Obituary of Terry Dale Lees

LEES – The family of Terry Lees are saddened to announce his passing on November 27th at the age of 59 years. Terry was born on May 25, 1963 at Yorkton, Saskatchewan, a son of Fred and Pauline Lees. He grew up on the family farm in the Jedburgh district. He attended Jedburgh and Yorkton Schools. Following his education he gained employment at the Regional High School and Ram Industries. Diagnosed with Parkinson’s, Terry was forced to terminate his employment. When his illness demanded additional care Terry became a Long Term Care Resident of Country Meadows at Yorkton Nursing Home. Here he volunteered his time helping other residents with games and exercises. He also proudly looked after the flowers and plants that surrounded Country Meadows. The staff recalled him saying, “When I’m gone, I would like to be remembered as a very helpful person. Life is not perfect but very enjoyable.” Terry was predeceased by father Fred; brothers, Dean and Darcy and several aunties and uncles. Left to mourn his passing and cherish his memory is his mother Pauline, nephews Colby and Abby, aunties and cousins. Funeral Service was held on Friday, December 2, 2022 at Yorkton Memorial Gardens Family Centre with Rev. Father Yevhen Zadorozhnyi of St. Mary’s Ukrainian Catholic Church officiating. The responses were led by Lorne Stechyshyn and the Funeral Choir. The cross bearer was Elaine Gorchinski. The interment followed in the Garden of St. Luke at Yorkton Memorial Gardens with Colby Lees, Abby Lees, Ray Gorchinski, Thomas Schurko, Ronnie Hiduk and Lionel Woytas serving as the casket bearers.
