Terry Leonard of Green River, Wyoming passed away suddenly at his home in Green River on July 26, 2021 at the age of 59.
He was born February 15, 1962 in Greybull, WY to Brooks and Janet Leonard. He attended schools in many areas until his parents settled in Green River, WY where he attended high school and achieved his GED in 1981.
Terry married Kathrin Gardea in 1979 and welcomed their daughter Jessica in 1980. Terry and Kathrin would later divorce. He worked at Tuckers Garage from 1979 until he became a Shotfire at Allied Chemical. After being laid off from Allied Chemical, Terry joined the United States Army in 1984. He was eventually stationed in Fort Ord, CA where he was a Field Radio Operator. After 4 years of service, Terry left the military and moved back home to Green River, WY to be closer to family.
Terry began working at Church & Dwight where he met his current wife Luana and stepdaughter Charity in 1988. They were together for 25 years before joining in marriage in 2013.
Terry loved spending time with his family and being dragged to their many activities. He enjoyed the outdoors which included hunting, camping at the Flaming Gorge and side by side riding. Terry was an avid dog lover. He always had treats for all the dogs in the family, especially his furbabies, Tiffy who passed in 2002 and Bennie who passed in 2021. Terry was someone that everyone could count on. If you ever needed anything, he was right there. If you’ve ever seen Terry around, he had a Bud in one hand and a smoke in the other.
Terry is survived by his wife, Luana Kunz; daughters Jessica (Dan) Noel of St. Clairsville, OH and Charity (Rob) Clark; grandchildren Jaden Noel, Alesha Noel, Aubrie Clark and Brennyn Clark. He is also survived by his parents, sister Shari (Bob) Sheets, brothers Gary (Kayleen) Leonard and Larry (Lora) Leonard and numerous nieces and nephews.
Terry was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents Rev. Thomas and Lillian Adam and paternal grandparents Ralph and Dorothy Leonard.
