Timothy Ray Terry

July 30, 1957 — June 1, 2022


It is with great sadness that the family of Timothy Terry Sr. announce his passing on June 1st, 2022.  He was surrounded by the love of his family with his wife Tracy by his side.

Tim was born July 30, 1957 in Paw Paw, Michigan, to Calvin Terry and Burnice (Terry) Fytczyk.  He leaves behind his devoted wife, Tracy (Keenan) Terry, three sons - Timothy (Ronnie) Terry Jr., Daniel Terry and Jacob (Jessica) Terry, grandson Aaron Cole Terry, who was the light of his life.  His sister Kathy Gardner and brothers Tony Terry, Doug (Patty) Terry and Dewayne Terry, his father Calvin Terry, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. Tim had so very many friends.  He was "pops" or "dad" to all the kids who came into his home.  Tim had one very special nephew that was more of a son to him than a nephew, Nicholas (Jennafer) Keenan.

Tim was preceded in death by his daughter, Kelsey Erin Terry, his mother Burnice Fytczyk, step father Stanley Fytczk, his grandparents, his uncle Tom Terry, and many other relatives.

Tim was a man who cherished family, God, and music.  His favorite times were spent at family get together's, bonfires, and playing and singing all together in a circle.

The circle has been broken and will only be fixed again in heaven.  Will the circle be unbroken, by and by, Lord by and by?  There's a better home awaiting, in the sky, Lord, in the sky.

Family and friends will visit Monday, June 6, 2022 beginning at 12:00 p.m. at Freshwater Community Church, 600 East Michigan Ave., Paw Paw. Funeral services will begin at 1:00 p.m. with Pastor Troy Gentz officiating. Tim will be laid to rest at Wildey Cemetery, Paw Paw.
