Terrence Jacob Stricherz was born October 20, 1961 in Watertown, SD to Darrell and Mary Stricherz. During his life, he had several careers, all done well, reflecting his strong work ethic. He was a man who would help anyone and did everything for his family. Taking care of his girls was the focus of his life, and he did an amazing job of it. His "hobby" cow ranching was his passion. He loved the time spent outside chasing cows, irrigating, fixing a fence, or anything in his tractor. He spent his last day on December 9, 2018 doing what he loved.
Terry was preceded in death by his father, Darrell; and his brothers, Tim and Trent.
He is survived by his mother Mary of Waverly, SD; three sisters, Paulette (Scott) Schmeling of New Ulm, MN, Lea Anne Manke (Bob Benson) of Mitchell, SD, and Darla (Randy) Guderian of Kranzburg, SD; three brothers, Tom (Donna) Stricherz of Waverly, SD, Tad Stricherz (Kathy Minatra) of Waverly, SD, and Todd Stricherz of Brookings, SD; his wife, Lynelle Stricherz of Ignacio, CO; four daughters, Miranda Russell (Tony Boughton) of Watertown, SD, Adria Freitas of Ignacio, CO, Jayce Stricherz of Ignacio, CO, and July Stricherz of Ignacio, CO; nine grandchildren; twenty nieces and nephews; and numerous great nieces and great nephews.
Terry's giving nature, laugh and orneriness will be missed by every person he knew.
