Terry Strunk passed away in his sleep Friday, December 16th at Evergreen Hospice House after a 6 year battle with aggressive Prostate cancer. He peacefully left us while surrounded by the ones he loved most.

Terry was born in Vancouver, WA to Jerry and Janice Strunk. He attended Albany Union High School as well as South Albany High School and went on to get his welding and metal fabrication certificate through LBCC. He was hired on at DeWald Northwest where he worked for 35 years. However, if asked, he would tell you his most important job was being a devoted husband to his wife Bonnie and proud father to his daughter, Lacey, and son, Trevor. Terry married his bride, Bonnie, in 1981 and they enjoyed many happily married years together. They just celebrated their 36th wedding anniversary this last June.

A few things Terry loved: family time, his 5 grandchildren who all adored their ‘Papa T’, many years of pitching in City League softball games, camping, taking the boat out, watching a good football game, sitting by his wood stove, happily and obsessively washing and detailing all of his vehicles, his beloved dog Cole, sitting in his hot tub, hollering hello at his neighbors daily, country drives with his dog, blues music, a good IPA, and date nights with his wife.

Terry was a supportive and involved husband and father who made sure he said “I love You” every day. He was the bright spot in someone’s day and always genuinely happy to see you. He was a humble and non judgmental man who always looked for the good in people. We will miss him more than words can say.

Terry is preceded in death by father Jerry Lee Strunk and mother Janice JoAnn Strunk.

He is survived by his wife, Bonnie Strunk; siblings, Tony Strunk of Shelton, WA, Tylee Jo Williams of Pensacola, FL, Travis Strunk of Coeur d’ Alene, ID, and Tyler Strunk of Scio, OR; children, Lacey Hostetler and husband Brian of Shedd, OR, and Trevor Strunk and wife Jennifer of Albany; grandchildren, Addisyn and Tanner Strunk and Mason, Cameron, and Jayde Hostetler.

A memorial service will be held to honor and remember Terry at 3 p.m., Friday, December 29th, 2017, at Fisher Funeral Home in Albany, OR.
