Terrence Richard Webb was born in Calgary, Alberta, 46 years ago, and left us to join his Lord after a courageous battle with cancer on Easter Sunday, April 4, 2010, at 10:20 p.m.
Terry was well-known in Grand Forks as a handyman and a delivery person for a local courier company and, as he always did, touched many lives with his quirky sense of humour, his hard-working attitude and his willingness to give to others. He was active in church activities, benevolent functions, Christmas Hamper Programs, and anywhere someone needed an extra pair of hands. Most of all, Terry was devoted to showing the love of Jesus to all he met!Terry’s life was centered around his family, extended family and dear close friends. He loved to ‘adopt” people into his family, feed them, enjoy with them games, singing, campfires… and to teach any who came near him to let the love of God shine through by loving acts of kindness. To this end, Terry trained at Briercrest Bible School at Caronport, Saskatchewan, in the mid 1990’s and has enjoyed being involved in ministries that gave to others or focused on teaching others first about the love of Christ and then about loving one another.Terry is survived by his wife, Rhonda; children: Hannah (James), Joshua (Lisa), Jessica and Micah; grandchild, Briar; parents, Tom and Lyn Webb of Salmo, B.C.; sister, Tiara (Rob) Kline of Nelson, B.C.; grandfather, Doug Anderson of Campbell River, B.C., and various adopted siblings and children around the world. He is lovingly remembered and missed by all who knew him!A memorial service celebrating Terry’s life was held on Saturday, April 10, 2010, at 2 p.m., at the River Valley Community Church. Service was hosted by Joe and Denise Martinsen, and the church, and was emceed by long-time friend (and adopted brother) Kelly Cook. We owe thanks to so many in this wonderful community: you have blessed us all so much – thank you!
