"Our Papa"

Our gentle giant returned to his heavenly home, April 13th 2004 taking with him our broken hearts.

He was born May 17, 1962 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Dennis Wright and JoAnn Carter. Terry ran natural gas lines for the company he founded and owned, All Points Gas. He was good at what he did and made many friends. Terry had a wonderfully unique way of looking at life and an infectious sense of humor.

With Terry, goodness seemed to have no limits and there were no strangers along his path of life. Terry was an avid outdoorsman. He loved to fish and camp and loved competing in local truck pulls.

Terry leaves behind his soul mate and loving wife of 15 years, Gwen; his mother, JoAnn of Salt Lake City; father, Dennis and step-mother, Lucy Wright of Victor, Montana and eleven siblings, Todd, Destiny, Darcy, Sandra, Chris, Mikelean, Eugene, RaeDina, Trevor, Gina and Marlene; nine wonderful children, Colby, Candice and Tyson Wright, Catherine (Doug) Seivert, Michael (Rebecca) Lorenc, Brandi (Lamar) Wasden, Levi (Jamie) Lorenc, Jacob Lorenc and Zachary (Melissa) Lorenc. He also leaves behind nine and a half adoring grandchildren, Kyle, Cody, Spencer, Austin, Miranda, Logan, Jacob, Callie Magoo and baby Annika who will never forget him.

Go in peace Papa. You were loved. <! >
