Terence Kenneth (Terry) (Satch) EASTMAN

EASTMAN-Terence Kenneth (Terry) (Satch) Passed away on Saturday, April 21st, 2012 in the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, Palliative Care Unit surrounded by his loving family. Born in Chemainus, BC on August 7th, 1938 to Korah and Vera Eastman the 13th child of 16 children. Predeceased by his son Michael in January 2003 and five siblings. Survived by his loving wife Nola of 52 years; children, son Kevin, daughter Carol (Kevin), daughter-in-law, Julie; grandchildren, Sydney and Colby Smith, Nathan and Kyle Eastman. Terry was always involved in sports from an early age, both playing and coaching, in 1957 he was middleweight champ in the BC Golden Gloves, and he played on the Ladysmith High School basketball championship Team in 1956 and also loved playing baseball and later softball with his sons on the Kids and Sitters. Terry was employed for many years in the Forest Industry as a log scaler, faller and finally as a longshoreman until his retirement in1999. Like most everything Terry took a keen interest and a hands on approach with the advancement and workings of ILWU Local 508. He was an avid gardener, loved fishing, hunting, and spent many hours enjoying these pastimes; he was a community volunteer with the Kinsmen Club, Ladysmith Fire Department, Search and Rescue, Fish Hatchery and a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles and the Royal Canadian Legion. Family meant everything to Terry and he will be sorely missed by them all. Satch was one of those real larger than life characters that a person rarely comes across in their lives. Special thanks to all the amazing staff at Palliative care, Dr. Kilvert and Dr. Brockley, and Family Practice Staff. There will be no service by request. In memory of Terry those so desiring may make a donation to the charity of their choice. Condolences may be offered to the family at telfordn@shaw.ca
