Terry was born in Wetonka, South Dakota, to Everett and Lorraine (Wilson) Boyle on July 25, 1946. He married Gail Broadbent and they had two daughters, Lori and Paula. In 1991, Terry found his lifelong companion in Nancy and together they raised Nancy’s three children, Tara, Jaymar, and Erica.
After working more than twenty-five years as a machinist at Hub City, Terry started his own machine shop and spent the rest of his career working outside operating construction equipment. The only thing he loved more than his motor grader was spending time with his grandchildren. Terry had seven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren and loved watching baseball games with them, teaching them to drive the Bobcat, and dragging them to early-morning breakfast at the Airport.
Terry loved Irish whiskey, playing pinochle with friends, and riding his Harley. He had a wealth of knowledge that he loved to showcase through trivia and storytelling. Terry will always be remembered for his giving heart and willingness to be of service to others.
He is survived by his wife, Nancy Adams; stepmother, Joanne Boyle; sister, Connie (Jack) Waltman; brother, Kim (Diane) Boyle; sister, Michele (Brian) Fricke; sister, Ginny (Tim) Clark; brother, Ryan Boyle; children: Lori Baldwin, Paula Boyle, Tara Boechler, Jaymar (Jenna) Adams, and Erica Adams; seven grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his parents and nephew, Mike Waltman.
