Terry was born December 7, 1941 in Sacramento, CA to George and Delores Mayberry. Much of his youth was spent in the Texas Hill Country with his maternal grandparents, Everett and Beth Whitley. He attended school for several years in Victoria, Texas before moving to Arkansas where he graduated. Shortly after which, he began his 29 year military career. This military training provided the foundation for his work at The South Texas Nuclear Plant, consulting work for Draeger Safety, and finally his endeavor as a gift shop proprietor. Terry met his wife, Nickie, during the time he was employed at The South Texas Nuclear Plant. They married and established their home in Port Lavaca. There he found his faith in his Lord and began his active work in the Lord's church. He always said she saved his soul. The dreaded cancer led them to downsize and move to Nicki's former home, Madisonville, TX. Hoping to enjoy small town living together for many years, but it was not to be. Terry was preceded in death by his dad, George Auston Mayberry; daughter, Kelly Cothran; and sister, Helen Miles. Survivors include his wife, Nickie of Madisonville; mother, Delores Caswell; 3 children, Lara Weigle and husband, Mike, Dan Mayberry and wife, Amanda, and Kim Rinehart and husband, Mike; 5 grandchildren, 1 expected that he will never have a chance to meet and 2 great grandchildren. Terry was also blessed to have an extended family which he only me a few years ago, 3 half brothers, Auston, Michael and Tyler; 2 half sisters, Jody and Peggy; and 2 step sisters, Denise and Debbie. In addition to all this family, he was delighted to be step dad to Nicki's 3 children, Stephanie Byrd, Darren Cosby and Sheryl Buehring; and Ggrandberry to her 9 grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter. As is obvious, family played a hope role in Terry's life. He's in heaven now waiting for his family to join him.
