Obituary

HORSMAN: William Terrance (Terry)

July 20, 1945 – June 21, 2019

The sudden passing of Terrance William Horsman better known to all his friends and family as “Terry” on June 21st, 2019 was a shock to many. He is survived by his wife Judy (nee Baron), his son Shaun Michael Horsman and his wife Cortney (nee Leonard), his daughter Brenda Smith and her two sons Joseph Smales and his wife Sara, and Adam (all of Regina) and his sister Betty Donais of Calgary, Alta. (Len Donais predeceased) and their four children David, Tim, Maureen and Michelle.

Terry’s character was that of kindness, gentleness, compassion and a lot of humour! He always had a joke or a story to tell and many will miss that part of him. There always was a soft spot in his heart for those who were sad or having a hard time and he would listen or help any way he could.

His life was as unique as he was. As a pilot for most of his working life he flew in many different parts of Canada and even to the North Pole where “any way you looked was South!” he has flown all over the world, in different weather conditions (many adverse), he’s flown across Hudson’s Bay at night using only star shots and a beacon as his guide and in the mountains landing on sloping airstrips. He flew a jet for a wealthy business man flying into Las Vegas at all hours of the day and night until he had enough of that after being in Vegas so many times in eighteen months!

Terry started flying “Fire Bombers” for the Government fighting fires all over Canada and as faraway as the USA, Chile, Australia, and Mexico. His airplane, Tanker #4 now sits in the Air Museum in Saskatoon. When his fire bombing career ended Terry decided “Crop Dusting” looked promising and he flew a bi-wing Ag Cat out of Nokomis, Sask. for Beeler Seeds. There were many other airplanes Terry flew on different jobs over the years, a PBY, Beaver, Air Tractor (radial and turbine) DC3, Bristol Freighter to name a few.

Realizing his flying career was over after an injury to his right wrist he turned to the work his wife did and spent the whole summer working and riding in a community pasture with her looking after, moving and treating cattle! He loved the outdoors and learned the job very well, he learned to sit a horse all day despite the saddle sores on his backside! It was a great summer!

In many, many ways Terry was a special person, he was a good man, he cared about people and wanted them to be happy. A simple thought and aim in life but so important!
I know I will miss him and many others will too, he will long remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.

Our hearts are heavy and very sad at the loss of our dear friend. We send our love and deep felt sympathy to Judy, Shaun and Cortney. Terry was one of a kind! A good man, with a kind heart and "unique" sense of humor! We will always remember Terry with a smile and look back so very fondly on all the good times and laughter we have had over the past 25 years. We will miss hearing him tell his stories of his life adventures and his very bad jokes, lol!! But we will do our best to continue to share his stories as they are too good to not be remembered!! He will be missed very much by us and many others that knew him. Sending love, hugs and our heart felt condolences. Darren & Tammy Holmes

Something that we will always remember Terry for was a unique idiosyncrasy that he had and that was he could never call anyone (male gender) by their first name..he had a nickname for all his friends and even family. He was and will remain a friend, our sincerest condolences to Judy, Shaun and Cortney.
