Terry Lyndon Marshall


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a beloved husband, father, and friend, Terry Lyndon Marshall. Born on July 23, 1944, to Glenn Marshall and Mary Eliza Long, Terry entered this world as a beacon of light. He departed this world on May 4, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of love, laughter, and a lifetime of cherished memories.

A true renaissance man, Terry wore many hats throughout his life and could figure out how to do anything. Terry served his country with honor and distinction, dedicating six years of his life to the National Guard from 1965 to 1971 as a Military Police officer. As a loyal employee, he served as the Quality Control Director at Curtis Packing Company for 33 years before retiring to work for Penske. He approached everything in his life with passion, excellence, and dedication. 

Terry's greatest achievement, however, was his role as a devoted husband to Linda Carol Davis and loving father of four. Terry and Linda were married on February 8, 1969, and sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake City LDS temple on June 1, 1971, embarking on a journey of love and companionship that lasted a lifetime. His love for Linda was boundless. Their commitment to each other and their faith created a foundation of love and strength to raise their four beautiful children – Wendy, Gina, Owen, and Craig. His guidance and support shaped his family into the remarkable individuals they are today. He leaves behind a profound impact on the hearts and minds of those who had the honor of calling him Husband and Daddy.

As a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Terry's faith played a central role in his life. His commitment to his beliefs was evident in the way he lived his life with compassion, integrity, and a steadfast dedication to serving others. His unwavering testimony of our Savior, Jesus Christ, His role, and His gospel will continue to be a source of strength and guidance for his family. We believe that families are forever, and we will be together again.

Terry had an undying love for baseball and basketball. He was so proud of leading his team to victory at the 1962 State Championship in basketball at Colfax High School. His heartbeat in tune with the rhythm of the UNC basketball team. A passionate fan, he reveled in the victories, endured the defeats, and celebrated the camaraderie that comes with being part of the Tar Heel family. His enthusiasm for UNC basketball was infectious, bringing joy to countless gatherings and making memories that will forever be cherished by those who shared in his love for the game. Beyond his professional pursuits, sports achievements, and military service, Terry was an avid fisherman and gardener, spending countless hours pursuing his passions and sharing them with those around him. Whether it was camping or boating on Philpott Lake, he approached each endeavor with an infectious enthusiasm that left a lasting impression on everyone lucky enough to join him on the journey.

Terry is preceded in death by his father, Glenn, his mother, Mary, and his brothers Barney, Reavis (Pete), and Dan, along with their wives Mary, Elsie, and Lucille. Terry is survived by his eternal companion, Linda, and their four children, Wendy (Anthony), Gina (Scott), Owen (Haylee), Craig (Heidi), and sixteen grandchildren who love him very much: Kylie, Callan, Dallin, Brennen, Miriam, Corbin, Daniel, Ethan, Liesl, Linlee, Blaine, Liza, Caroline, Dean, Maggie, and Nellie who will continue to carry his legacy forward with the same grace, love, and determination that he exemplified throughout his life.

A viewing will be held at Hayworth-Miller in Kernersville on Thursday, May 9 from 5-7pm. A celebration of Terry's life will be held on Friday, May 10 at 3pm at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 8934 W. Market Street in Colfax. May Terry’s spirit live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved him, and may his memory be a source of comfort and inspiration in the days ahead.
