Backlund, Terence Glen “Terry”
May 19, 1965 – April 23, 2021
It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden departure of Terry Backlund. Despite his deteriorating health, Terry fought bravely and was ever still the hard-working man and caring husband he had always strived to be until his passing on Friday, April 23rd with his loving wife Paula (nee Hughson) by his side.
Terry, a Cardiology Technologist at Battlefords Union Hospital, was very fond of his job, his co-workers, and his patients. He was always quick with a joke and was ready and willing to help wherever needed.
Predeceased by his father, Edwin, Terry is survived by his mother, Barbara, his daughter, Mary, his son, Connor, his brother, Randy, and his sister, Kim. He is also survived by his stepsons: Jesse and Cody (Demelza) Powell.
We would like to give our most sincere thanks to Dr. Abdul, as well as all the staff at Battlefords Union Hospital, 3rd North, and ICU, with a very heartfelt thank you to Lana and Shannon at St. Paul’s Hospital ICU for their incredible attention and care.
As requested by Terry, no funeral service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the BUH Foundation. Cremation arrangements in care of David Schurr – Mourning Glory Funeral Services (306) 978-5200.
