Terrance Lloyd "Terry" MacDonald
Terrance Lloyd "Terry" MacDonald – 72 of Kentville, passed away on Monday, July 6, 2020 in Shannex – Orchard Court, Kentville. Born in Sheet Harbour, he was a son of the late Angus and Marie Roberge (Johnson) MacDonald. At a very early age, Terry knew what he wanted to be when he grew up, a policeman, following in the footsteps of his grandfather, Clary Johnson of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Terry worked in policing in several towns in the Annapolis Valley, including Berwick, Middleton and Hantsport. During his career, he also worked in the provinces of Alberta and Ontario. Terry received several commendations during the years he worked as a police officer. He loved his job and was very happy every day to go and do his duty. He was well liked among his peers, as well as people he met around the towns he worked. Terry often spoke fondly of his buddies on the force and remained friends with many of them all his life. After Terry retired, he loved to go to McDonald’s in New Minas to have morning tea with his friends and continued to do this until his health no longer allowed him to do so. He loved dancing at the Kentville Legion and had a great love for all types of music, especially Elvis. Terry is survived by his wife of seven years, Helen (Reid) MacDonald; her children, Jamie Harper (Alana), Bedford and Bobbi Harper, Woodville; his brother, Clarence (Glenice) MacDonald, Miramichi, NB; seven nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his sister, Jean Smith and his brother, Blair MacDonald. A special thanks to his caregivers at our house the last two years allowing Terry to stay at home.
