Obituary: Fiddis, Terence Robert ‘Terry’

Obituary

It is with great sadness and a deep sense of loss that we announce the passing of Terry Fiddis on Friday, October 9, 2020, at Chapman House Residential Hospice in Owen Sound with his wife Isabell at his side. He battled his two-year cancer illness with remarkable dignity, courage, and attitude.

Terry is survived by his wife of 21 years, Isabell (nee Julian) Fiddis, his step-children April (Brandon), Aimee (Andrew), and Andrew (Robin), and his step-grandchildren Elizabeth and Dominic. He will be remembered fondly by his brother Rick Fiddis (Camille).

Born in Meaford on October 5, 1954, Terry was a son of the late Orville and Gwen (nee Kearns) Fiddis. Terry spent his childhood in Thornbury where he made numerous lifelong friends. He moved to Meaford in his 20s, where he made many more friends and lived until his passing. He married Isabell in 1999. Terry worked at LOF Glass for many years and later at Blue Mountain Resort until he retired in 2014.

He was deeply loved and supported by family and friends. His family meant everything to him. Terry was funny, kind, easy-going, and loving. His family and friends miss him dearly but the world is a more loving place because of him.

A private graveside service will be conducted at Thornbury-Clarksburg Union Cemetery, where he will be interred with his parents.

Terry’s family thank his family doctor, Dr. Allen, and the staff at Chapman House Residential Hospice of Grey Bruce for their excellent care and compassion, and his many friends supported Terry and his family throughout his illness. In lieu of flowers and as your expression of sympathy, donations to Chapman House Residential Hospice of Grey Bruce would be appreciated and may be made through the Ferguson Funeral Home, 48 Boucher St. E., Meaford, ON, N4L 1B9, to whom arrangements have been entrusted. www.fergusonfuneralhomes.ca
