Paul Edward Terrill ~ Passed away peacefully at home with family by his side on May 12, 2020 just shy of his 80th birthday. Paul was the cherished partner of 60 years of his beautiful wife (his “Dreamboat”) Judy (Lyons), his true partner in life. Loving father of Lianne Franklin (Gene), Dan and friend Helen Finnegan, Geoff (Kim), and Amy Butler (Kent). Dear grandfather, “Dandy”, of Erin Evans (Mat), Andrew Franklin (Meredith Bee), Kole Terrill, Jenna, Sydney and Jade Terrill and Elise and Laura Butler as well as great-grandfather of Connor and Paige Evans. Wonderful brother to Jim (Shirley), Catherine (John Leggatt) and Elizabeth MacDuffee (Gord) (predeceased) and brother in-law to Geri Strassburger (predeceased) (Paul) and Kathy Henry (Ray). Predeceased by his parents Grant and Bertha Terrill and parents in-law, Merrill and Edith Lyons, as well as Grandma Kay Lyons. Paul was deeply loved by many nieces, nephews, a large extended family and friends. Children were particularly fond of Paul. He and Judy had a wonderful marriage full of love, joy, travel and companionship that began when they were just teenagers. One of their favourite memories was the 17,000 mile RV trip. Together they supported their family’s activities and pursuits, no matter where it took them. Paul lived his entire life to the fullest. He was very active, enjoying cottaging and cool cars, curling, golf, cycling, skiing, hiking, camping, hunting, fishing the John’s Creek, sailing, boating and water skiing. He sure could carve up a wake! Professionally he started as a teacher in a one-room schoolhouse in Bexley Township, worked in the publishing field, farmed, established a national car wash distributorship and was a real estate agent and broker since 1974. Paul was one of three founding members of the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation and served as President of many organizations including Kawartha Real Estate Board, Lindsay Curling Club and Friends Cemetery. Even during a battle with glioblastoma he continued to work and stay active. He even took up paddle-boarding and the moniker “Rocketman 100” which he had full-colour tattooed on his arm to demonstrate his will to beat cancer. He believed you could do anything you set your mind to and instilled that in his family. Paul will be greatly missed by all who knew him and especially by his loyal dog Two Socks. A special thank you to Dr. Graham Loeb, the palliative team care, Dr. Mason and Maureen Daniels at the Pencer Brain Tumour Centre at Princess Margaret Hospital and Dr. Spears at St. Michael’s Hospital. A private funeral will be held for the family with internment at the Linden Valley Friends Cemetery. Due to Covid-19, a Celebration of Life will take place at a later date. If desired, a donation can be made to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes and Friends Cemetery.

This is very sad news. We offer our sympathy to Paul's family and friends. We had the pleasure of curling with Paul. One of the most clever curlers on the ice, Paul always made sure the game was fun and convivial. He loved to win but always demonstrated what good sportsmanship is all about. What an appetite he had for life. What a brave man right to the end. Paul will be greatly missed by everyone whose life he touched.
