Darrell Eugene Terzinski

Darrell Eugene Terzinski, age 88, of Rhinelander, passed away Friday, Dec. 7, 2018.

He was born April 27, 1930, in Rhinelander, to Daniel and Florence (Woolney) Terzinski.

He was united in marriage to Darlene Vanney on May 29, 1954.

Darrell graduated from Rhinelander High School in 1948. He worked at Rhinelander Paper Company from 1948 to 1951 and then enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1951 until his honorable discharge in 1953. Upon being discharged from the Army, he returned to work at the Rhinelander Paper Company retiring in 1992.

Darrell enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren, camping with family and friends, musky fishing, deer hunting, bowling, horseshoes, remodeling his homes and landscaping his yards. He always kept busy with a project whether it was big or small, he always liked to have something to do. He spent years "dump digging", finding old homestead sites and coming home with many treasures. After retirement he worked at the Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel office where he met some wonderful new friends. In later years he enjoyed trips to the casinos and the many great people he met on the bus trips.

Darrell will be remembered for his kindness to others, his willingness to help others, his fun-loving spirit and especially his sense of humor.

Darrell is survived by his wife Darlene; daughters, Cindy (Dean) Herum of Rhinelander and Sue Terzinski of Myrtle Beach, S.C.; granddaughters Erika (Dylan Storm) Herum of Elk Mound, Jaime (Brian) Trybula of Carbondale, Colo., grandson Kevin (Katie) Grant of Rhinelander; sister Carol (Jeff) Anderson, brother-in-law Tom Vanney and sister-in-law Dorothy Vanney. He is further survived by many nieces, nephews and other family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his son David Terzinski on June 4, 1996, granddaughter Kari Grant on April 3, 2003, brothers Dennis Terzinski and Douglas Terzinski; sisters-in-law Beverly Terzinski and Lois Terzinski; brother-in-law Richard Vanney and sister-in-law Beverly Vanney.

Darrell's family would like to thank Friendly Village Nursing Home and Ascension Home Hospice for the care they gave Darrell this last month.
