at the age of 62 years

A celebration of life will be held on March 14, 2015 at 11am at Shuswap Community Church, 3151 6 Avenue Northeast, Salmon Arm.

It is with great sadness that we announce that Terry Evanishin passed away peacefully on March 8, 2015 with all of his girls by his side. Terry was 62 years old and fought a hard battle with diabetes and kidney disease.

Terry leaves behind his loving wife of 33 years, Denice, his three beautiful daughters, Tasha (Clark) Bostrom, Lindsay (Chris) Lawson, Lacey (Mike) Curle and four amazing grandchildren, Brayton and Davin Lawson, and Ali and Dane Curle. He also leaves his sister Debbie Ewanishin, and niece Robyn (Derek) whom he was very close to and survived his many pranks, four step brothers; Ray (Cindy), Dwayne (Teresa), Rob (Sue), Don (Denise) Pukas and step sister Patti Pukas whom he taught many lessons to and enjoyed getting into trouble with as well as numerous nieces and nephews and great-nieces and great nephews all whom will miss his crazy antics.

Terry was predeceased by his son Dayton Evanishin, mother and step father Joyce and Russell Pukas.

Terry was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and moved to BC in 1986 where he raised and watched his beautiful family grow. He was a strong, gentle man who loved a good laugh, a good drink and his family by his side. He stayed true to this with his battle and could always be seen with a smile through the tough days. He enjoyed quadding, camping, snowmobiling, building anything and being with those he loved and who loved him.

A special thank you to Dr Laurens, Dr. Hepburn and the Renal team at Royal Inland Hospital and their dedication to helping Terry.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Terry’s name may be made to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation, Box 265, Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 4N3.


  1. Denice & Family:
    I was saddened to hear of Terry’s passing. I was Terry’s 3rd cousin, and remember him from the Peterson and Humboldt days! (Evanishen side). He did have a certain unique sense of humor! His aunt Frances lives about a block and one half from me. She has not been doing very well.
    Once again my sincerest sympathies to you and yours,
    Tony Dutchak–also my brother Joe.
