McCauley papers

Terry Wayne McCauley

Terry Wayne McCauley, lifelong resident of Newhope, died Saturday, Oct. 17, 2015 in his home, surrounded by his family. He was 53 years old. Terry was born on Aug. 27, 1962 to Bill and Betty McCauley. He was preceded in death by his mother; and his mother-in-law, Diane Smith.

On Aug. 25, 1990, Terry was married to Michelle Smith McCauley, also of Newhope.  Their marriage was one most can only dream of. Terry was the definition of a devoted husband and loving father of two girls, Robin and Cassi.

Terry worked in the log woods from daylight till dark for many years to provide for his family, even after his cancer diagnosis, he worked as much as he was able.

His summers were spent camping with family and friends. He loved watching dirt track racing on Saturday nights and Sundays were always spent with his family, especially his grandchildren, Collin and Claire. They were his greatest joys. He loved riding them around on his back and being the horse, teaching them to fish and helping Collin shoot his first deer. His grand-dog, Gypsy, was also a source of great comfort for him.  She was his constant companion.

Terry attended Newhope Free Will Baptist Church, the church where he and Michelle were married 25 years ago; the church where he gave his life to Jesus and was baptized.  It is only fitting for him to say his final goodbyes there, as well. His church family became a rock for him during his long fight with cancer.

To know Terry was to love him.  He was a fast talker, master joke teller and loyal friend.  We will miss his contagious laugh more than anything.

He is survived by his wife, Michelle McCauley of Newhope; two daughters and one son-in-law, Robin and Jasper Fatherree of Lockesburg and Cassi McCauley of Dierks; two grandchildren, Collin and Claire Fatherree; his father, Bill McCauley and his wife, Estella, of Dierks; two sisters, Brenda McCauley of Dierks and Peggy Crow and her husband, Noah, of Kirby; his father-in-law, Don Smith of Newhope; his sister-in-law, Dana Wright, and her husband, Rick, of Newhope; two nieces, Dallas Sutton and Laci Wright; several uncles, aunts, cousins and a multitude of longtime friends.

Services were at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2015, in the Newhope Free Will Baptist Church with Bro. Scott Vaughn and Bro. Kenny Fant officiating.

Visitation was on Monday, 6-8 p.m. at Newhope Free Will Baptist Church.

Interment was in the Mount Joy Cemetery under the direction of Davis-Smith Funeral Home, Glenwood.

Pallbearers were Greg Janes, Noah Crow, Rick Wright, Brian Reid, Paul Ward, Drew Pannell, Michael Jester, David Smith and Michael Bailey.
