DAVENPORT — Terry A. Sperry, 60, of Davenport, passed away peacefully on Friday, March 8, 2013, at the A.O. Fox Memorial Hospital, surrounded by his loving family.

Terry was born on July 12, 1952, in Oneonta, the son of the late Ernest D. and Kathleen (Montgomery) Sperry.

On Oct. 8, 1971, he married Linda Bakker in Oneonta.

Terry was a graduate of Charlotte Valley High School in 1971. He was employed by SUNY Oneonta as a groundskeeper for over 29 years.

Some of Terry’s favorite hobbies included field trailing and water racing his coon hounds and hunting, but what he loved the most was any opportunity to spend time with his children and his grandkids. He was very devoted to his family and would do anything for them.

Terry is survived by his wife of 41 years, Linda Sperry; his two sons, Dustin (Kimberly) Sperry and Daniel (Patty) Sperry; his beloved dog, Pancake; and his grandchildren, Olivia, Nolan, Samantha, and Rebecca Sperry. He is also survived by his sisters, Mildred “Milly” Sperry and Penny Whitmore; his nephews, Wayne Sperry, Steve Sperry, and Charlie Whitmore; and his niece, Tammy Whitmore.

Terry was predeceased by his brother, Ernie Sperry.

In keeping with Terry’s wishes, there will be no public calling hours or funeral service.
