With deepest sorrow the family of Terry Wilkinson announces his passing on
December 19th after a brief illness.
Lovingly remembered by his wife of 48 years, Shirley (Hancock), three daughters and their families: Kathy (Brian Baker), Carmen (Gary Hanson) and Debbie (John
Nystad), 7 grandchildren: Matthew & Lesley-Ann Laird, Alexandra, Garrett & Lauren Hanson and Mitchell & Taylor Nystad, and 2 great grandchildren: Elise & Tessa Laird. Survived by his brother Robert Wilkinson (Vivian) of Laguna Woods, CA and 5 nephews & their families. Predeceased by his parents, Dr. Egbert & C. Kathleen Wilkinson.
Terry had a successful career in the oilfield servicing industry. He had a
passion for golf, playing gin and betting on pretty much anything. He was a
fixture at The Derrick Golf & Winter Club for 50 years and after retiring early,
enjoyed many years as a member of PGA West in La Quinta, CA. He was a wonderful man and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
Cremation has taken place. A celebration of Terry’s life will be held in the
spring of 2015.
