Obituary For Terry Williamson

January 19, 1946 - June 23, 2021

Bye dear…I love you - Val

Terry passed away at home after a short battle with cancer, peaceful and comforted by the presence of his wife and children. He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by Val, his wife of 53 years, daughter Parri Ulrich and son Mike (Michelle) Williamson. He leaves a legacy for his five grandchildren, Heather Ulrich (Steve Pynn), Tanner Ulrich, Brennan Ulrich, Leeah Williamson and Nicholas Williamson. He is also survived by his two sisters, Bevy and Linda, and was pre-deceased by his parents Clarence and Winnifred, brother Bill and sister Francie, as well as his special brother-in-law, Keith Patterson.

Terry was born in Berwyn, Alberta, grew up in Manning, and was educated at the U of A in Edmonton. His distinguished professional career as a chartered accountant included the partnership at Froment & Williamson, with branches in Leduc, Alberta and Yellowknife, NWT. Terry left the firm for other ventures, including farming on Highway 13 near Pigeon Lake, Alberta which was a season of life that he loved. They relocated to Grande Prairie in 2004, where Val and Terry spent many busy years caring for family and friends, happily enjoying watching their children and grandchildren thrive.

Terry will be remembered for his intelligence and business acumen, work ethic, and sharp wit. He loved sports, both to participate and watch, and in earlier years was an avid hunter and fisherman. More recently he could be found enjoying a highly competitive game of cards and following current events closely. He was loved, respected, appreciated and will be sadly missed.

We will honor Terry at a gathering of friends on Saturday, July 10th at 11:00 am at the Glen Leslie Cemetery. Luncheon at noon at the Williamson home in Grande Prairie, 9013-117 Avenue.

Care entrusted to Bear Creek Funeral Home 780 830 7742 www.bearcreekfuneral.com

Condolences

  • To my very special friend Val and family, my sincere condolences on the loss of a loving husband, father and grandfather. Words are simply not enough but long distance thoughts of love and support is what we are sending. We have so many good memories that will live on and will pop up in everyday situations that will bring joy to our lives. I had the privilege of being Keith Patterson's companion caregiver so for years became a part of the family. We enjoyed many hours at the family acreage in Bezanson with Val, Terry and Keith where we worked together as a team on various tasks. Terry's sense of humour was priceless and Keith's input made everyone's day. Val you are a friend like no other and I thank you for giving me the opportunity to get close to Terry and family. Terry was a great guy and will be terribly missed but never forgotten. Sending lots of love your way, Erica & Ken Wilson
