Obituary of Terence Johnston

While he celebrated a life well lived; we grieve the passing of Terence, which occurred on April 26, 2020 at his home with his family by his side. He was born on April 26, 1928 to the late Fulton Johnston and Rachael Johnston-Blades. Terry worked for many years at the Port of Saint John. He was a devoted husband and father, and in his spare time you would catch him at the local rink coaching the boy’s hockey team. Following his retirement he enjoyed spending time in his workshop, turning out many household items for his close friends and family. He would spend many hours volunteering with the ambulance service on the Peninsula and with the Chaplain Ministries. Terence is survived by his loving wife Phyllis; daughters: Deborah, Sheena (Richard) Daigle; sons: Fred (Wendy), Greg (Paulette), and Keith (Michelle); sister Lillian Orr; son-in-law Bryan Kilmartin; close family friend Judith McCrea; as well as several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brothers Willard and Robert; sister Ann; daughter Wanda; and son-in-law Dale Winget. The family would like to extend a special thanks to the dedicated care of Terence’s Extra-Mural nurses. Arrangements have been entrusted to Reid’s Funeral Home (506-832-5541), 1063 Main Street, Hampton, NB and due to COVID-19 restrictions a service will be held at a later date. Donations in memory of Terence may be made to the Community Chaplain Service or to a charity of the donor’s choice.
