1959 ~ 2021
It is with great sadness, we announce the passing of Terry Halldorson. Following a brave battle with cancer, Terry passed on Friday, June 11th, 2021 in Pinawa, MB surrounded by his loving family.
He will be deeply missed by his wife Janet of 33 1/2 years, sons – Todd (Alysa) and Jamie, brother Leonard (Catherine & family), sister Lue (Pete & family), the Leganchuks, and many extended family and friends.
Terry celebrated his 62nd birthday on June 7th. He has gone to meet his Creator and parents, Helen and Halldor, and many relatives and friends. I’m sure they are reminiscing about the good times they had.
Terry’s early years were full of fun. He cherished time with long-time friends Bill, Gary and Alex including a weekend together last year. Terry created many memories at the St. Vital Hotel and the Marigold Restaurant. He loved to play hockey with the Glenwood Old Stars and baseball with several teams including the Dirty Muggers and Club St. B. Terry met Janet at a baseball tournament in 1982. He always loved to talk about the “Good Old Days”
Terry worked for the City of Winnipeg for 38 years, and held numerous roles: Arena attendant, maintenance of the sidewalks, roads, parks and mechanic. One of his last jobs was in the Training Branch, which he enjoyed, because he loved meeting people including his good friend “Porky” and then Gary. Later, Terry worked part time at the Notre Dame Arena, cleaning the ice for over 8 years and had lots of good times with his co-workers there.
He loved spending time with family and his most precious gifts – Todd and Jamie. He enjoyed taking the boys to their sports and camping, including 15 years at Falcon Lake, creating many great memories with friends. One favorite memory, which friends may recall, is when Terry helped the boys make a mini-golf course on our site.
The boys will carry on Terry’s passion for golf (Todd) and fishing and ice fishing (Jamie). Terry played countless rounds of golf with Brent and the Brewers, and spent hours fishing with Walter and ice fishing with the Treger men. (the big house).
After retirement, Terry wanted to be close to golf and fishing. We had a seasonal camp site at Relax Ridge (thanks Brent for everything) and then purchased a house in Pinawa. Terry became the course marshal at the Pinawa Golf & Country Club, where Terry could continue to meet and greet people. Thanks to Vicki and Adam (he so loved the morning coffees and the occasional visit from Flipper).
Our family is also thankful to Rey who took Terry on his last day of fishing.
Terry said he had “No regrets, I did what I wanted and when I wanted, except one thing… perhaps I should have listened to my wife and quit smoking.”
Terry says: “FAREWELL TO ALL, and I HAD A GOOD RUN AT LIFE”
The family thanks the staff at Pinawa Hospital for making his last months as comfortable as possible.
I would like to thank all the people that were in contact with us during the time of my husband’s illness. People may not realize how a little act of kindness such as a phone call can help someone going through a difficult time.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Winnipeg Human Society.
A celebration of life will occur in the future; should you want to be included please provide your information to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Offer Condolence for the family of Terry HalldorsonPrint This Obituary & Condolences
I have a few good memories of Terry we used to get him to buy beer for us when we were teenagers as he always had a beard and moustache and looked ten years older than us, sometimes we got the beer sometimes he keep it. lol Another memory I have of Terry is playing sponge hockey, I was warming up the Team one night in net and Terry let a slap shot go and that’s about all I’m going to say about that – it hit the wrong spot. Rest in peace buddy.

So so sorry to hear of Terry’s passing. (Tanis and Alvin’s Parents/inlaws).
Gary and Gail..
Janet we are keeping you and yours in our thoughts
Terry was one of the solid older Glenwood guys the next generation of Glenwood guys looked up to. Always enjoyed not only hearing, but being involved in the old stories from the St. V, Marigold, and the old Glenwood Community Club. I was lucky enough to enjoy lots of fun and laughs with Terry at hockey – Glenwood Old Stars vs. Glenwood No-Stars, slo-pitch and numerous area “get togethers”. You will be missed Helgy. Cheers my friend. My heartfelt condolences to Janet, Todd & Jamie.
Terry my dear friend. You had nothing but good to say about everyone. That in its self spoke very loudly about the man you were. Rest In Peace my friend and keep your line tight.
To the Halldorson Family,
So very sorry to hear of your loss. We remember Terry (at Relax Ridge) as a real nice guy who was a Viking. We enjoyed a visit with him at the R R Family Fun Day a few years ago. May he rest in peace.

My sympathies to Janet and family.
There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go.
Terry spent countless hours with me in the boat demonstrating his “finesse” fishing techniques. So many wonderful memories…like his Bro. Jake “PARDON” routine! A very good man taken way too soon. Our hearts go out to Janet and the boys. Tight lines, my friend. ‘Till we meet again.

So very sorry to hear of Terry’s passing. Richard and I want to extend our condolences to Janet and family. RIP
I was one of the people who Terry would meet and greet on the golf course, most recently a couple of weeks ago. He was living his last days doing what he enjoyed. I even got to play a round of golf with him before the pandemic. I enjoyed his friendliness very much. Condolences to the family.

Janet, Todd and Jamie,
We were so sorry to come across Terry’s obituary. We have fond memories of spending time with all of you during Jacques’ and Jamie’s minor hockey years. Terry was always happy go lucky and easy going. He will be missed. Our deepest sympathies.
Janet, Todd and Jamie,
To say the least, I was deeply saddened and overcome with disbelief when I found out about the passing of Terry. I have so many fond memories of Terry during our Windsor Park days. From adult slow pitch to our boys baseball and hockey days. Terry was always there when he needed to be, whether it was to give a helping hand fixing up the ball diamonds or tuning up a lawnmower. Always so helpful and fun to be with. May he Rest In Peace.
Our sincere condolences.
