Industry mourns passing of Terry Considine

The transport industry, particularly in Victoria, is mourning the loss of the respected CEO of Secon Freight Logistics, Terry Considine, who passed away last Friday following a heart attack.

Terry had a distinguished career in the transport industry, both through his involvement in the family company started by his father Maurie in 1989, and through his service within the Victorian Transport Association (VTA), where he was a member of the Executive Committee and chaired the Container Group for many years.

Terry was also a significant contributor to the VTA General Freight Committee – and he regarded those efforts as not only important to his own business, but also to his clients and the industry and community in general.

Terry is survived by his wife Patrice, their children Fiona, Peter and Joe, his parents Maurie and Maureen and his brothers Brendon, Vin, Paul and Matt.
Outside of Secon and his family, Terry had many interests and achievements including being a premiership coach of his local junior football team. The avid Hawthorn fan was a keen cyclist and also trekked to the Base Camp at Mt Everest.

The funeral for Terry is to be held on Thursday, 27 February, at 1 pm at Our Lady of the Assumption Church at 9 Centre Dandenong Road in Cheltenham, VIC. The Wake will follow at the Dingley International Hotel in Dingley. 

The Considine family is strongly aware that the service is likely to be a very large gathering, given the way in which Terry touched so many lives, professionally in the transport industry and in business, as well as personally through his football, cycling, church, family and other social involvement.

As a result, an additional special memorial service is now planned for Saturday, 1 March, commencing at 11 am at St. Leo the Great, 315 Mason Street, Altona North.

This memorial service will be another opportunity to celebrate Terry’s life, particularly in his professional life and as a dedicated contributor to issues at the industry level through such organisations as the VTA and others.
