Terry Wayne Bachman

Terry Wayne Bachman, 
of St. Charles, Missouri, passed away Saturday, April 20, 2019, at the age of 79.  Loving husband of the late Mary Alice Bachman; beloved son of the late Clarence and Luella Bachman; devoted father of Scott Wayne (Margaret) Bachman, the late Kristina Ann Bachman, Leslie Deanne Wittmaier, and Jennifer Ann Burgess; cherished grandfather of Logan Wayne Bachman, Jack Michael Bachman, Tommy Handlang, Jessica Handlang, Luke Daniel Wittmaier, Emma Marie Wittmaier, and Gracie Mary Alice Burgess; dear special love of Sharon Zach; dearest brother of Ronald (Patricia) Bachman, Jay (the late Dolores) Bachman, and brother-in-law of Joyce Bachman; and caring uncle "father," of Steve (Cindy) Duello.

Terry is also preceded in death by his siblings, Jack Bachman and Luewanna (Elmer "Red") Duello.

Terry proudly served in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War.  He was a member of the IUEC Local 3 for 53 years, and he retired after more than 32 years in the Elevator industry.

Terry loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren, and he loved to spoil all of them.  He enjoyed the winter months in Florida at Ft. Meyers Beach every year with Sharon.  He looked forward to going boating on the Mississippi River with friends and family.  He was also quite talented at water skiing and was very proud of making it to the top of the pyramid.

Terry enjoyed working out in the yard and tending to his lawn.  He also liked swing dancing, and listening to old time Rock n' Roll.  He was a fun-loving and good-natured man who made friends wherever he went.  He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by his friends and family.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Terry's name to Alzheimer's Association.
