Obituary of Terry Barkhouse

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Terry Wade Barkhouse, of Ardoise, Hants Co., on Saturday, April 7, 2018 in Hants Community Hospital, Windsor, at the young age of 53.  Terry was born July 5, 1964 in Windsor, to Ronald and Joan (Peach) Barkhouse.

 

Terry was a loving husband, father, son, brother and uncle. He enjoyed getting away to his camp in Cape Breton, where he had hunted for more than 25 years. He loved hunting deer around the area and could sit and talk for hours about past hunts or listen to someone else's own hunting stories. He never got tired of talking or listening about hunting. Terry also loved trolling the lakes for trout in the highlands with his son, Ryan. He loved working with his brother at their machine shop, Ryjobar Machining, in Windsor.

 

Terry is survived by his wife, Annette (Leary), son, Ryan; parents, Ronald and Joan Barkhouse; brothers, Murray (Atasha), Michael (Lisa), Danny (Sharon); sister, Jennifer (Clyde) DeWolf. He also has seven nieces and nephews and eight great-nieces and great nephews. 

 

The family would like to thank Dr. Tim Matheson and all the nurses on Unit 200 of Hants Community Hospital. You were all wonderful and supportive to us at this difficult time.
