Terry was born on Dec. 18, 1955, in Iowa City, Iowa, to John and Virginia Reed. He was raised in Minnesota with two brothers and a sister.
He joined the Army when he was 18 years old and was honorably discharged due to health issues.
While driving trucks for Black Hills Trucking, he met the love of his life Rhonda Davis in Douglas in 1979. They were married shortly thereafter on July 4, 1980. God blessed their union with four loving children. The family moved to LaBarge in 1989, where they made their home and raised their children.
Terry worked hard at many different jobs in the oilfield during his life but found his niche working as a measurement technician for Enterprise.
Terry loved to spend time with his family and friends. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, woodworking and barbequing.
Terry was active in his church and served on a mission trip to Haiti, where he helped build an orphanage.
He is preceded in death by his mother and father. He is survived by his loving wife Rhonda Reed, his sister Barbara, brothers, Danny, Larry and Tommy. He is also survived by his children, Christopher (Ashlea), DJ (Nicole), Matthew (Misty), Michelle (Daniel), along with his six granddaughters, five grandsons and many nephews, neices and great nephews and neices.
