Obituary

The Syrie family sadly announces the passing of Terrance (Terry) Syrie, a cherished father, grandfather, brother, and uncle, on March 30th, 2024, at Bluewater Hospital's palliative care unit, following complications from a fall. Just two days prior, on March 28th, he joyously celebrated his 74th birthday surrounded by family. In his final moments, he was embraced by the love of his family. Born on March 28th, 1950, he embodied integrity and empathy throughout his life, touching countless hearts with his warm smile and boundless generosity. He was a father to five children, Jason Syrie (Lulia Syrie), Michela Paul-Syrie (Brian Paul) Samantha Adkisson-Syrie (Charlie Adkisson) Alexa Keller-Syrie (Nathan Keller) and Teejay Victorino-Syrie, and grandfather to his eight grandchildren. Terry enjoyed spending time with his family, creating memories filled with laughter and happiness. Predeceased by his parents Raymond and Helen Syrie. In addition to his children and grandchildren, Terry is survived by his two brothers, Paul Syrie (Barbara) and Peter Syrie (Carla) with whom he shared a life time of moments from the everyday to special family celebrations. Terry served his community as a Firefighter and as a Registered Nurse for many years. His absence will be deeply felt by those who had the privilege of knowing him. His spirit will endure in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. May he rest in eternal peace, knowing he was cherished and adored by his family. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date. Remembrances and condolences may be expressed to the family online in “Terry’s Guestbook” at mccormackfuneralhomesarnia.com.

Condolences

Learned today of Terry's death from my Aunt and my cousin So glad that this information was posted online by his family to honour him for the kind heart he was to many of us. That is how we (Mike and I) celebrate him too. Memories of Florida trips together as kids , Tabs suppers, standing up as a Jr. bridesmaids at only 13, (like a little sister) and visiting him and Aunt Helen after Uncle Ray's death. All good memories forever unmarred by later life circumstances that changes many Last year we had the best evening with him and so many laughs when we came to Petrolia to spend time with him. So happy to hear that he was able to celebrate his final birthday surrounded by those he loved most before leaving this earthly experience that had been very difficult albeit hard for him during these last few years. Glad I was able to give him that day pictures that had been given to me that were actually his. We looked at them together and it was a blessing for me to get them to him (although I am still not sure where mine from his mom for me ever ended up) but it was evident how much he cared for every one in the album that he viewed. Will look forward to hearing of the 'future plans to honor him publicly later' as it may be the only chance we may ever get to see his family again all together. Thinking of you all today and the united loss you are all sharing or feeling at this time. We look forward to seeing you then, is our hope, when all plans are finalized to celebrate his life. With love to a man we had every reason only to love and laugh with from Mike and Mary Lee Felder
