CURRIE, Terence MacDonald
(March 12, 1939 - June 27, 2019)

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Terry, peacefully, in Orchard View by the Mississippi, Almonte, ON. Son of the late Ned and Doris (née Hutchison) Currie, predeceased by his darling wife, Shirley (née Jones). He will be greatly missed by his brother Pat (Joan) and sister Jean, as well as his sons Bill (Rosina) and Dan (Aamina), and daughters Maureen (Dave) and Michelle (Alejandro), and his grandchildren, who all made him proud.  Sadly missed by his companion, Lucille Hillier-Kean, as well as his nephews and niece, and his many friends and neighbours. Born in Cranbrook, B.C., Terry spent most of his life happily on the Currie homestead near Panmure, ON.   As a young man he enjoyed baseball and hunting.  He graduated from SS#3, a one-room schoolhouse on the 3rd Line, to attend Arnprior DHS, and from there to St. Patrick's College in Ottawa.  He began his career teaching in Chesley, Ontario, but soon returned to the Valley to teach French at Almonte DHS.  There he made life-long friends, and had many happy years teaching and enthusiastically coaching football.  That was also where he met a young fellow teacher, Shirley, whom he pursued until she happily agreed to marry.  As a 'hobby' farmer, Terry spent many hours on the tractor, with a chainsaw, and repairing fences.  His retirement from teaching did not mean a retirement from football or farming, and he spent many further seasons coaching his beloved Thunderbolts, as well as briefer stints with the Arnprior Redmen and West Carleton Wolverines.  He helped found Almonte Celtfest and Almonte Alumni to support the school.  Always full of life, Terry loved to dance, especially Ottawa Valley square dancing, and was an inveterate traveler who was always planning his next trip. Terry had a life-long passion for telling the story of the people of the Ottawa Valley.  He was awarded the Canada 125 medal for his history of St. Peter Celestine's church in Pakenham, Rock of Faith.  He earned his M.A. in history from U. of Ottawa in 2005; the result of his studies was the book The Ottawa Valley's Great Fire of 1870.  Terry became a regular member of the Fitzroy Township Historical Society, serving as President and Past President.  He often gave tours of St. Peter Celestine's.

Mr. Currie was my French teacher and football coach during the mid 70’s, me being from the southern Mid-Atlantic state of Virginia I never picked up on French as well as I did football but he always was patient no matter how well I did!
We are so sorry to hear of his passing and send our deepest sympathy to the Currie Family.
My wife Lisa and I, my sister Beth and brother Lloyd had the pleasure of running into him in the hallways of ADHS during the last Almonte High School reunion in July of 2011.
Mr. Currie will be deeply missed, he touched and made a positive impact on so many people young and old.

My thoughts and prayers to you Dan and Bill and all the Currie family. Always enjoyed Terry's point of view be it sports or history etc. He was always welcoming and will miss hearing a "Gidday Fitz" from him around various football fields in the vally.
