephew Keenan Netterfield.

At Terry’s request cremation has taken place and there will be no funeral or memorial service.

As expressions of sympathy, donations can be made to Alberta Conservation Association https://www.ab-conservation.com/donate/make-a-donation/ to help support the future of fishing in Alberta.

  1. To Terry’s family my heart felt condolences. Terry always remembered my name as a customer. Our chats would be short across the counter but none the less they were great. When he told me he took up fishing l tried to pass on as many good spots l knew of.

  2. Oh Terry you’ll be missed . I was always hoping you’d come back to work the sales desk again. I have no words,

  3. I’ll always have memories of Terry

  4. So sorry to hear of Terry’s passing. He was loved by many and will be missed by all who knew him. May he rest in peace.

  5. Our condolences to all of Terry’s family. May you find comfort in your precious memories of the “loud music, fast cars and cold beer” along with all the other milestones along the way. Our thoughts are with you all.

  6. Jolanda, Melissa, Shannon Andrea and families.
    Our hearts are broken, as we know yours are.
    Terry’s optimism and strength though all the pain and discomfort he endured, was perhaps an example of hope he left for all of us to move forward with. He was never one to want a fuss made, unless it was over his girls. And never one to complain, unless the ice wasn’t thick enough to fish. Loved him and looked up to him always. Grateful for all the memories he created through happenstance or shenanigans; all which may help replace some tears with smiles sooner than later.
    Lots of love and hugs. Uncle Kevin and Aunt Polly & Spencer

  7. My condolences to the family, I am so sorry for your loss. I was deeply saddened by the news of Terry passing. I met him while working at EWEL, and albeit only knowing him for a short period of time, he made a huge impact on me. He will be greatly missed.

  8. Terry, you will be missed by everyone. I loved working with you and so did everyone else. My heart is with your family. Be at peace, brother.
