Terry McIntyre Obituary

Terry received an Associate degree from Louisiana Technical College. He worked for a plethora of years for the City of Spartanburg.

Terry loved life and lived it to the fullest. In his spare time, he enjoyed fishing and riding motorcycles. One of his greatest joys was spoiling and spending time with his grandchildren. He is noted as being the best grandfather ever. Terry also would go to local nursing homes and minister to the residents by holding bible studies. He was a man of little words, but when he did speak, he would speak volumes. He was always a peacemaker in any situation. Terry loved God, church and his family.
