Major Terence John Whitty, CD, KCStG

05 July 1944 – 25 June 2016

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Major Terence (Terry) Whitty, after a very brief battle with cancer. He leaves to mourn his loving partner Sandra (Clark), her two children Stephanie and Victoria, his children Shannon (Don Leverette) and Llyam, his grandchildren Gabrielle and Tegan, as well as many family and friends.

Terry’s career was spent in the restaurant industry in Montréal and Ottawa where he established, owned and operated several franchise and independent restaurants. He began his military career at a very young age and he spent many years serving in the Canadian Grenadier Guards, where his heart remained. In 1966 Terry transferred to the Cadet Services of Canada (now known as the CIC), and thus began his long association with Cadets. The last 15 years he served as National Executive Director of the Army Cadet League of Canada in Ottawa. He believed passionately in the Royal Canadian Army Cadets’ work with youth across Canada.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday July 9, 2016 at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 185, 141 du Grand Moulin, Deux-Montagnes, QC J7R 3C8. Condolences at 13h00, followed by a service at 14h00.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Army Cadet League of Canada, 66 Lisgar St., Ottawa, ON K2P 0C1, or using the ACLC donation form.  A scholarship for cadets will be set up in Terry’s memory.
