On the morning of February 10,2021 Mr. Terry Robert Smith left this earthly world at the age of 65 surrounded by his loving family in his Watertown home. He was born in Trenton, Michigan to the late Robert Owen and Dimple June (Maynard) Smith on June 28,1955. Along with his parents he was preceded in death by a daughter Melanie Davis; great granddaughter Hazlee Grace Pulley; sisters Rhonda Smith, and Barbara Smith; and brothers Edwin Smith, Jeff Smith, and Dennis Smith. At the age of 17 Mr. Smith enlisted in the United States Marine Corp.
Mr. Smith enjoyed the simple, laid back life of time with family and making friends wherever he went. To say he had a heart of gold was an understatement. It did not matter what walk of life you were from he made it his mission to listen and become a friend you knew you could depend on. He enjoyed taking the family on fishing trips making memories of fun, laughter, and love. Terry loved heading out on a camping adventure to NACO or other campgrounds with the family in tow. He had a strong, loving bond to his K-9 companion Buster. When he was not camping or fishing, he spent his time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren, soaking in every moment he could with them. He lived his life to the fullest and taught his children to do the same.
Terry is survived by his wife Jean Smith; daughters Joy (Mike) Zimmermann, and Teri (Alan) Gilliland; a son Robert (Annie) Smith; grandchildren Allison Pulley, Daran Pulley, Aaron Davis, Kendall Landrum, Gage Landrum, Marianna Angel, Ashton Smith, Bryson Zimmermann, Savannah Barton, Austin Barton, Brittany Gilliland, and Christopher Gilliland; great grandchildren Myles Davis, Zeldon Davis, Mabry Pulley, Wellings Landrum, Embryn Landrum, and Dakota Freeman; and siblings Sandra (Dale) McCollough, and James Smith.
