Obituary for Terrance Malcom Newcombe
It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Terrance Malcolm Newcombe, 53 of Upper Tantallon,NS.
Terry passed at home surrounded by loved ones after a long battle with sarcoidosis.
He was the son of Sheila Selena Slaunwhite (Williams) Upper Tantallon and Garry Gerald Newcombe (Sackville)
He was also survived by his sister Tina Melanson and Neice Haley Melanson both of Upper Tantallon.
Terry attended Dartmouth High School. He later worked at Canway Graphics with his father for a number of years. He eventually went on to run Atlantic Foil Specialties and later co-owned a prosperous silk-screening company in Halifax.
He was an avid fly fisherman and animal lover. His wild squirrel and various wildlife on our deck will miss his daily feedings. For years, our dog Nike (predeceased) never left his side. They were true buddies till the end. I think he will be waiting for Terry.
Terry was the kindest soul and never let things get him down for long. Despite years of battling sarcoidosis and all of the side effects of this disease. Even with a damaged spine, paralyzed leg from the knee down, broken neck with complications that left him in a neck brace for the last 20 years of his life. He always kept his sense of humor and positive spirit. No matter where he lived he made friends with everyone he met in the community. He seemed to attract people with his spirit and courage. His sense of humor just made him so contagious. He was devoted to his mother through her ongoing battle with lung cancer Always by her side. He was the best "Uncle Bubby" to his niece Haley Morgan Melanson, who loved him dearly. He was a protective older brother who loved to prank his sister. Terry was the best guy you would ever want to meet and he will be missed by friends and family.
I don't know why he had to go so soon, but I do know, if love could have saved him he would have lived forever.
Gone but not forgotten Bobby will never forget you we love you so much.
