Passed in: British Columbia, Canada

BLACK.Terry passed away suddenly on Sunday, June 28, 2009. He was an accomplished singer/songwriter and artist throughout his life. In 1964 at the age of fifteen he released the single "Unless You Care" and it was a huge success across Canada. Appearances on shows such as Dick Clark's American Bandstand soon followed. He continued performing during the late 60s and early 70s as part of the Toronto cast of the musical Hair and as a member of the band Dr. Music and then released hits such as "Down the Road to L.A" with his wife Laurel Ward. For decades after and wherever he lived he translated the beauty around him into sculpture, paintings and song. In recent years he struggled with the effects of Multiple Sclerosis but he never lost his sense of humour, his fascination with nature, his creativity and his compassion for those whom he loved. He will be profoundly and deeply missed by his partner Pamela Tedder, his two sons Alex Black and Scott Black, and the mother of his sons Laurel Ward. Babes the dog, his faithful companion, also misses him very much. A service will be held at St. Andrews on the Square in Kamloops on Friday, July 3rd at 2:00 p.m. Terry loved animals - donations in lieu of flowers can be made to the BCSPCA Kamloops Branch
