In Loving Memory

Charles Terry Crandlemire

Terry went home to be with the Lord on September 20, 2023 at the age of 82 years old. He was born in Ft. McLeod, Alberta to Charles and Kathleen Crandlemire. His father was a mechanic in the armed forces stationed at Ft. McLeod.

The family moved to Dewdney, BC when Terry was about 5 years old. Terry then was raised by his step-father Harry Stowards. Terry attended Dewdney Elementary and Mission High School. He worked as a farm hand in the area along with growing up on the family farm. He moved to the Okanagan around 1968.

He worked for Baird Brothers for a number of years, then bought his own semi-truck and drove for Noca Dairy, West Rim, Sure Crop, Hunterline and travelled in the USA, BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan delivering goods. After he sold his truck, he worked for Okanagan Aggregates for a few years. He had to take an early retirement because of a back injury.

Terry enjoyed his hobbies which included music, puzzles, cards, league bowling and model trains. He loved to travel and to spend time camping with family and friends.

Terry leaves behind his loving wife Judy, his children Dustin (Tanya), Robin (Andrina), Sonia, David and Aisha; 11 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild; two sisters: Sharon (Andy Bannick) and Lynn (Lyle Lutz); four brothers: Walt (Judy Crandlemire), Wayne (Lori Crandlemire), Len (Jacqui Stowards) and Robert (Tina Stowards). He was predeceased by his sisters Shirley and Wendy, parents Charlie Crandlemire, Kathleen and Harry Stowards.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Ashton Creek Christian Fellowship on Saturday, October 7, 2023 at 1:00pm.

    Terry and Judy helped me rise my boys when I was going through my divorce. I couldn’t of asked for a kinder family to help me with that. “Grandpa Terry” was a warm, caring, and a superior human being. He will be sorely missed and remembered fondly.

    Condolences to Judy ,family and friends. I enjoyed Terry’s visits to our Grandparents farm Bob and Martha Stowards on Salts Rd. Terry’s 56 Pontiac and later a 1959 Red Caddilac convertible. Great family reunions thereafter. You will be missed as a great cousin and mentor.
