Leon Terence Lott, death notice; published in Vancouver Sun and/or The Province on Feb. 11, 2012; http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/vancouversun/obituary.aspx?pid=155828181: “December 5, 1920 – January 17, 2012. Terry’s flair for life meant many adventures; beginning from his father’s shoemaker shop on Denman Street to his travels as an industrial salesman throughout BC. One carefree summer, at Nat Bailey’s Whytecliff restaurant, Terry met Phyllis Faulkner, who became his partner in 61 years of treasured marriage. To everyone he met he brought a joie de vivre that was unforgettable. On January 16th, after a delightful dinner and a good bottle of red, Terry took out his saxophone and played “Won’t you come home Bill Bailey” with his young grandson on piano. That evening, he passed peacefully away in his sleep. Terry leaves Phyllis; his children Murray (Jane) Steven (Janette) and Tracy (Peter); grandchildren Mack, Avery and Keegan; 6 nieces and nephews, their spouses and children and many dear friends. In lieu of flowers, a contribution to St Paul’s Hospital Foundation Cardiac Services would be appreciated.”
