Terry L. Acton, born April 18, 1943 to Ivan and Maxine Acton, passed away February 13, 2021.  He is survived by Karen Acton, his wife of 39 years.

During retirement, Terry very much enjoyed camping and fishing as often as possible.  His greatest joy was babysitting and caring for his special great-grandchildren, Tilten and Tinley during their preschool years.

Summers were also a special time, with Terry working on his garden and having Cody help mow the lawn every weekend.
