FLEMING, Terence - November 16, 1939 - January 30, 2023
It is with deep sadness that the family announces the passing of Terence Fleming, on Monday, January 30, 2023, at Oshawa General Hospital after a brief illness following surgery.
Terence leaves behind beloved wife and sweetie of over 60 years, Patricia (Pat).
Terence was predeceased by his parents, Annie and Charles Fleming, who provided a wonderful upbringing in England despite their both being deaf. Terence learned both sign language and lip reading and was proficient at both until his passing.
He also leaves behind to mourn his sister, June Bole (Alan) and their children, Amanda and Elizabeth; sister-in-law, Susan Seddon (Frank) and their children, Richard and Sarah; brother-in-law, Barrie Kendall (Gail); sister-in-law, Janet Watson (Keith) and their children, Amie and Daniel.
Terence and Pat met in 1958 at one of Muriel Riley's Saturday night dances where Terence swept Pat off her feet. After courting and wooing Pat they married in 1962 and enjoyed a full, happy and healthy life for over 60 years.
In 1965, Terence and Pat moved to Canada to start a new adventure together. Upon hearing of the wonderful life Terence and Pat were making for themselves they were soon followed to Canada by several friends who have remained close all their lives.
Retiring in 1999, Terence and Pat spent 22 wonderful years traveling throughout Europe, Australia and Asia, returning home to England many times.
Private cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, February 26th, from 2 to 4 p.m., at Rotary Park Pavilion, 177 Lake Driveway West, Ajax. Please RSVP to Patricia.
