Avtar (Terry) Singh Grewal, born September 10, 1947. Son of Sardar Mota Singh (late) and Sham Kaur Grewal of Abbotsford passed away in his struggle against cancer on May 22, 2003.

Survived by his wife Harbans Kaur; dearest children, Rob, Josh and Paula; loving daughter-in-law Kam.

Terry moved to Canada from India on July 18, 1955. Terry farmed in Sumas for many years and then turned to trucking. He always loved the road. He compared a highway to life. “Bumpy Road”, “Lots of turns”, and “You never know when the highway is gonna end”.

Terry will be sadly missed by all those who loved and cared for him.


Our hearts are heavy with grief

as we say good-bye.

How will we carry on,

How will we survive,

We will cherish memories of you,

of so much love and laughter, May God protect you, Terry,

in the everafter,

A husband, a father

a son and loyal friend,

finally your suffering

has come to an end,

We are saddened by the loss of you

and hope to see you again,

We take comfort in knowing

you are no longer in pain.

Such a happy soul you were

smiling since birth,

We should have known you couldn’t

stay …. Angels cannot live on Earth.

We love you forever and always.
