John Paul Terry, 62, of Middlebury


MIDDLEBURY — John Paul Terry, 62, of Middlebury, Vt., passed away unexpectedly on Feb. 6, 2024.

John was born on Aug. 10, 1961, in Glens Falls, N.Y., to Thomas A. Terry and Gloria J. (LaMotte) Terry. He grew up in Granville and Hartford, N.Y. He graduated from Hartford Central School in Hartford, N.Y., and went on to join the Unites States Army and become a water treatment specialist.

John loved the simple things in life — he loved to drive his truck on the backroad, a fresh can of Skoal, and some good tunes on the radio. John was good as gold, always joking and laughing and a friend to all. He will be missed greatly by anyone who was blessed enough to know him.

Calling hours will be at Sanderson Funeral Home in Middlebury on Saturday, March 2, from 1-3 p.m., with a celebration of life at the VFW in Middlebury directly following. A burial of his ashes will come in the spring at the graveside of his father at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Fort Edward, N.Y.

John is survived by sons, Jarret (Liz) Knapp and Justin Knapp of New York; his mother, Gloria Terry; brother Jesse Terry and partner Nina; his sister Jeanette Marcum; his favorite cousin and best friend Joseph Smith of Port Henry, N.Y.; hundreds of beloved cousins near and far and nieces and nephews; as well as many good friends at Porter Hospital, where John was employed for many years. John was predeceased by his father, Thomas Terry in 1983, his grandparents and all of his 21 aunts and uncles.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his name to: HOPE 282 Boardman Street, Middlebury, VT 05753

Goodnight, John Boy.◊
