Terry Ray Brandeberry
Terry Ray Brandeberry, 70, of Fostoria, passed away at his home.
He was born January 17, 1947 in Fostoria to the late Ray A. and A. Yvonne “Bonnie” (Damon) Brandeberry.
Surviving is a brother, Jon (Lou Ann) Brandeberry, Fostoria; sister, Nikki Jo (Charles) Kimbel, Goodyear, AZ; children, Lucas Ray Clarkson, Laos, Brad L. Baeder, Fostoria and Brian L. (Krystal) Baeder, Fostoria; five grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
Terry was a 1965 graduate of Fostoria High School. He served in the US Army from 1969-1971 and was stationed in Korea. He retired from the former Excello (Airfoil Textron), Fostoria after 29 ½ years of service and then continued his career with Atlas Crankshaft, Fostoria.
Terry was an avid reader of science fiction and philosophy and counted Isaac Asimov as one of his many favorite authors. He found great joy and amusement when talking and interacting with children, and he always had cookies, candies, and juice ready when sons and nephews came to visit. Terry loved music and had an extensive record and CD collection that included artists such as Bob Dylan, the Guess Who, and Neil Young. Through the years, he remained an unwavering fan of the Detroit Tigers, although he did have a soft spot for the Cleveland Indians and cheered for them with gusto whenever they made the playoffs. Terry was also known for his skills on the grill and stove and probably would have succeeded as a restaurateur in his day. Above all, Terry will be remembered as one of the Good Guys, a man who fought privately for truth, reason, and peace in his world.
