Melmer, Terry


MELMER- With heavy hearts and reflective pride, we announce the passing of Terry, on Friday, July 12th, after a courageous battle with cancer, age 68. Cherished by his soul mate and wife of 47 years Francine, sons Sean (Ron) and Jason (Jodie) and his favourite rug rats-grandchildren Paige and Bryce. Predeceased by his parents (Russell and Margaret) and brother (David). Terry became the proverbial patriarch of all things “Melmer”. A dedicated Mason and proud Shriner, he tirelessly served his community through various volunteer efforts. Despite his towering stature, he bewildered and entertained all by accumulating various Volkswagen convertibles of continually decreasing size. A true comedian, he loved to make people laugh, unless politics came up- then it was time to fasten your debating shoes. Ten months ago, after a particularly grim diagnosis of Stage four cancer, he commenced the greatest fight of his life. Never down, never discouraged he fought and inspirited everyone he touched right up until the final hours, with his family at his side. Never forgotten, he will be remembered as he lived-a winner…

A public memorial service to celebrate Terry’s life will be held at Williams Funeral Home, 45 Elgin St., St. Thomas on Tuesday, July 16th at 11:00 a.m. Cremation has taken place. Visitation at the funeral home on Monday evening from 7-9 p.m. A memorial service will be held at the funeral home on Monday evening at 6:30 p.m. by Officers and Members of St. David’s Lodge #302 A.F. and A.M. Flowers gratefully declined, share at favourite story and donations would be appreciated to the St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital (Chemotherapy Unit), Talbotville United Church or the Shriners’ (transportation Unit).

Williams Funeral Home
The Williams Funeral Home was founded in 1893 by P.R. Williams and is one of the oldest Funeral businesses in the province. Over the next seven decades the business was passed down through several generations in the Williams Family. In the eariler years they occupied a number of different buildings along Talbot Street and in 1929 they purchased the building at 45 Elgin Street, from which they still operate. In 1966, Gordon Hughson, who had operated the Hughson Funeral Home in Aylmer for the previous twenty one years, purchased the funeral home and continued the long tradition of dedication and service. Currently, the funeral home is operated by his sons, Allan and Gary Hughson.
