SHERGOLD, Terrence Anthony (Terry) - 64, beloved husband of Shirley, passed away peacefully at home in Dartmouth, June 23, 2002, after a courageous battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his wife, Shirley, son, David and his brother, Ray. Terry was born February 14, 1938, in Victoria, B.C. He was predeceased by his father and mother, LCdr. (Ret'd) Harold "Tubby" and Joyce Shergold, (Victoria, B.C.) and by his older brother, Harold (Tova), (Chicago, Ill.). Terry is survived by his loving wife, Shirley and children, Dr. David (Elizabeth) Shergold, Toronto; Richard Shergold, Edmonton, Alta.; Susan (Rob) Kragt, Prince George, B.C.; Heather (Grant) Gibbons, Charleston, S.C.; 11 grandchildren; his brother, Ray (Elizabeth) Shergold, Victoria, B.C.; father-in-law, Tom Wilcox, Dartmouth. He was loved and admired by his family who will cherish his memory forever. "Terbear" will be sadly missed by his family and friends for his loving ways, humor and wise counsel. Following in his father's and grandfather's naval footsteps, Terry joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 1957. His distinguished service aboard many different warships resulted in his appointment as a member of the Order of Military Merit. He obtained the Queen's Commission and became a naval officer in 1989. He retired in 1994 after serving for more than 37 years. His proudest accomplishments included becoming a submariner, serving on both the east and west coasts, as well as achieving the high position of Maritime Command Chief. He was greatly respected and valued for his integrity and he will be fondly remembered for his leadership in caring for all sailors' well-being. Terry was very devoted to the Canadian Navy and following his retirement he continued his sense of duty by joining the Corp of Commissionaires which he actively served until his untimely passing. A memorial service to honor Terry will take place Friday, June 28, at 1:30 p.m. in Atlantic Funeral Home, 771 Main St., Dartmouth, LCDR Robert Humble officiating.
