DEATH: ROBERT RIDGE ""TIGER"" TERRELL

Robert Ridge "Tiger" Terrell, age 79, died of cancer on Wednesday, August 16, 1995.

He was born in Salt Lake City on February 4, 1916 to Dr. W.G.B. and Elsie Ridge Terrell. He graduated from East High and the University of Utah where he was affiliated with publications and Beta Theta Pi fraternity. As a lieutenant in the Army in San Francisco he realized the Army and Navy needed a better relationship, and Ensign Meg Sweasy of Red Wing, Minnesota was the answer. Married in 1944 and celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary last year. With the F.H.A.; past vice president and real estate appraiser at Western Savings & Loan; past president of Salt Lake Chapter of Society of Residential Appraisers; Life Member of the Appraisal Institute; Elder of Wasatch Presbyterian Church; Fort Douglas Hidden Valley Club; past president of the Salt Lake Tennis Club-tennis being mighty important to the whole family-his backhand was pretty good!Survived by his wife, Meg; daughters, Kathy Jordan (Ken) of Carson City, Nev.; and Margie Parkins (Sam) of Boise, Idaho; Louie, the dog; granddaughters, Katie Parkins, Amanda Parkins, and Adrienne Jordan; and sisters, Mary Elizabeth Soderborg of Sun City, Arizona; and Elsie Cole of Winter Haven, Florida; son, Bill Terrell preceded him in death.

Memorial services will be held at Wasatch Presbyterian Church on Saturday, August 19, 1995 at 4 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Community Nursing Hospice because of Tina Pell, or Wasatch Presbyterian Church Memorial Fund.

His easy, off-beat humor, in person and in his writings, was loved and appreciated by his many friends and family...but not often by publishers. He hopes the other side will be as much fun as this side has been, and he surely hopes this will be published!
