Terry Ray Percival, 45 years of age, passed away on September 11, 2016. Terry was a native of Colorado and has lived in Englewood, Aurora, Calhan, and Black Forest, Colorado. He was a production manager for an auto body shop in Colorado Springs.
Terry was born on January 7, 1971 to Larry Ray Percival and Emma Louise (Rogers) Percival in Denver, Colorado. On July 15, 2006 he married his best friend, Lisa Jones in Black Forest, Colorado.
Terry was a member of The American Legion, in which he was an active participant. He joined them for so many rides, many of which his wife Lisa or daughters McKenzy or Colleen would accompany him. He served our country in the United States Air Force for 6 years. Terry loved to hunt, fish, joke around, protect his family, and help others. He was always there for a friend or family member in need. Truly, what sets Terry apart from many others is that his friends really became his family. You couldn’t help but be drawn to him, and if needed, he was there, no questions asked. He had a way of giving you confidence, empowering you, and at the same time, reminding you not to be a little bitch about it! Terry loved to take a ride on his Harley and have his Lee riding with him. They were a fantastic team and no one could hold a candle to the love and generosity that emanated from them both. Terry will be missed by so very many people. He touched lives in a sarcastic, don’t give a damn way that you could only understand if you had been fortunate enough to know him. He could insult you with a straight face, and all you’d feel was love. That, my friends, is a rare talent! Nothing can replace the dynamic and presence that Terry brought to so many lives.
He is survived by his loving wife and best friend, Lisa Percival; his children: Brittany, Brooke, McKenzy, Colleen, and Tristen Ray; his parents: Larry and Emma Percival; his sibling: Danny; his grandchildren: Axton and Kaiden.
