Terry Thompson, 85

Terry Thompson, 85, of Lake Geneva, Wis., Florida, and Woodstock, Ill., passed away Aug. 7, 2019.
He was born May 5, 1934, to Loren and Helen Thompson of Woodstock. For 50 years, Terry was an owner-operator in trucking, most of which was “over the road” between Illinois and California.
Terry was a skilled fabricator and built his own masterful rigs (Terrybilt). To the very end he continued his skills in the world of rat rods and truck shows.
He was married 64 years (and 10 hours) to his lovely bride, Carol (Stilling) Thompson. They had three children, Douglas (preceded in death), Brian of Laporte, Colo., and Lisa (Giuseppe Gaias) of Las Vegas, Nev. He had four grandchildren, Kristi (Jason Robarge) and Matt (Tracy) Thompson of Colorado and Jami (fiancé Cody Sauber) and Erica Thompson of Illinois.
Burial will be at Greenwood Cemetery Saturday, Aug. 17, at 11 a.m.
