Edward Terence "Terry" Rigby

Age 87, of Windsor, passed away on Tuesday, February 12, 2019.

 

Terry was born in Preston, England on November 5, 1931. He completed his education in England and trained as a Machinist before emigrating to Canada in 1956. Upon entry to Canada he joined the RCAF. After retiring from the Air Force, he worked as a machinist at Minas Basin Pulp and Paper in Hantsport, NS. He also had a full machine shop in his household basement where he made his own working steam powered miniature train. Terry was also an avid sports fan, particularly Premier League soccer – he knew player stats, team stats and manager strategies for every team and was known to put a wager or two on whichever team he deemed worthy at the time.

 

Although a proud Canadian, Terry never lost his desire to go back home and each year he would return to his home town of Preston for a visit.

 

Terry is survived by his daughter, Janice (Darin); grandsons, Brandon and Devon.

 

He was preceded in death by his wife of 56 years, Hazel; father, Joe; mother, Edith; stepfather, Bob and sister, Diane.
