Terrance Melvin “Terry” Quaife

Terrance Melvin "Terry" Quaife

A much loved husband, father, poppa and brother Terry Quaife, 62, of Cranbrook, B.C. passed away peacefully in the comfort of his home on September 15, 2014. He had bravely confronted and fought cancer for over 2 1/2 years.

Terry was born May 23, 1952 to Melvin and Doreen (Corrigal) Quaife. He married the love of his life and high school sweetheart Betty (Belous) Quaife on March 5, 1977. He provided for his family by owning and operating logging trucks for over 30 years and was known and respected by all in the industry. He was an avid outdoorsman who truly did live life to its fullest. His true loves were camping with all his family and friends, horse back riding, hunting, fishing and just going for a “tour” in his razor.

He is survived by his wife Betty, daughter Jodie (Brent) Halliday, son Jason (Amy) Quaife, grandchildren Madison, Mackenzie, Chloe, Bryder and Cooper, brother Baron (Barb) Quaife, sisters Velma (Earl) Sietz and Meldoreen (Tom) Domin, nieces, nephews and extended family.

Terry was a devoted husband, a dedicated father and was truly an inspiration to those who knew him. He will be missed every second of every day.

A celebration of Terry’s life will be held on Monday September 22, 2014 at 2:00 pm at the Cranbrook Alliance Church. Those wishing to make a memorial donation in Terry’s memory may do so to the Canadian Cancer Society, 19 – 9th Avenue South, Cranbrook, British Columbia, V1C 2L9.
