Terry Wayne Terrel was born May 8, 1948 in Chandler to John Terrel and Rose Marie (Grosz). He passed away October 17, 2020 in Shawnee at the age of 72.
Terry grew up in Chandler and spent much of his time with his grandparents, Henry and Myrtle Cheatham, on their farm. Following his father’s death, he lived on the farm with his grandparents. Terry married Donna Bone and they raised two children together while also raising his two younger sisters. In 1983, Terry married Paula (Davis) and they raised four children together.
He enjoyed fishing, noodling, hunting and his family. Terry was a mechanic and farmer who ran one of the best greenhouses in Lincoln County.
