It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Terry McSheffrey on October 31, 2022, who died peacefully at home with his family by his side. Terry was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma, a rare form of cancer in June 2022. He fought a short but courageous battle.

Terry is the son of Agnes McLaughlin-McSheffrey and the late Herbie McSheffrey of Wakefield, Quebec.

He will be sadly missed by his wife of 22 years, Lorna and his twins, Cole, and Madison, at home; Siblings, twin sister Teresa, Moncton, Victor (Mary) Ottawa and Peter (Kelly) Winchester, Ontario.

Terry dedicated 42 years in the fire alarm industry, starting with Edwards in Ottawa, as a technician, group leader and later sales. In 2011, he moved to New Brunswick to work with Troy Life and Fire Safety Ltd in sales. He loved his work and many of his customer have become long time friends.

Terry loved being a dad, teaching his children how to ski, drive a car and changing a tire. He spent his time at Maddy’s soccer games, coaching Cole’s soccer teams over several summers and hanging out with the kids. The family enjoyed many trips together, Skiing in Quebec and North Conway, Florida, Hawaii, most recently Spain and France for Terry’s 60th Birthday. We are a family that enjoyed spending time together.

He enjoyed woodworking, gardening, motorcycling, his mom’s butterscotch pie, Friday nights at home with Lorna and watching the games of his beloved Ottawa Senators.
