Terry was born April 26, 1959 in Benton Harbor to David and Linda (Goldner) Sillaway.

He lived a very full and happy life for the short time he had been with us.

He was multi faceted, good at anything he put his mind to, holding many job titles throughout his life.

Terry acquired his G.E.D. and joined the Navy, from which he was honorably discharged.

He also worked as a store clerk, did factory work, and worked offshore for an oil company.

Construction work and maintaining his home and rental units became his priority for the majority of his life. He took pride in his many accomplishments.

Besides being a hard worker Terry enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting, restoring classic cars, woodworking, and gardening.

He loved to travel and meet people.

As a people person, even out camping, someone would come by and holler "Hey Terry".

He truly enjoyed spending time with his family, friends, and especially his grandchildren.

He was like a big kid himself when the grandchildren were with him.

To those who knew and loved him, remember he left you a piece of his heart; from the Taurus in the sky.

Terry is survived by his son David (Kaylie Deming) Sillaway of Coloma; his mother Linda (Frank) Smith Sr. of Watervliet; brothers Leon (Cheryl) Smith of Watervliet, Frank (Jen) Smith Jr. of Benton Harbor, Greg and Christopher Sillaway of Florida; his companion of 26 years Renee Webb of Coloma along with her two daughters, Angela (Ralph) Moore of Georgia and Krystal (Josh) Criswell of Ind.

Also surviving are seven grandchildren; Dayton Sillaway of Coloma, Thomas Stone of Dowagiac, Niya Alexander of Flint, Jazmun and Jesse Hauck along with Brooke and Hunter Hewson of Ind. along with many cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews from Terry's extended family.

Terry was preceded in death by his father David E. Sillaway, a brother Jeff Sillaway, and multiple cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, great grandparents, as well as many of his best friends.
