I want to say I was very fortunate to have The Tubman family as my Foster Family for 2 years and they continued to care about me and do follow ups. I saw them all the time. Terry was an amazing man and I will miss him very much. Priscilla Jason and Brenda I am truly sorry for your loss. Thank you for finding my parents for me and continuing to love me unconditionally when my forever family adopted me. Xoxoxo

Deeply saddened for the family of this great guy. I first met Terry right out of Bible College when I went to be a youth pastor in Hanover. Terry was always kind, encouraging and supportive. His family quickly became friends to me. Praying that God's consoling grace and sustaining comfort will carry the family during this time of loss and sadness.

— Rev. Marc Gauvreau, August 10, 2021

Terry meant a lot of things to a lot of people. He was a very special man with a wonderfully unique sense of humour. He helped shape the lives of not only his family, but also the lives of others in need. His example was most often tempered by his silly antics which brought joy and laughter to us all. He will forever be in our hearts. While his passing brings deepfelt sorrow, it also brings comfort in knowing that he is now at peace. We are all richer for having known and loved him. Please accept our condolences. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family.

— Stella and Rob Gervais, August 10, 2021
