Michael Dennis Terry (68) formerly of Virginia City, Montana, passed away in the early hours of December 5, 2021 with his loving wife and children by his side after a courageous battle with cancer. Michael was born July 31, 1953 in Phoenix, Arizona, to Jack Monroe Terry and Iva Irene “Dee” Winn and was the youngest of their four children.
Growing up, his family moved often and he developed an enduring love for the landscape of the American West and cowboy culture. Michael loved the vivid hues and stark landscapes of the desert as equally as he loved the majesty and wildness of Montana. He was a cowboy, a miner, a patriot, an avid hunter, and a poet. He spent his life pursuing greatness with a style unique to him, and an excitement for life that touched us all. Michael Terry will be missed by many.
Michael is survived by his wife, Evone Justice, married December 13, 1973; their children: Sarah (Kim Wilson) Terry, James Terry, Jacob (Brandi) Terry, Amanda (Travis) Bee, Bonny Terry; grandchildren: Jasmine, Sierra and Marcus Wilson and Santina Caligiuri; Melissa and Ashley Terry; Riley, Crew, Beck, and Reese Terry; Vivian, Luca and Rose Bee; Nathan Shakespeare and Noah Bundren; siblings: Jeanette “Sissy” (Frank) Terry-Russo, Benjamin L. (Joann) Terry.
He is preceded in death by his parents; brother, James “Sonny” Terry; grandson, Chance Wilson; and many extended family members.
