Terence Dean Heath Sr. of Warsaw, North Carolina, passed away on June 12, 2018, surrounded by loved ones.
Born on October 31, 1960, in Kinston, NC, he was part of a large and ever-growing family. He was the son of Hugh Heath and Doris Boney, and later the stepson of Charles Boney. He was brother to Timmy and Tommy Heath, Johunta Klasson, Jon and Mike Boney, Liz Roddenberry and Kim Maready.
Terry was married for 38 years to the long-time love-of-his-life Donna (Anderson) Heath, of Cincinnati, Ohio. He will also be missed by his children, Terence Dean Heath Jr. and Carolyn Heath of Wilmington, NC, and Lora and Greg Moore of Cincinnati, OH. Terry was a loving Grandaddy to Tommy, Joey, Joshua and Matthew Moore, and Avalyn Heath. He was loved by his whole family, and will be missed by everyone who met him!!!
During his life Terry had many jobs, but one career that he truly loved. As a railroad conductor, he found a job that was more like a hobby. His first words as a baby were "choo choo!" and he loved trains his entire life. Even in the end, Terry was still on a quest for the silver lining - without saying a word, you could tell that his attitude remained “I think I can, I think I can!”
A service celebrating Terry's life will be held on Saturday, June 16th at 2:00 PM at Quinn McGowen Funeral Home in Wallace, NC followed by visitation.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to the National MS Society at

Dean and Carolyn our heart goes out to you. We did not get to know your dad, but if he was anything like you and your daughter he was a special man. Please feel peace tonight knowing he is in a better place looking down on his kids and grandchildren. He will always be with you.
