Obituary of Terry Lee Wilson

Please share a memory of Terry to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Terry Lee Wilson, loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, and best friend, went to Heaven on October 20, 2021. Terry was born March 16, 1949, to Gerald and Elizabeth Wilson in Ontario, Oregon. He was the youngest of six. He married Patty Williams on January 22, 1972. She was the love of his life, and there wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do for her. They had two loving, precious children, Mindy and Rob. Words cannot do justice to the wonderful, gifted, and hardworking person Terry was. He worked hard to provide his family with everything they needed and a home customized to fit their needs. There was nothing he could not repair or restore to new. He loved tinkering with his hands and woodworking. His greatest joy in life was attending his children’s and grandchildren’s functions—most recently, following his grandson’s baseball team, the Meridian Express Mustangs, which he supported wholeheartedly. He was a very generous, compassionate person, helping anyone he could along the way. These qualities of his live on in his children and grandchildren. He attended Union School, Bickel Elementary, and O’Leary Junior High and graduated from Twin Falls High School in 1967.Terry Lee Wilson, loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, and best friend, went to Heaven on October 20, 2021.
