Terry P. Downey, born August 18, 1948 in Ironton, Ohio to Edna Downey Kazee and Kermit E. Downey ended his hard fought battle with cancer January 3, 2019 in Medford, Oregon.

Terry graduated from Ironton, Ohio High School (Go Tigers) June of 1966 and graduated from Ohio University (Go Bobcats) June of 1970. He took great joy in the continual support of his Bobcat alumni throughout his life.

Traveling West was always a huge goal and Terry left Ohio for California in 1970 following graduation. In 1981 he made the move to Medford, Oregon his home until the time of his passing. He made a career in the timber industry in lumber wholesale and solidified his move to Oregon remaining active in the business for more than 30 years, meeting many people and making lifelong friends.

Terry loved the outdoors and embraced this through his enjoyment of hunting and fishing. That appreciation of the outdoors was extended by becoming a life member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and spent over 25 years as an active member of the organization. In addition to hunting and fishing he was a knowledgeable and avid sports fan and reader as well as a master of the outdoor barbeque and enjoyed spending time with his friends and family.

Terry is survived by his wife Anne, daughters Melissa and Nicole (husband Chris), and his sons Matt and Tom (wife Brandi) as well as his extended family Pam and Rick Kazee and Patty and Terry Hammond along with 8 grandchildren.

He will be interred in Ironton, Ohio per his request.

Many thanks to Dr. Newton and Cindy, as well as the Asante Hospice Group whose help has been greatly appreciated. The family requests that any contributions in his memory be made to :

Asante Hospice, 2600 Siskiyou Blvd. Suite 100, Medford, OR 97504
