About Terence Gerald Dowling's Life

Born in South Africa and emigrating to England in 1961, Terence completed his studies at the Royal College of Nursing specialising in operating theatre and psychiatric nursing, his long career culminating in the position of operating theatre manager.

Once retired he focused on rearranging his house at every opportunity, always eager to employ several self-taught skills. Teaching himself to play the piano, calligraphy and carpentry he was never without a hobby or imminent task, often volunteering unsuspecting guests. Frequent visitors never entered the same house twice.

At the centre of Terence’s life was his deep commitment to and love of the Catholic Church and Catholic Faith. It directed all that he did, and he remained faithful to the traditional and perennial expression of that Faith, without compromise, until the end, doing all that he could to ensure its propagation and continuance.

Meeting Terence was an experience that usually evolved into a lasting friendship that enriched the lives of everyone fortunate enough to enjoy his company.

He was an uncle, a mentor, an active member of the community, a kind neighbour and a dear and generous friend. His absence makes the world a quieter, less inviting place. A unique character that has left behind both fond memories and grieving hearts.
