Past News & Events > Terry Lightfoot (May 21st 1935 - 15th March 2013)

On 5th March 2013, we sadly lost Terry Lightfoot, a very dear member of our group, after a brave battle with prostate cancer.   He was ‘Terry Lightfoot’ from Terry Lightfoot and his Jazzmen’, a Jazz band from the 50’s, but to us, he was another grandparent, doing what we were all doing.  Terry, along with his wife Iris, supported the group with our many activities and campaigns.  Always supportive and encouraging he was always trying to make a difference for other Grandparents.  


We will all remember him, for his unique way of ‘lightening’ a situation with a joke.  He had a special way of explaining something and then ending with a joke.


Some people just can’t help making a difference in our lives.  By simply being who they are, they make the world a little brighter, a little warmer, a little gentler, and when they’re gone we realise how lucky we are to have known them.
