Terry Shearn Obituary, Death Cause – It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness that we share the devastating news of the unexpected passing of Terry Shearn, the visionary founder of “Adventure Calls.” Terry’s passion for the outdoors, his love for paddling, and his pioneering spirit brought the exhilarating sport of whitewater rafting to Western NY in 1981. Terry’s legacy began with a vision, and it was his unwavering determination that set the course for countless adventures and unforgettable experiences. In 1983.
Just two years after introducing whitewater rafting to the region, he embarked on the journey of professionally guided raft trips through the majestic gorge at Letchworth State Park. Little did he know that this vision would touch the lives of hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world. As we reflect on Terry’s life, we remember him not only as a trailblazer but as a passionate outdoorsman and paddler who lived his dream to the fullest. He led by example, showing all of us the beauty and excitement that nature has to offer.
Terry, with our paddles raised high, we salute you for your vision, your dedication, and your indomitable spirit. Your legacy will continue to inspire generations of adventure seekers to come. Your memory will forever live on in the roaring rivers and scenic landscapes you shared with us all. We extend our deepest condolences to Terry’s family and friends during this time of profound loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as we remember and celebrate the remarkable life of Terry Shearn.
