  6. My deepest sympathies to the family. I got to know Terry about 30 years ago in his capacity as a surveyor. He was always very professional and a pleasure to work with. When I last saw Terry at the UDI Christmas event, he told me how much he was looking forward to retirement in Kelowna, I wish he could of experienced that.

    I first met Terry when he worked for Alberta Transportation. When I think of Terry, I think of passion and energy to follow his convictions. Terry wanted to implement change at Alberta Transportation, and he pursued his dreams with a passion, and that is his trademark. Terry is an inspiring man and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family as they deal with their loss at this time.

    Just returned from a committee meeting in Edmonton that Terry attended at which we had some very interesting discussions that Terry participated in as only Terry could. His insight on various topics at the meeting and at other gatherings such as the ALS annual meeting every spring was greatly appreciated and will be sorely missed by myself and by others I am sure. My sincere condolences to his family on the passing of a valued member of the surveying profession.

    My condolences to Terry’s family. I knew Terry for 40 years plus. He always had a passion for everything he did. The people in the City of Calgary once told me that Terry was second to none when it came to expertise in land development – I believe it. He was moving toward retirement and his misfortune robbed him of that I am sad to say. May God bless him and give his family some comfort.

    Hi Everyone,
    This is your long lost cousin from Sheboygan Wisconsin! I wanted to pass along my sympathies on the passing on Terry Hudema. I was so sad to hear about this. I always enjoyed when Terry came to Wisconsin to visit. As you already know, he’s such an exceptional person.
    All of his friends and family in Canada have been very fortunate to have been able to spend time with this great person. I wish I could have too!
    My prayers of strength and courage go out to all of his loved ones. Just know he is now being taken care of in a way that none of us could barely imagine.
    Please feel free to any of you to get in touch with me at any time.

    Love to everyone,
