Obituary of Howard Terrance ARTHURS

Howard Terrance Arthurs (Terry), was a husband, father, grandfather, businessman, firefighter, and a friend to many. He passed away suddenly at his home on Monday, April 18th at the age of 77. Terry grew up in Harriston, Ontario with his parents Jack and Phyllis Arthurs. September 30, 1967 Terry became the loving husband to Cheryl (Moffatt). He was extremely proud of his sons Brian (Terrilyn) and Scott (Corrine) and a cherished Poppa to Brandon, Brad, Jackson, Dylan, Landon and Braiden. Terry will be sadly missed by his three sisters Laurie Wall (Brian), Jackie Kelly (John) and Jill Fischer (Frank). When Terry was 16 years old, he started to work for his father driving a fuel truck at Jack Arthurs & Son, a White Rose fuel distributor. Terry moved to Orangeville, Ontario on December 13, 1963 and started his own fuel company, Terry Arthurs Fuel Ltd. After almost 60 years, his successful business, Arthurs Fuel, continues to grow and is now proudly run by his sons Brian and Scott, with his 3 eldest grandsons now working in the family business. Terry, Brian and Scott were not only father, sons and business owners, they were the best of friends. Terry was always only a phone call away. Terry was a very active member of the community. He joined the Orangeville Fire Department in 1967 and retired as Squad 1 Captain in 1999. Terry was a member of Kinsmen and K40 service clubs in Orangeville as well as Dufferin Northern Peel Angler and Hunters. Terry was proud to sponsor many of the local sports organizations in town including Orangeville Minor Hockey, Orangeville Minor Soccer, and Northmen Lacrosse and humbly honoured of being the longest standing sponsor of Orangeville Tigers Girls Hockey. Terry and Cheryl moved to the Markdale area, where nothing made him happier than having his family and friends at “The Property”. It was very common for Terry and Cheryl to host family and friends for camping weekends. He loved his ponds, feeding the fish, cutting grass, blowing snow and puttering in the shop. The Property was where he loved to be. Terry had a love for Nascar. For over 32 years he packed up his motorhome and headed to the races, where he has met long lasting friends all over North America. Terry will be greatly missed by his family, friends and business associates. A celebration of Terry’s life will be held. Details to be confirmed. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Terry may be made to the Centre Grey Health Services Foundation-Markdale Hospital.
