Indian Time - A Voice from the Eastern Door



AKWESASNE – Edward Roger Terrance, 83, of 427 Cook Road, peacefully passed away in his sleep early Saturday morning, January 12, 2019 in the comfort of his home.

Ed was born in Akwesasne on August 23, 1935, the son of the late John P. and Rose M. (Sawatis) Terrance. On April 26, 1958, he married Ann Arquette at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Rochester; she predeceased him on June 23, 2015.

Ed was an ironworker with Local 33 in Rochester for over 30 years until his retirement. He was a die-hard Syracuse University fan and enjoyed riding his pontoon boat, especially to trips to his camp. He also cherished the time he was able to spend with his grandchildren – especially his great grandchildren.

Ed is survived by his children, Erica and Mike Oakes, Darman Terrance, and Kim and James Burns, all of Akwesasne; his grandchildren, Brian, Deanne, Devin, Jenna, Alaina, Lindsey, Jason, Stacey, Iorakote, Jimmy, Joe, Tiffany, and Tia; many great grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren; his brother, Kenneth Terrance; and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to his wife and parents, he was predeceased by a granddaughter, Ashley Gray on June 10, 2015; a great granddaughter, Kennlyn Rayne Oakes-Phillips on September 19, 2013; and his brothers, John "Jack", Raymond, Ronnie, and Dennis "Pat" Terrance.

At his request there will be no calling hours or funeral service. A celebration of life will be held at a time to be announced in the spring.

Memorial contributions may be made in his memory to the American Cancer Society.
