William E. Terry Jr. went to see his savior on July 25, 2014, after a short battle with cancer. He is survived by his son, Richard E. Terry and wife, Mary, and daughter, Janie Terry McLeod and husband Cliff. Bill is preceded in death by wife, Dean Terry, and son, Ronald Dean Terry. Bill had four grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. He served in the Navy, was a member at Gateway Baptist Church, and past board member for the Denton Senior Advisory Council at the Denton Senior Center. Interment will be at Laurel Land Cemetery beside the love of his life, Dean, his wife of over fifty years. Memorial service arrangements are pending.
In preference to flowers, the family requests donations sent to Denton Senior Center or to Gateway Baptist Church.
The family wishes to express a sincere appreciation to his friends and the staff at the Denton Senior Center who were like a second family to him, and to the nurses and staff at Vitas Hospice Care who treated him with dignity.
