After a short battle with cancer, veteran broadcaster Terry Moore passed away at age 82 this afternoon in Victoria, BC.

From Ted Smith: I regret to advise you that our Pal Terry passed this afternoon at 2:30.... the time of his choosing... surrounded by his loving family. In typical Terry style and in a weak voice he led everyone in singing "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow"...

Terry’s long career in Broadcasting spans 7 decades beginning at CKUA in Edmonton in 1956. Now at the young age of 82 he was still heard regularly on CFAX 1070 in Victoria until recently.

Worked with, and opposite Terry several times over the years... attended many parties where Terry would spontaneously break into operatic song at the drop of a hat... Love the way he chose to go... "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow"... indeed. RIP Mr. Moore.

I always enjoyed interacting with Terry Moore. Some years back - between gigs - I was booking Terry's show when he was broadcasting from a downtown hotel. Terry was always in control and while he could be a bit on the demanding side; was always the first to congratulate you when you scored him a great guest - and we did many. I'll never forget his open phones and household hints. No one was better as 'winging it' on talk radio than Terry Moore. RIP friend!

A huge part of the Vancouver Market for many years.

Multi talented.

Losing too many people.

I echo the sentiments above and would like to add that Terry may be gone but will live on in the hearts and minds of those left behind.
Rest peacefully, Terry.

A gentleman and, always, an erudite talk host.

I remember when Terry was cut loose from the Vancouver market. A caller asked Rafe Mair "what will happen?" to Terry. Rafe, as I recall, said words to the effect that "Like a lot of us, Terry is much closer to the end of his career than the beginning."

Within a few years, Rafe was (unfairly) gone from the airwaves. But Terry had tweaked an old adage into "go west not-so-young man." And had many years in Victoria on C-FAX, even popping up as a substitute after his full time days were done.

Godspeed, Terry Moore.
