Just received some sad news that Terry Lewis passed away in his 61st year on the 24th day of July 2013, from injuries that he had acquired from an accident.  Terry joined the military as a young man and was proud to serve his country as a member of the Royal Canadian Regiment,  2nd Airborne Commando  and the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry. Terry also served in Cyprus with Delta Company, 2 Commando, during the Turkish Invasion in 1974.  I had the privilege to serve with Terry on a six week exchange trip with the 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, North Carolina.  He was an excellent soldier and well liked by everyone who knew him.

Terry is survived by his six siblings Darlene, Roger, Sandra, Michael, Katherine and Deborah and their families. He also leaves to mourn, his  daughter Kyla and her husband Brett Murrell, as well the Morton family, the Jager family and many friends. Condolences from all members of Commando.org go out to Terry’s family.

At Terry’s request there was no service and donations can be made to a charity of your choice on Terry’s behalf.

    Terry was a good friend and a great soldier. Served with him in 1 PPCLI Calgary late seventies/ early eighties. A good man and a hard loss to take. I know many feel the same way. Fair winds and soft landings. Rest in Peace, Terry.
