Once A Friend – Always A Friend
Terry Ranson John Rogers, formerly of Forest and Kettle Point passed away peacefully, on Sunday, November 17, 2019, at Bluewater Health in Sarnia at the age of 55. Best friend and companion of Tammie Stoner, Terry, and Tammie shared over 10 years together.
Terry loved and was loved by his step-kids, Blair (Leanna), Gordie, Megan, Stacey (Shane), Billi (Shane), Janet, and his step-grand kids Kevin, Bauer, and Samantha. Terry will be missed by his siblings Stephen (Connie), Jim (Sandra), Mike (Kitty), Jeff, and Brad (Anita) as well as his in-laws Frances and Robert Stoner, Rhonda (Dean) and Rob (Sheri). Terry was a dear friend of Debbie Romphf and will be fondly missed by his many nieces and nephews. Terry is predeceased by his brother Scott and parents Jack & Shirley (Rogers) Milliken.
Terry was kind to everyone, giving the shirt off of his back if given the opportunity. Always a smile and always ready with a joke to crack. A gifted handyman, Terry could take on the task of fixing a roof or taking a beautiful photo of a thunderstorm or sunset. He was intrigued by the sights in nature and believed in doing everything at least once. A fisherman, who enjoyed the comradery of friends while sitting on his cooler, Terry loved to hear and tell stories, reminiscing about the details of family times and togetherness.
Family and friends are invited to the Forest Legion to Celebrate Terry’s Life on Friday, November 29, 2019, from 1 pm-4 pm, beginning with a formal program at 1 pm, Rev. Dr. Christine O’Reilly officiating. Donations are appreciated in Terry's name to Harm Reduction NLCHC or Teen Challenge.
Arrangements are entrusted to Gilpin Funeral Chapel, 123 King Street East in Forest, 519-786-4964. Please leave a memory or condolence online at www.GilpinFuneralChapel.com
