Condolences for Terry Dee Rees

To the Rees family, we want to express our sincere condolences. Terry was great friend and a fierce competitor. When we boxed for his dad, Terry's left hook had more than one opponent flat on their backs and I have a permanent curve on my nose to prove it. He was a great friend, member of my wedding line, and mentor. From what I have read he helped to raise a great family.

Vangie and family, Sending you my condolences and sympathy. It is hard to lose a loved one at such a young age. I remember when you lived in Plain City and Terry was such a cute little boy. May you be comforted by good memories and the love he left in the form of your grandchildren. Karen

Thinking of you Cassie and the family. I remember staying at your dad's and serving at weddings. I'm so sorry to hear about his passing. Love you honey!
