It is with great sadness that Scuba Travel Ventures announces the passing of Terri Dold, long time travel agent in the dive industry, friend to all and mentor to many. Terri and her husband Gene, formerly owners of Aqua Dreams Travel, joined Scuba Travel Ventures in July 2008. She will be greatly missed. Terri passed most unexpectedly, shortly after five p.m. Monday April 11th, 2011 after suffering a cerebral aneurysm on Sunday morning from which she was unable to recover.

Terri, born in Fontana California, defined the term “A lust for life”. She had literally traveled the world as a professional in the travel industry and as an avid diver. Terri and her husband Gene, well known in the dive industry, have been selling dive travel since 1994.

A love for adventure and a spirit of fun abounded in her. That spirit recently manifested in a love of motorcycle riding. Terri would literally never be satisfied with “taking a back seat” so, in a fashion that typified her, she sought the proper training and graduated from “scooters ” to larger and more powerful motorcycles.

A Memorial Service for Terri will be held Tuesday April 26th at 3:00 at the Pavilion (nearest the beach) at the Cape Coral Yacht Club. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that contributions be sent to The Terri Dold Memorial, care of The Caloosa Dive Club, PO Box 152940 Cape Coral Fl, 33915.

Our hearts go out to Gene Dold and his family.
