Terry Joe Dunn, 62, of Meridian, passed away November 16 , 2021 after a short illness.
Terry was born in Hawaii on July 31 , 1959 to Kenney & Barbara (Lewis) Dunn. When Terry was younger his family moved around a lot with his dad’s career in the U.S. Navy, giving him the opportunity to live in exciting places such as Japan and Alaska, until his family settled in Kellogg, Idaho after his dads retirement. Terry graduated from Kellogg High School in 1977, North Idaho College in 1979 and joined the U.S. Navy in 1982, spending 6 years traveling to many ports of calls, including Spain, Germany and the Holy Lands.
On May 21 , 1983 Terry married his best friend, Susan (White) at the American Lutheran Church in Kellogg. Terry is survived by his wife of 38 years; his children, Byron (Amanda), Brianna and Cameron Dunn; grandchildren Isaiah, Hailey, Brody and Abigail Dunn; parents Kenney & Barbara Dunn; brother Mark (Barb) Dunn; sister Rhonnie (Tony) Mitchem and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
After Terry’s service with the U.S. Navy, he and the family moved to Boise where Terry was employed with Micron Technology for 25 years as an Electronic Technician. In 2015 he went to work for ON Semiconductor in Nampa, where he became a valuable team member and truly enjoyed his job and the people he worked with.
Terry loved everything about the outdoors and was at his happiest when hunting or fishing with his kids and taking adventurous rides in the mountains with his family in their UTV’S. When his kids were younger you could always find him on the sports field coaching or umpiring at his boy’s games or cheering on his daughter as she played soccer.
Terry accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior later in his life and we rejoice in the knowledge of where he is spending eternity. His son, Cameron, summed it up perfectly when he described his dad as a Servant. He was always willing to help others out. He will be deeply missed by all who had the opportunity to know him.
