Terry May

Terry May, 52 of Winsted,  passed away June 11, 2020.

A memorial service will be held on June 18, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. at The Chilson Funeral Home in Winsted with Pastor Dave Hormann officiating.

Terry grew up in Motley where he lived and graduated from high school. He attended Central Lakes College in Brainerd for Radio Broadcasting. Terry enjoyed many kinds of music but his favorite was rock and roll.

Terry met the love of his life, Debbie while working in Wadena as an aide assistant at the care center. She kissed him at work in the elevator. After that it was history. They were married in August of 1994 in Motley. They resided in Brainerd. Terry was employed at Grand Casino Milacs for 14+ years. While employed there he was able to meet a few celebrities, one being Don Ho. Terry took Debbie to see Dwight Yoakam and Bill Cosby. They also enjoyed camping and going to Moon Dance Jam Music Fest to celebrate their anniversary.

Terry was known for his sense of humor. He tried to make people laugh; especially Debbie. His sense of humor and quick wit helped him through some very difficult times. Terry suffered during the last years with a degenerative muscle disease causing him to be wheelchair bound. As a result he needed to be in a care center. He since suffered a weakening heart condition which finally took his life. Even through all this he kept trying to look for the humor in life with Debbie by his side.

Terry’s life was lived for others. He loved his family, his wife and his cat, Colby.

He is survived by his wife Debbie (DeBolt) May, two step-children, Amanda Borg and Damien Agboola; two sisters, Ardith May-Tufvander (Jerry Tufvander), Robin May; one brother, David May; nieces and  nephews, (Kevin, Kenny, Scott, Angela, Jamie, Travis, Shawna and Brenna); cousins, aunts and uncles. 

He is preceeded in death by his father and mother, Calvin and Evelyn May.
