TERRY LANE MANY FINGERS (Pa’ naotoo) passed away suddenly on January 7, 2021 in Claresholm, Alberta at the age of 26 years. Terry was born February 11, 1994 in Lethbridge, Alberta to Ivan and Verna (nee Creighton) Many Fingers.

Terry attended Cardston Elementary School, Hillspring Junior High, and Cardston High School.

At a young age, Terry grew a strong interest in vehicles, cattle and heavy equipment, often showing mom and dad pictures of what he was going to do and purchase. Terry had plans & dreams. In 2014, Terry was in an accident, even though his injuries were so severe he did not give up, he had ambition and he dealt with his hardships, as he had a brilliant future planned. Through Terry’s hard work and determination to become self sufficient in ranching and running heavy equipment, Terry was working on his plans and dreams to come true.

Terry was a kind, humble, very good hearted giving person, he had a big heart and caring nature who always welcomed you with a big smile. Terry’s bond with mom was strong, often sitting beside her telling secrets, laughing and making sure mom was okay. Mom always told Terry to be kind and help those in need. Terry listened to mom’s words and was often seen helping those in need; he was very passionate about the youth. Terry’s kind heart, smile, and sense of humor will forever be missed by all who knew him. Terry cared for and loved mom and dad so much.

He enjoyed our annual family trips and left us with many happy memories to look back on.
