Terrence “Terry” Eric Anderson passed away peacefully at the West Parry Sound Health Centre on Monday, October 2nd, 2023. Age 78 years.
Son of the late Frank & Eunice (nee Jackson) Anderson. Beloved friend and partner of Betty Morden for 37 years. Cherished brother of Nancy Ruth Krindle (the late Monty), Kathryn Anderson (Peter Noyes), and the late Louise Reid (husband Allan). Terry will be forever missed by his nieces: Wendy (Rob), Ann, and Tracey, and by his nephews: Eric, David (Toni), Jon (Angela), and the late Bryan. Fondly remembered by his great nieces and nephews, other family, friends and neighbours.
Terry was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing, gardening and spending time with his dogs on long walks to the lake for swimming and exercise. He loved his hometown of Parry Sound and spent as much time on the Georgian Bay as he could. Terry worked at St. Joseph’s Hospital for 25 years, many as the Laboratory Manager and retired from the West Parry Sound Health Centre as Laboratory Manager in 2000.
As was Terry’s wish, cremation has taken place. A private service will be held at a later date.
As expressions of sympathy, donations to MTM Conservation Association, or the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.
On behalf of my family and the staff of the Laboratory at the West Parry Sound Health Centre, I wish to express our condolences to Ms. Betty Morden and the entire family of Terry Anderson. As the Laboratory Manager at St Joseph's Hospital, Terry was an exemplary leader who mentored successive generations of younger laboratory technologists until his retirement in 2000. Terry's life was a well lived one. He was equally at peace with mother nature on the trails with his dogs or on the boat on Georgian Bay and elsewhere. He will be sorely missed.
May Terry's soul rest in peace with our Almighty God until eternity.
Sorry to hear about Terry. I worked with him at St. Joseph's hospital. Sending hugs to the family.-laura mckowen

Parry Sound and Georgian Bay were “Number One” for Terry. Boating, fishing and snowmobiling brought our families together, over the years. Terry was like a little brother to me. Gone … but never forgotten … for sure!-David Timms
Sending condolences from Laurie and Lynda Timms. Many fond memories of “Uncle” Terry. The Timms boys considered him family. Lasting memories of summer boat trips out to the open ‘Bay for shore lunches, swimming and spring Pike fishing in Spider Bay. “Uncle” Terry has instilled in me a love of the outdoors and Georgian Bay that remains today. His legacy lives on in me and my family. He was a generous and gracious man who will be missed. Prayers and peace for family at this time of loss.-Laurie Timms
I will miss my golfing partner of many years whether playing in a tournament together or on Men's night. Having coffee at Orr's was a time to tell stories, most of them true, about golfing, fishing, and hunting. My condolences to Betty and the family for your loss. I will miss you Buddy.-Don Bosley
A true man of nature who will be missed by many. The forests and waterways will feel the loss as well. I enjoyed his company and wisdom as a young man whenever we fished together. He had a calm steady and trusting disposition that is so rare in this world, this is what I will miss most.-Blair Hamilton
My deepest condolences to Betty and family.
