Terry Wayne Keggereis, 55, of Stringtown, Oklahoma, passed away Wednesday, February 10, 2016, in Collin County, Texas.

Graveside service will be held at 4:00 p.m., Sunday, February 14, 2016, at Smith Cemetery in Shelby County.  Visitation will be held prior to the service at Watson & Sons Funeral Home in Center, beginning at 2:00 p.m.

Mr. Keggereis was born January 20, 1961, in Shreveport, Louisiana, to Everett Paul Keggereis and Gladys Janette Burns Moore.  He loved playing his guitar, fishing, riding his motorcycle and flying his remote control helicopter. Mr. Keggereis was a member of Stringtown Baptist Church in Stringtown, Oklahoma.

Terry Keggeris was a father, a son, a brother and an Uncle. We have so many wonderful memories of him. He would always say, turn that frown upside down. He was quirky, funny and down to earth. He always wanted to teach you something you didn’t know.  Cheering you up when you were down, always encouraging others.  

If you were in need he always tried to help in some form.  One of Rachel’s favorite memories of him was him playing the guitar for Emma. She was 2, she was grinning from ear to ear. She absolutely loved it. Terry was so funny even without trying.

One of Codi's favorite comical memories of Terry was when we were all eating dinner at Ponchos. This young waitress came to take our order and immediately Terry asked her what was on her face? With a surprised look she said she drew on her eyebrows. It got really quiet. Then out of nowhere he asked if she used that pen around her lips too. Everyone started laughing including the waitress.

Terry was such a character. He knew his Bible from front to back, he loved sharing God’s Word with everyone. He was also one heck of a fisherman. One of Jennifer's fishing memories of Terry was when they came home to visit.

As soon as they walked in the door, Terry was so excited to show all of his fishing pictures. He caught over 600 lbs. of fish while offshore fishing one day. He was a bright soul. We all love and miss him dearly. Rest in peace Terry.

He is survived by
Sons:
Michael Keggereis of Highland Village, Texas
Terry Keggereis Jr. of Lewisville, Texas

Mother: Gladys Janette Moore of Stringtown, Oklahoma

Sister: Donna Lynn Self of Stringtown, Oklahoma

Brother: Tom Keggereis of Stockton, Missouri
