Terrence “Terry” Francis Slattery born October 2, 1938 in Brantford, Ontario passed away on Thursday, July 21, 2021 in Stratford at age 82.
Son of the late Gordon James & Kathleen E. (Smith) Slattery. Predeceased by his beloved wife Carol Ann (Wilson) Slattery and his sons Timothy and Wayne Francis Joseph Slattery.
Terry will be lovingly remembered by his daughter Mary Lynn Jesso, his sisters Gail Slattery, Theresa (Dan) Brookes & Lyla (Camiel) Van Poele. Along with his brothers James (Jim) Kurt, William Slattery, & Michael Kurt and his many nieces and nephews and close friends.
Terry was a cheerful and witty man who worked for many years as a self-employed carpenter and machinist in the Clinton, Seaforth and Mitchell area. He met and married his soulmate, Carol, shortly after meeting in the late 70’s. Terry moved to Mannsville, AB in the early 90’s with his wife as the “high plains drifter” with whom he shared the love of nature and gardening, painting, photography and all animals – especially cats. Terry returned to the Stratford area in the late 20’s after Carols passing to be closer to family.
Terry’s wishes were to be cremated and laid to rest in the family plot next to his beloved wife at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery and Crematorium in London, Ontario.
