Clint is survived by his wife Shirley Terlson, son Scott Terlson (Darla Debert) grandchildren Garrett and Sienna, daughter Tara Christiansen (Tom), grandson Dalton. Brother-in-law Orville McGregor his children and partner Barb, Sisters-in-law Beverly Terlson and Irene Terlson. Clint was predeceased by his parents Gilbert and Margaret Terlson and siblings Beth, Bub, Bert, Don and Bill, Sister-in-law Sheila McGregor, Mother and Father-in-law June and Lester Gatzke. Clint was the youngest member of his family and was born on June 18, 1940 in the Swift Current Union Hospital. Clint spent his youth in Webb, SK where he attended the Webb and Gull Lake Schools. Clint enjoyed track and field and was quick to share stories of how fast he was and the records he held. In 1963 Clint found and married the love of his life Shirley Parker. In August 2018 they celebrated 55 years of marriage. Clint became a mechanic and worked at various locations, but most of his career was spent with Standard Motors as a Service Adviser and the Service Manager. He ended his working career at Home Hardware at a job he truly enjoyed. Clint was a natural leader and gave his time to the Elks Lodge #8 in Swift Current. He was constantly working to make the club better to donate back to the people of Swift Current. He held the position of Exalted Ruler many times. He was an active member of local AA Chapters and was still bowling three days a week into the fall of 2018. Clint's passion was cars, whether he was buying them and flipping them, fixing them or watching them on the oval track. He loved the stock car races and followed the stats. Clint also loved to work in the yard, making sure the grass and flowers where always just right. He helped out at many church activities and he and Shirley enjoyed dancing and were active members of the Swift Current Good Tyme Dance Club and took the opportunity to dance whenever they could. Finally Clint was a people person and remembered everyone that he met throughout his life, he always had a connection with every person. His sense of humour and wit were his signature and he maintained that until the day he passed away. Clint's wish was to have a private family funeral which was held on Friday, February 15, 2019 from the Chapel of First United Church with Reverend Annette Taylor officiating. Interment will take place at the Memory Gardens Cemetery. The family wishes that everyone celebrate his life by sharing a good story.
