(Feb. 7, 1947 - Oct. 24, 2017)
Terry Bruce Newman, 70, passed away on Oct. 24, 2017, at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Billings, Montana, surrounded by his loving family.
He was born in Casper on Feb. 7, 1947, to Leo and Marjorie Newman. Terry attended schools in Casper, graduating in 1965 from Natrona County High School. While in high school, he met and married Glenna Maddox, and they had 53 wonderful years together.
Terry enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in Frankfurt, Germany, at the 97th General Hospital during the Vietnam War.
After his service, he and Glenna returned to Casper, where they started their family and he began his 32-year career with Pacific Power and Light.
In 1978, the family moved outside of Glenrock, Wyoming, where they raised their girls and enjoyed country life. Terry was an active participant in his children’s lives, whether it be cheering them on in all of their sporting and school endeavors or while coaching the AAU Falcons Track Club, even if it meant driving the bus load of youngsters to the races. He played slow pitch with a passion, skied with abandon and had fishing and hunting adventures with his friends. He helped his community by serving on the local recreation board.
After retirement from his career with PacifCorp, he and Glenna moved from Glenrock to Powell, Wyoming, and began spending winters at their home in St. George, Utah, where he loved to play golf, hike and enjoy good times with friends.
Terry was truly devoted to his family, especially his four grandchildren and his new great-grandson. He took pride in helping with any and all projects. His love, caring and kindness will be greatly missed by his wife Glenna of Powell; daughters Ashley (Troy) Hildebrand of Powell, Kerri (Brian) Young of West Linn, Oregon; his grandson Michael (Katie) Hildebrand of Billings; his granddaughter Alyssa (Channing) Wagner of South Heart, North Dakota; grandsons Cole and Noah Young of West Linn, Oregon; and great-grandson Max Hildebrand of Billings. Also surviving are his sisters Arlene (Mickie) Fischer, Debra (Jim) Campbell and brother Brett (Cherri) Newman, all of Casper, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Terry was preceded in death by his parents and brother Richard Newman.
Services will be held at the Oregon Trail State Veterans Cemetery in Evansville on Friday, Nov. 3, 2017, at 2 p.m.
