Our loving Terry Lee Zachary was born on Dec. 13, 1953, in Highland Park, Mich. We were blessed to enjoy his contagious smile, laughter and amazing personality until Dec. 26, 2020.
Terry graduated from Castle Heights Military Academy in Lebanon, Tenn. in 1972. Terry graduated with his undergraduate and masters degree from the University Of Tennessee Knoxville in 1979.
Terry worked at RJ Young in Nashville, Tenn., for 25 years and retired in May 2020.
Terry loved growing up in Lebanon, Tenn., with all of his wonderful friends there. Being a COWBOY in his youth was the coolest experience he could imagine! His parents blessed him with the privilege of living out his cowboy dreams by providing him with one amazing horse, Shoelace. Terry and Shoelace were so in sync and worked so hard they won numerous competitions, too many to count. The most amazing – National Horsemanship! Terry’s love and passion for Christ was evident by his devotion, volunteer spirit and love of his beloved church of over 27 years, Grace Chapel in Leiper’s Fork, Tenn.
Terry was preceded in death by his beloved father, Kit Zachary; and his beloved mother-in-law, Gin Gin Hoppus.
Terry is survived by his loving wife of 33 years, Jamie; most loved and amazing son Joseph (who he was incredibly proud of), his sweet wife Katie; God-sent grandson, Jackson; precious beloved mother, Oleta; loving brother, Timothy; great friend and father-in-law, Jay; and his amazing Lebanon, Tenn. “Band Of Bothers” Chuck, Jack, Marvin, Skip and Tommy.
