  • Terry was a long-time friend of my father Denis Prodan though I considered him also my friend and glad to get to know him better since moving to the Okanagan. A fellow Zete, it was Terry that introduced my to the Zeta Psi Fraternity during my time at UWO.

    • Miles, we appreciate your memories and wanted you to know Dad also considered you a friend. He talked of you fondly. So many memories – thinking of the many days our family spent skiing at Lake Louise with your dad.

  • Dear Suzy, Please accept my deepest sympathies on Terry’s passing. I have very kind memories of time we spent together in my undergraduate years at UBC. He was always the gentleman with kind words and encouragement to all. His opinions on Architecture, politics and society were thoughtfully and respectfully presented and well worth our serious attention. His civilized approach to fun and humour were a pleasure to be around. He was mature beyond his years in those days and it was a great pleasure to know him. May your happy memories comfort you. Kindest regards,
    Martin Gifford

  • Our condolences to Suzy and all the extended Tanner Family. We will remember Terry with great respect and fondness but regret we are unable to join you to celebrate his life. The photo in the newspaper was ‘timeless’ and beautifully portrays the very kind, handsome, talented gentleman he was throughout his life.
    Sending love to all,
    Donald and Shan Cross

  • My sincere wishes of comfort to Suzy and all at this sad time. Terry was a best friend over many years. We were in touch regularly, and enjoyed recalling a variety of adventures. His gentle, pleasant nature will now be sorely missed.
