We Remember

HIKIDA, Terry Takeo

January 22, 1938 — January 13, 2016

Terry was born January 22, 1938 in Vancouver to Gengo “George” and Tome “Elsie” Hikida. He is survived by his sister Margie (Jack) Hatanaka and many nieces and nephews whom he loved and spent time with at sporting events and fishing, being an all around great uncle.


Terry graduated from Kelowna High School and played hockey as a youth. He often spoke of Coach O’Reilly that told the boys, “Don’t fight, don’t fight, don’t fight! BUT if your gonna fight…DON”T LOSE!”  Uncle Terry loved to laugh.  Terry worked in the sawmill industry for 45 years and first started working in Monte Lake and then in Armstrong.


Upon retirement, he enjoyed very long walks, vegetable gardening, time with family and fishing. He was kind, happy and caring to the end, Terry passed quietly and peacefully five years to the day of joining the Sutherland Hill’s family.


Special thanks to all staff at Sutherland Hills Rest Home, Dr. Swart, Dr. Wickstrom, Burke Sanbrooks and David Henseleit at Springfield Funeral Home.


Terry will be laid to rest with his mother and father at the Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Sutherland Hills Rest Home (Recreation Department), 3081 Hall Road, Kelowna, BC, V1W 2R5 where they took excellent care of Terry for the last five years.  If you wish to send a condolence, post photos or share a memory, please scroll down the page to the area called “Share Your Condolences.”
