Obituary

Terry James Otto (T.O.), 78, of Swift Current, Saskatchewan, passed away on November 2, 2022, due to Myelodysplastic Syndrome and other complications.

A burial service will be held at Mount Pleasant Burial Park at 2:00 pm on Tuesday, November 29, 2022, Section 6, Block 308.

Terry was born in Melville, SK, on November 13, 1943. As a young boy, he moved to Cabri, SK, with his mother and brother and attended Cabri School until the end of grade 6. He was an exceptional hockey player and played for the Cabri Bulldogs. 

Terry went to the Saskatchewan Technical Institute in Moose Jaw, SK, became a Journeyman Mechanic, and worked for International Harvest in Regina, SK. He returned to Cabri and worked at Francana Minerals for a time before starting his backhoe loader business in about 1972. Terry was the owner-operator of Terry’s Trenching for 45 years and could operate the hell out of a backhoe. He enjoyed playing hockey, watching sports, fishing and scuba diving.

Terry is survived by his son, Kevin Otto and his nieces Sherry Koftinoff (Christoforatos) and Michelle Takushi (Christoforatos), step-nieces and nephews, along with friends.

Terry is preceded in death by his father Mr. Christoforatos, step-father Nels Petersen, brother Michael Christoforatos, step-brother Clifford Petersen, mother Audrey Petersen, uncle and aunt Phil and Sheila Walt, daughter Kelly Otto, and other relatives and friends.
