Terry was born in Oakdale, CA and passed away peacefully in Hughson at the Hospice House. He went all through school in Oakdale until joining the Air Force where he served his county for eight years. He moved back to Oakdale working for Hogan Manufacturing in Escalon, FMC, and Brown Sheet Metal. Terry was very creative making beautiful wrought iron pieces such as iron gates and spiral staircases. Terry had a wonderful sense of humor. He dearly loved to fish and finally caught a 38lb salmon called Big Moe, which he would talk about to anyone who would listen.
Terry leaves behind his loving wife Judy of 38 years; his brother, Mike (Linda); and sister, Judy of New York. He also leaves his daughter, Lisa and step-son Rich Striplen (Rae); four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Tommy and Annie Reiff; and his son, Mark.
Terry will be forever missed by those who loved him. There will be a private celebration of life at a future date.
