Terrence George Moriarity
Gdsm. Terrence George Moriarity, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. W. Moriarity, 56 Ball Street, Paris, was killed in action in Germany on April 29, 1945, while fighting with the Canadian Armored Corps. He had enlisted with the Governor General's Foot Guards in 1943, and had gone overseas in December, 1944, and into action on the Continent in March, 1945. He was only 17 years of age when he enlisted and during the two years of his army career displayed the same fine qualities that made him such a popular and highly esteemed member of the Paris community. The end of the war was so nearly in sight at the time he gave his life for his country, that his loss seemed all the more grievous for his family and his wide circle of friends. He attended Sacred Heart Church in Paris, served it as an altar boy and had received his education at its parish school. Like most active boys, he was interested in the program the Boy Scouts offered and was fond of its outdoor activities. As he grew older he developed an interest in dancing and made a hobby of collecting jazz records. After his school days, he was employed at Penmans Limited and later, for a short time, at the Cockshutt Plow Company. Gdsm. Moriarity's family contributed two more sons to swell the strength of Canada's Army, Sgt. William, who served with the Essex Scottish Regiment and Kevin, who was with the R.C.A.F.
