It is with great sadness that on April 26, 2019, we lost our brother Terry to his courageous battle with cancer. Born in Bristol on Feb. 7, 1958, Terry attended Bristol schools, graduating from Bristol Central High School in 1976.
Terry worked as a shipping and receiving supervisor for The Superior Electric Company for 23 years, until the plant closed, and then 5 years as receiver at A&P Package Stores in Forestville. In 2014, Terry moved to Ladson, S.C., to live with his brother and best friend, Brian. There, he worked for the 7-Eleven Companies until his recent illness.
To know Terry was to love him. He was light-hearted, kind, a great listener and non-judgmental. He enjoyed swimming, biking, reading, music, crossword puzzles, the Eagles and his Budweiser beer.
He leaves behind his brother, Brian Gagner of Ladson, S.C.; his sisters, Rachael D’Andrea and her husband Vincent of Morris, and Jane Gagliardi and her husband Frank of Bristol; nephews, Jeffrey and David D’Andrea, Antonio, Giovanni and Domenic Gagliardi. He is predeceased by his parents, Donald and Norma (Scott) Gagner; sisters, Noreen Norkus and Brenda Mitchell; a brother, Scott Gagner; and his nephew, Eric Gagner.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2019, at 10 a.m. at Dunn Funeral Home, 191 West St., Bristol. Friends may call at the funeral home on Saturday from 9 a.m. until time of the service. Burial will follow in St. Joseph Cemetery.
