Terry passed away on January 10, 2019 at the age of 72. His life was a precious gift and made our world a brighter, better place with his wit, personality, laughter and love for life.
He was born in Madera and was a life long resident. Terry graduated from Madera High School in 1964. He would often reminisce of his classmates and the friendships that lasted a lifetime. Spending time and talking to friends always put a smile on his face.
Terry always looked for the best in others and gave the best he had. He loved working at the Save Mart Pharmacy where he was able to help the community by getting everyone the medication needed to feel better while also offering a kind word to lift their spirits.
Terry’s most enjoyable and memorable activities were painting, photography, writing poetry, reading Louis L’Amour novels, being outdoors, fishing, boating at Bass Lake, collecting sea shells at the beach and piloting their airplane with his Dad. No matter what, he always wanted to make everyone around him smile, laugh and just be happy. He always had a smile on has face and a twinkle in his eyes.
His mother, Jennie Oberti Daggett, and his father, Dr. Gilbert G. Daggett, preceded him in death. Terry is survived by a son Joseph Daggett, his wife Traci, their three children, Logan, Kendal, and Kynslee and a daughter Gina Howard.
A special Thank you to Anna Marie, Steve and the entire staff at Autumn Ridge Assisted Living, your love, care, and support will never be forgotten.
