Obituary of Terence Edward Hounsham
Peacefully, at the Niagara Health System’s Welland Site, on Tuesday, July 21, 2020, at the age 77. Dearly loved husband of Doreen Hounsham. Loving father of Wendy (Stephane) Hounsham of St. Catharines, Craig (Christa) Hounsham of Niagara Falls, and Neil (Kalina) Hounsham of Welland. The best Grandad ever to Julien, Arielle, Darwyn and Hudson. Terry will be missed by his surviving brother Stephen of Farnham, England and his nieces and nephews in the UK.
Terry grew up in the UK, joining the Royal Army Medical Core to train as a medical officer at the age of 20 and eventually immigrated to Canada where he was a paramedic and then a respiratory technologist. He settled in Welland, Ontario for his last two decades. He was known for being witty and playful. He was always ready with a joke.
The family would like to thank Dr. Michael Levesque and all the staff at Niagara Health System and Walker Family Cancer Centre for their dedication and support.
Arrangements are entrusted with Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133).
