Terry Lawrence Napora

April 14, 1960 - June 24, 2015


It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden loss of Terry Napora on June 24, 2015. While our hearts are still reeling from this tragic loss we want to honor the legacy, the heart and the spirit of Terry. He championed the cause of the underdog, loved big and small challenges, was passionate about his work and the people he served and fearless in his defense of his clients. Terry was born in Vancouver. He was a passionate Rotarian and believed strongly in giving back to his community through acts of service. His family and friends will remember his relaxed nature, his permanent smile and how much value and priority he placed on his personal and business relationships. He is survived by his wife Abby Napora, his daughters Larissa, Kharri, Amber, Shannon, his beloved dog Kai and his mom Gladys Napora, brother David and family. He is predeceased by his father Larry Napora and daughter Justine. A public visitation for Terry will be held at Thompson Funeral Service on Friday June 3rd, 2015 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. His “graduation” service will be held on Saturday, July 4th, 2015 at 11am at the Civic Theatre. A reception will follow at the Hume Room (Hume Hotel). Please consider parking at the Nelson Parkade because of construction. In memory of Terry, donations may be made to Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen, Kootenay Christian Fellowship, 520 Falls Street, Nelson, BC, V1L 6B5, or the Nelson CARES Society, 521 Vernon Street Nelson BC, V1L 4E9. Bill Clark of Thompson Funeral Service, Nelson is entrusted with the cremation arrangements.

My heart breaks at the news of the loss of my friend Terry. We had so much fun together here in Ontario where he started his legal career and I drove with him across Canada night and day when he moved back to his home in British Columbia. He later brought you Abby to see us and we laughed continuously over old memories and made new ones. My deepest condolences to all of you. Treasure the memories.

I have known Terry for many years as a friend and fellow lawyer. He fought hard but fairly for his clients. He will be greatly missed for his insights and sense of humour. I only met Abby once but quickly saw how well suited they were. We are all devastated by this untimely loss. Sincere condolences.
