Terry L. Ruf
Terry L. Ruf was surrounded by his loving family on October 8, 2019 at 10:30am as he passed peacefully from this life into the loving arms of our Lord.
Terry just turned 67 years old and lived 30 of those years on his farm in Montalba, Texas. Terry loved the outdoors.
Terry celebrated 45 years married to his best friend his wife Debbie Ruf. Camping in his travel trailer nicknamed Willie was his and wife Debbie's last wonderful adventures together. He is in heaven now and is saving a spot at the campfire for his best friend.
Terry was blessed by God with three beautiful daughters, Tanya Oestrick and husband Shane of Round Rock, TX, Amanda Pearce and husband Chad of Liberty Hill, TX, and Kristie Pearce and husband Brent of Mont Belvieu, TX.
The name he loved to be called was Papa. God's blessings showered him with seven amazing grandchildren, Trent Pearce, Taylor Pearce, Brooke Pearce, Alyssa Oestrick, Jake Oestrick, Karlee Pearce, and Amber Oestrick.
Terry grew up on his family farm on North Carpenter Road in Brunswick, Ohio. Terry was blessed to live his childhood next door to his grandma Myrtle Chapman Ruf. His favorite memory of grandma was a special candy she made him. Grandma I am sure has a big batch of candy waiting for him as he entered heaven. Terry is survived by his mother Grace Ruf and two sisters all of Brunswick, Ohio.
Terry worked for Comet School Supplies in Palestine, TX for many years as production supervisor. Terry is a retired officer from Texas Department of Criminal Justice Michael Unit in Tennessee Colony, TX.
Terry loved his country and was happy to serve six active and six reserve years at NAS Dallas in the United States Navy. His family is very proud of his service and will have him laid to rest at Central Texas Veterans Cemetery in Killeen, TX.
A visitation will be held on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at Herrington/Land of Memory Funeral Home from 1:00pm-3:00pm.
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18)
