September 2, 1944 — February 12, 2022

Terry Schoonover, 77, passed away peacefully on the 12th day of February 2022 at his home in Montrose, Colorado. Terry was born on the 2nd day of September 1944 in Montrose, Colorado to Earl and Alice Schoonover. He spent his childhood years in California and joined the military straight out of high school at the age of 17. Terry was a proud veteran and was extremely honored to have served his country and be a part of the 82nd airborne. After years of service, he resided in California until 1975 when he, his pervious wife Kay, and their 3 children Darrin, Michelle, and Stephanie were able to move back to his hometown, Montrose. In 1983 he and Kay welcomed a 4th child, Pam, in their family with whom he had a very close bond with. Terry then decided to follow in his father’s footsteps to pursue a career in plumbing. A career that transformed into a well-known, successful business, known as “Mr. Plumber.” Darrin also followed in his footsteps as a plumber since the age of 12 working hand in hand with his Dad.

Terry and Kay had the privilege of having 4 children together and sharing 18 years of marriage before separation. On the 2nd day of December 1995 Terry married the true love of his life Kelly.
