     Terry Nelson Myers, 71, of Jersey Mills, passed away Tuesday, February 13, 2018.
     Born July 4, 1946 in Jersey Shore, he was the son of Nelson K. Myers and Anna Dolina Myers. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his daughter, Abigail A. Myers on May 22, 2001; and a brother in law, Eddie Kramer.
     Terry is survived by his wife of 42 years, Dorian E. Hollick Myers, they were united in marriage on June 6, 1975 in Gettysburg at the United Methodist Church. Also surviving are his sister, Donna Kramer, of Toledo, OH; a brother, Daniel “Boone” (Melinda) Myers, of Jersey Shore; and a son in law, Kyle Kelly of Cogan Station.
     Terry honorably served his country in the United States Marine Corps from 1966 to 1972. He was always proud to have stood honor guard for President Lyndon Johnson. He was a 1966 graduate of Jersey Shore High School and was a graduate of Williamsport Community College with a degree in welding.
     Throughout his life he worked for Paul and Carol Asper at Penn Artic, was a welder for Spencer Heater, and worked at Jersey Shore Steel. For the past 42 years he was the owner of Terry’s Coal and Wood Stoves in Jersey Shore.
     Terry was born and raised and lived his entire life in Jersey Mills. He was a native of Pine Creek and a true mountain man! Two of his passions in life were his stove shop and hunting. He was an avid hunter and a lifelong member of the National Rifle Association. Terry loved nothing more than to feed the deer and hunting trophy white tails. He also enjoyed cooking, especially wild game. Another lifelong passion was his love for his many German Shepherds. His faithful companion, Sophie, was by his side when he passed away.
     A funeral service honoring the life of Terry will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, February 17, 2018 at Frederick B. Welker Funeral Home, 125 North Main St., Jersey Shore.

Prayers for my high-school classmate Dorian and all her loved ones. Terry was one of the good people -- a legendary patriot and a fabled Pine Creeker who left an indelible mark on his beloved hills. May God grant you peace in the knowledge that he will live in a place even more beautiful (if such can be imagined) forever. -- Terry Dunkle

Dorian& Kyle. Our deepest and sincere apologies cannot be expressed in words in learning of Terry's passing. Matt, Michele and I are so blessed to have the great friendship bond with Terry. Terry was such a great mentor to Matt. We embraced Terry as Family and he always kept a watchful eye on the cabin; everyday for us. We always looked forward to his weekly calls, and of course our personal visits on the Pine we're so special. Terry is the "Mountain Man" Matt looked up too, and He is the epitome of the meaning of a True Friend. Terry always talked so highly of the two of you. And, of course Sophie stories galore! Terry sense of humor was so contagious, and his life experiences he shared with us are forever forged within us. If there is anything we can help or do. Please call. Matt and I will be up on Friday night's viewing. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.

Mark & I are so saddened to hear about Terry. His antics and humor always brought a smile. It was a pleasure to know him. I'm sure he is already with dad, and they are joking and laughing.

I was blessed enough to be able to spend a year talking to Terry and getting to know him. He was a customer of mine and from day one he turned it into a friendship with genuine care and concern for others. Terry's love for nature, Country and for his fellow man was infectious. I never met Terry in person but he always left me feeling as though we were family that had know each other forever. I think he left most people with this feeling. God bless you Dorian and Kyle.

Dear Dorian,
We want to express our condolences at Terry's passing. Our friendship started with Al and Paul Bryan vacationing near Boone and Terry's house in Summer, 1956. What memories we have of our childhood pals.

I'm sorry we can't join you; Paul has Parkinson's and cannot travel, but we'll be there in spirit and in prayer to support you, Kyle, Boone, and Donna.

Paul and Nadine Bryan, daughter Jill and granddaughter Kiera.

Dorian, we are so very sorry to hear about Terry! We just returned to Tampa today, and Dave learned of this from a friend. Terry was a great friend and fellow Marine with Dave...lots of years and lots of hunting memories. Sincere condolences, and we'll check with you when we return to PA. Please let us know if we can help in any way. Love and prayers for you and family
