Terrance Barker Towns (Terry), died tragically April 9th at the age of 66. He was a kind, generous, loving son, brother, uncle and friend. Terry was known for his wild and crazy stories, his ’57 Chev, the zodiac he built for the coast guard and his fun loving boating days. He had a zest for life, especially for going fast and all things mechanical. He loved music, movies, engines, cars, trucks, certain antiques and most of all loved his family and friends.  We will never forget you Terry and will hold you close to our hearts. Rest In Peace big brother.

    Terry B you were the best neighbor, adviser and a true friend for 10 years. I can’t believe you are gone. My heart breaks for your family. Thomas Terry Towns, my friend, I’m so sorry for the loss of your son.

  • Jerry Barrett

    Terry was one of the nicest people I knew. I lived with Terry, worked with him and we had fun together in so many ways. Camping, frisbee on the beach, 4-wheeling, boat rides to the States during beer strikes & outrunning Coast Guard, plane flights to Vancouver-one time losing power! He was alot of fun and adventure.
    I learned so much from Terry about building boats and driving boats, he could drive anything with a steering wheel. I remember him drawing pictures of rigid hull inflatables when Tony & I lived with him on Vancouver St. There wasn’t much he couldn’t figure out.
    I have a lot of great memories with Terry and feel fortunate to have known him.
    Till we meet again old friend.

    I met Terry a number of years ago via the “certain antique” collecting community he belonged to. He was always a wealth of knowledge & a gentleman in every way. He was well respected by our peers. I miss bumping into Terry at the local Coop & exchanging a few minutes of pleasant conversation. Gone too soon, Terry will be missed. Rest in peace.

    I first met Terry in 1976 , through friends, Ray and Jerry (that had moved to Victoria earlier). Instantly I was welcomed into the the group and we all became good friends and hung out a lot at our house in James Bay. After a couple of years Terry purchased a house on Vancouver Street and Jerry and I moved in with Terry; needless to say the party and the friendships continued. We had revolving roommates including Leo, and also a few couch surfers . We enjoyed many good times at that house and also the road trips, the camping, the boating and the music. Man, we had a ton of good times! Sadly as we get older we can drift apart , but my memories of Terry and his sense of humour, friendliness, kindness and the times we shared will not be forgotten! Boat on brother. Tony Turk

  • Johanna Towns

    I still can’t believe you’re gone..you’ve always been there, big brother. Since I was little.
    I will miss you forever. There’s a gap now, where you lived, a vacant space. It hurts. I’m left as the oldest, it doesn’t feel right. It’s not my place. Rest In Peace, Ter. Forever your little sister, Joey.

  • Sue Ferguson

    I will always remember Terry for telling the best stories in such an enthusiastic way. He was always welcoming, and genuinely interested in other people. He had a fantastic sense of humour and I really enjoyed the bbq’s and get togethers. He will be missed. My condolences to the Towns family.

  • Jena Herrle

    Love you big brother! Wherever you are I hope you’re driving your 57 Chev and jumping the waves in your rigid hull zodiac! Miss you so very much. You will always be in my heart.
    Your little sister, Birdie

Until we meet again.
