Terry Slappy was born on December 28, 1957 in Montezuma, Macon County, Georgia to the late James Slappy Sr. and Louise Rice Slappy. He was preceded in death by one brother Jimmy Rice Grant. He was educated in the public school system of Macon County. He was a 1976 graduate of the Historic D.F. Douglas High School. Terry believed in working hard and providing for his family. He was employed with Blue Bird Body Company as a Sheet Metal Technician for 28 years. He was also employed with Trane Heat and Air Conditioning Manufacturing Company until he medically retired.
On October 28, 1983 two hearts became one when Terry and Linda Jackson was joined in holy matrimony. Their love was blessed and blossomed two generations of loving and caring for three children and four grandchildren.
His presence will be missed by all who know him. His words will forever echo in their hearts.
“My name is Terry Love, I tell no Lie, I’ll be a Capricorn until the day I die.”
“I’m every woman's fantasy and every man's nightmare.”
“I’m worth four hundred fifty million and I’m BROKE.”
“I rest my case.”
