Celebrating a record 66 years of marriage!

Former Mayor of Terrace Dave Maroney and wife Jean were married on Oct. 12th 1949 in St. Anthony Church in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

In 1952, the Maroneys decided to come west to Vancouver.

After living in Vancouver for about one year, they once again decided to pack up and this time they came north, saying it would only be for one year.

They arrived in Terrace in 1953.

Dave became involved in a company building the railroad between Terrace and Kitimat.

Later, Dave took a job with Skoglund Logging.

And from there, he decided to go into business for himself and bought Terrace Equipment, a business he had for years before closing it down.

Over the years in Terrace, the Maroneys have been involved in the community in different organizations.

Dave was involved in the staging and sponsoring of various logger sports competitions over the years in the area.

During 66 years of marriage, they raised six children: Michael, Gail, Cathy, Susan, Janice and Robert and now have 10 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Jean has been involved in her church and has been the one that keeps everyone in place, including Dave.

We are glad you stayed and have contributed in many ways in helping to make Terrace a better place to live.

Dave Maroney was first on council as an alderman in 1972, serving through until 1977.

He then became mayor in 1978, serving through in that position until 1981.
