It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Terry Teruo Shishido on September 14, 2017 surrounded by his wife and two sons.

Terry was well known in Kamloops for his athletic abilities particularly in hockey and baseball. Growing up he played minor hockey in Kamloops and continued to play for various teams including the Kamloops Jr. Rockets, Cranbrook Royals, Quesnel Kangaroos, Salmon Arm Aces and concluded his hockey career with the Oriental Express Oldtimers hockey team.

For the last 27 years, Terry faced serious medical issues with quiet grace and dignity.
The family would like to thank Dr. Terry Simpson and Sue, Dr. Servaas Swart, Erin and Dominique and the staff at Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice and all previous caregivers for their compassionate words and care.
