We Remember

WINSTON, Terrance Keith (TK)

With Jane by his side, TK passed away at the age of 68 in Kelowna B.C. on July 3, 2014 after a lengthy battle with industry related lung disease. TK is survived by his loving partner of 17 years, Jane Colburn and her sons (Steven & Paul and family, her step-sons Craig & Grant and family); his daughter Carrie and family (fiancé Randy & step-daughter Elise) and his half-brother Kelly and family (Karen and Kyle). TK was born October 7th, 1945 in Vancouver B.C. and became a world traveler in his late teens and early twenties. He returned to Canada after the passing of his mother (Cleata Hughes) and became a father the following year. Most of his working life was spent as a foreman on hydro dams throughout Canada as sand-blaster and spray-painter which led to his illness. One of his greatest passions was classic cars and TK could always be seen in one of the many classics he had meticulously restored. TK made great friends in his lifetime, especially in Christina Lake, B.C. (where he called “paradise”); it was here that he and Jane enjoyed most of their lives together. TK will forever be known for his great story telling that was only surpassed by his wonderful sense of humour.TK will live on in the stories we share about him as he inspires us all to live our own great stories. TK’s family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff and volunteers of Central Okanagan Hospice House. TK’s family will have a private service and kindly ask that in lieu of flowers, please make donations to Central Okanagan Hospice House in Kelowna B.C.

    I had the priveledge to build the 383 stroker that was in his El Camino. I just googled his name to give him a call and see how everything was going, I only had a few opprotunities to see him since he moved to Kelowna and I moved to Cold Lake. I’ve since started a hobby shop and was excited to share the news with him, i’m happy to have the opprotunity to say he was an ever so interesting man that had a lot of compassion for those around him. From my first experience with him to my last, it was always a pleasure! Lots of laughs, even at the worst of times. He always spoke highly of his family and my heart goes out to them.
