Terry Whitty

June 25

Terry’s career was spent in the restaurant industry in Montréal and Ottawa where he established, owned and operated several franchise and independent restaurants. He began his military career at a very young age and he spent many years serving in the Canadian Grenadier Guards, where his heart remained. In 1966 Terry transferred to the Cadet Services of Canada (now known as the CIC), and thus began his long association with Cadets. The last 15 years he served as National Executive Director of the Army Cadet League of Canada in Ottawa. He believed passionately in the Royal Canadian Army Cadets’ work with youth across Canada.  Terry was a long-time member of the Organization of Military Museums of Canada through his connection with the Canadian Grenadier Guards Museum at Montreal.  He will be well remembered by OMMC members from coast to coast for his contributions at the annual courses.  He will be much missed.
