Passed away peacefully with his loving family by his side at LHSC – Victoria Hospital on August 9, 2021 at the age of 61. Cherished father of Heather Blok and Adrian McTaggart of Exeter, ON and Erin and Blair Aitchison of Melrose, Scotland. Adored younger brother and brother-in-law of Maria Piercy (Mark), Mary Fisher (Marty), Nellie Boshart (Bill), Agatha Feltz (Dave), and Dinah DeGroot (Jack). Terry will be missed and remembered by his many nieces and nephews, special friends and family members from the Netherlands. Predeceased by his parents Nellie and Tony Blok, his sister Trudy, and Heather and Erin’s mother Charlotte Mossman Blok.
Terry was a graduate of Lambton College and was a long time employee with the City of London, working primarily as a greenskeeper at the Thames Valley Golf Course. In his free time, Terry was a sports enthusiast, had a keen interest in machinery and high performance motorsports, and enjoyed his lawn care and skilled carpentry projects at home. Most importantly in his life though, was the love he had for his family and the life-long friendships he made with his childhood pals as well as most-dedicated friendships he forged in Exeter and elsewhere. He will be fondly remembered for his sense of humour and wit.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to Terry’s family physician Dr. J. Jadd and the CCTC team at Victoria Hospital.
