LAMB, Terence (Terry) Malcolm
April 9, 1947 – Feb. 13, 2010
After a courageous and stoic battle against cancer, Terry passed away peacefully on February 13th, 2010 in White Rock, BC. with his family by his side. He is survived by his mother Isabel, sister Noreen, brother Russ, sister-in-law Heather Stewart, nieces Shawna, Carla and Kadence and nephews Shane, Charles and Dario and his many cousins from both the Lamb and Prowse families. Terry grew up on a farm in western Manitoba. Joining the Royal Canadian Air Cadets in 1959 introduced him to aviation and led him to being awarded a flying scholarship in 1964. After High School, he commenced working for Maple Leaf Aviation in Brandon, MB where he obtained his Commercial, Instructor and Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licenses.
Terry joined Pacific Western Airlines in the fall of 1973. Throughout his 33+ year airline career he was a part of several airline mergers while being based in Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and Vancouver. Terry had the pleasure of flying to all continents – from the Arctic Islands to Africa, from Europe to the Middle East and Asia. He retired as a Vancouver based Air Canada B767 Captain in April of 2007.
His love of outdoors was a major part of Terry’s life – spending time with his friends hiking the West Coast Trail, skiing at Whistler and the Okanagan, boating on Lake Osoyoos and riding his Harley to San Francisco was a happy time and place for him.
Before he left us, he asked that the following thought be kept in our minds:
“Don’t cry because I am gone, but smile for all the fun times we had together.”
His family is thankful for the loving care and attention he received from Dr. Perold, the White Rock Palliative Home Care Nurses, the Staff at Peach Arch Hospital and the B.C. Cancer Agency on West 10th Avenue in Vancouver.
If desired, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 565 – 10th Avenue West, Vancouver, BC V5Z 1L3 as an expression of sympathy and remembrance of Terence.
