Terry Lee Caniford

Terry Lee Caniford, age 67, passed away on Saturday, December 12, 2020, at his home in Bristow, Virginia.

He was born on June 12, 1953 in Winchester, Virginia to the late William Lee Caniford, Jr. and Mary Lou (Gardner) Caniford.

Terry loved his wife Cathy, his son John, and daughter-in-law Tracy more than life.  Cathy was his soul mate for over 40 years.

He was always willing to lend a helpful hand to anyone that reached out. He truly loved helping people and was always happy and positive no matter what happened in life.  There was no problem that he could not solve.  If there was no solution to a problem, he made one. He always told his family “there are two words that aren’t in our vocabulary: Can’t and Quit”.  He would never give up, no matter the odds and always said “cream rises to the top”.

He was an incredible commercial real estate professional whose level of professionalism made him an icon in the industry. He had a true passion for real estate.

He loved antiquing, horse racing, playing tennis, and most of all his family and friends.  He was the happiest when he was entertaining loved ones and he could always take you down memory lane. Another passion was baseball as he coached baseball for over 30 years and shaped the youth of so many players, all who were impacted by Terry’s discipline on and off the field.  In true fashion, Terry never let us forget that he was the most winning coach at GMBL (Greater Manassas Baseball League).

He loved watching his favorite TV Show, Dallas, with his hero being JR Ewing. You could always find him singing and listening to the Beach Boys, Elvis, and the Beatles.

The family will receive friends and family on Monday, December 21, 2020 from 1:00 p.m. where service will begin at 2:00 p.m. at the Love Church, 11234 Balls Ford Road, Manassas, Virginia with Pastor Tony Lutyk officiating.  Entombment will take place on Tuesday, December 22, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. at Stonewall Memory Gardens, Manassas, Virginia.
