Terry Whyte

WHYTE, Terrance - WFP Obituary Photo.jpg



March 7, 1941 – October 24, 2021

It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Terry on October 24 at the age of 80 years.


Terry is survived by his two sons, Brandon Whyte (Annie) and Scott Whyte-Franco (Sherry); grandchildren, Samantha and Indiana; as well as his sister Glenda Whyte and her children, Bruce, Lance, Darren, Todd and Sandy.  He was predeceased by his wife Wendy; daughter Tiffany; sister Karen; niece Lauren as well as parents, Otwald and Geraldine. 


Terry was born and raised in the beautiful North End of Winnipeg! He moved out to Alberta in the 1970’s where he excelled as a home electronics salesman (Top Salesman of the year for Sansui Stereo 9 years in a row!). At that time he remarried (Wendy) and adopted a beautiful daughter, Tiffany (TJ!). Sadly, losing both way too soon. He then moved back to Manitoba to be closer to his grandchildren, Sammi and Indi. He enjoyed the next 15 years at his home in Gull Lake. Never fully retiring, working for the Brokenhead band office as a Security officer for the last 7 years. Taking those duties seriously and to heart, touching many in that community.


Whytey was an unbelievable son, father, brother, uncle, and friend. Truly touching everyone that met him. He was always there for his friends and family.

To say he was a special human being is a massive understatement. He lived life to the fullest, he was a rock star….with legendary stories! His unparalleled positive attitude towards life filled and lifted family and friends. An affect that left everyone who met him feeling blessed and more alive.


With the charisma of ten men (and the volume too!), he was part Don Cherry, Foghorn Leghorn, W.C. Fields and Dale Carnegie (and Richard Petty!); no one told a joke, sold a product, motivated people or spun a yarn like he could. A God of the ol’ “Dog & Pony” show, he could razzle dazzle and schmooze like no one.


He was the life of the party. He commanded the room and engaged people with such ease. He was truly born to it. He will be remembered with pride the way he treated people. He left all of his friends and family with spectacular memories and stories to tell for the next 100 years.

Happiness and Laughter.

He will be missed dearly by so many.


In Accordance with his wishes, cremation has taken place and no formal service will be held. There will, however, be a celebration of life (an old fashioned Irish Wake) to be held on November 13, 2021 from 1pm to 4pm at Shannon’s Irish Pub located at 175 Carlton St., Winnipeg, MB.


In lieu of flowers, Whytey would love for you to donate to a charity that’s close to your heart, in his name.


 “May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your face”


And, one of his faves;


“As you slide down the bannisters of life, may the splinters never point the wrong way”
