AKWESASNE – Edward Roger Terrance, 83, of 427 Cook Road, peacefully passed away in his sleep early Saturday morning, January 12, 2018 in the comfort of his home.

Ed was born in Akwesasne on August 23, 1935, the son of the son of the late John P. and Rose M. (Sawatis) Terrance. On April 26, 1958, he married Ann Arquette at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Rochester, she predeceased him on June 23, 2015.

Ed was an ironworker with Local 33 in Rochester for over 30 years until his retirement. He was a die-hard Syracuse University fan and enjoyed riding his pontoon boat, especially to trips to his camp. Ed greatly enjoyed watching his daughter, Kim play softball and could be found enjoying pull tabs. He also cherished the time he was able to spend with his grandchildren – especially his great grandchildren.

Ed is survived by his children, Erica and Mike Oakes, Darman Terrance, and Kim and James Burns, all of Akwesasne; his grandchildren, Brian, Deanne, Devin, Jenna, Alaina, Lindsey, Jason, Stacey, Iorakote, Jimmy, Joe, Tiffany, and Tia; many great grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren; his brother, Kenneth Terrance; and many nieces and nephews.
