Terry Bumpous

Age 60 of Essex and formerly of Custer Park, passed away Sunday, May 23, 2021 at his home.

Born January 24, 1961 in Joliet, Illinois, Terry Lynn was a son of Robert Joseph and Mildred (Beasley) Bumpous. He was raised and educated in Custer Park, and went on to become a heavy equipment operator with Local 150, retiring from Gallagher Asphalt.

Terry enjoyed hunting and fishing, as well as motorcycles. He will most be remembered as a doting “Papa” and cherished time spent with his grandsons.

Survivors include his son and daughter-in-law, Chad and Olivia Bumpous of Wilmington; two grandsons, Parker and Brayden; one brother, Larry Bumpous of South Dakota; several nieces and nephews; his former wife, Brenda Welsh of Wilmington, and his life-long friend, Mike Caise of Essex.

Terry was preceded in death by his parents, and two brothers, Donnie in 2015 and Michael in infancy.
