RYAN, Terrance Thomas Ryan - May 17, 1937 – March 28, 2022
It is with great sorrow that we share the passing of Terry Thomas Ryan on March 28th, 2022.
Terry leaves behind his wife Colleen of 61 years and his three sons Steve (Darnelle) of Newcastle, Mike (Lynn) of Courtice, and Al (Tammy) of Woodstock, who were his pride and joy.
He will be missed by his grandchildren, Luke, Emily, Daniel, Spencer, Katie, Kylie, and Ben and by his great-grandson Brooks, and by his many nieces and nephews.
Terry was predeceased by his parents, his brother Paul, and his sisters, Ellen Krysinski, Jean Brown, and Claire MacDougall.
Terry was born in Kirkland Lake on May 17th, 1937 to Tom and Bertha (Ramsey) Ryan.
He grew up in the Ottawa Valley, where he met and married the love of his life, Colleen Morris, in 1960.
After moving to the Oshawa area in the late 60s, he spent 37 years working as an electrician for G.M.
Terry loved his cars, his ATVs and spent many hours up at his beloved tree-farm on his tractor.
Terry loved people and enjoyed good conversation. He had a knack for recalling names, dates, and events and he had a genuine interest in knowing how you were doing.
Terry was an avid Leafs fan and passed on his love for hockey to his sons, and to his grandchildren and spent hundreds of hours cheering them on in cold arenas.
He also had a strong sense of community and was active in his parish and in the Knights of Columbus.
