Terry J. Winter, 71, passed onto eternal life on Saturday, August 21, 2021.
He was born December 7, 1949 to Chester and Doris (Luedke) Winter. On 7/7/07 he married Karen Schmidt. Terry worked for Marathon Mail Services and enjoyed driving his truck across country.
Terry enjoyed sports, building and renovating projects, and a good Hallmark Movie! He loved his family with all of his heart, and loved watching his children and grandchildren play sports. He even was good for a few pointers! He had a perfectionist personality, with a heart of gold in his jokes and phrases we all will miss. His curious mind and Christian values truly made him the loving man he was to his family and friends. May God Bless the memory of Terry Winter.
