Celebration of Life for Rex Terpening
Rex Terpening

Harold Rex Terpening passed away on July 15, 2018, at the age of 104 and was a true Pioneer in aviation. Born July 23, 1913, he began an interesting and rewarding career in aviation at a young age in Fort McMurray, AB. During his career, he travelled widely and was deeply involved in the development of aviation in the Canadian North. After retiring from CP Air in 1978, Rex and his wife Trudie spent many summers at the cabin on Tagish Lake in the Yukon. He authored a well-received book, Bent Props and Blow Pots which recounted many of his experiences during the early years of Canadian aviation.

Rex was rewarded with a number of honours including induction into Canada’s Aviation Hall of Fame, and recently had a building named after him in Fort McMurray. 

A Celebration of Rex’s Life will be held on Saturday, August 25, 2018, at
Eagle Quest Golf Club. (East Room)
7778 - 152nd St., Surrey, B.C.
from 1:00 to 4:00.
