Due to sudden onset of PD with LBD, Terry’s twin brother, Tony, and sister-in-law, Theresa, nephew Matt Greenlee and niece Jenna (Greenlee) Phillips of Normal helped move him from Norfolk to Normal in August 2016, so he would not have to be alone far away from family and friends and so they could help manage his health care needs.

Terry was born Dec. 29, 1961, in Moline. He grew up in the Quad-City area, living mostly in and around Davenport. He graduated from West High School, Davenport, and then earned an associate of science degree in electronic engineering technology from Scott Community College, Bettendorf. Terry began his career as a digital operator at WHBF, Channel 4 in Rock Island. He then went to WQAD, Channel 8 in Moline and worked several years there until moving to Norfolk in 2000 and working for WGNT, Channel 3 for 17 years. Terry earned his digital broadcaster’s license and received several “Chairman’s Team Awards” for outstanding performance from The New York Times Broadcast Media Group. Terry’s career spanned a total of 31-plus years.

Terry really enjoyed studying the Bible, especially the Book of Revelations and End Time prophecies. Terry loved the mountains, hiking, camping and enjoyed God’s creation. He enjoyed science fiction and was a fan of "Battlestar Galactica." Several years ago, Terry had a black Lab named Tyco, whom he loved very much and missed terribly. Terry was a runner and ran several road races including the Bix7 a few times. In high school, Terry was on the chess team and continued to play chess in his adult life. He was an adventurist and engaged in white water rafting on some of his trips to Colorado and he swam with sharks in Hawaii. Terry loved visiting his brother Mike, in Hawaii, and went there several times. The most recent trip he took to Hawaii was late spring 2016. Terry also loved visiting friends and family in Illinois and Iowa, and he loved pizza.

Terry is survived by his mother, Joyce Joanne (Greenlee) Feeney and her husband Jack, of Davenport; his brother, Rick (Jeanine) Greenlee of Rosemount, Minnesota; twin brother, Tony (Theresa) of Normal; his brother, Mike Greenlee of Honolulu, Hawaii; several nephews, nieces, great-nephews, great-nieces, aunts, uncles and cousins. Terry was preceded in death by his father, William “Red” Marshall Greenlee, his brother, Robert (Bob) “Rusty” Greenlee, paternal grandparents, maternal grandparents, several aunts and uncles.

Visitation and a Celebration of Terry’s Life will take place 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25, at Adventure Christian Community Church, 6509 Northwest Blvd. Davenport, with Pastor Sara Thompson officiating. Visitation to greet family and friends of Terry will be for one hour prior to the Celebration of Terry’s Life. Please be comfortable in your attire and come as you are. Jeans are absolutely fine. Terry would have wanted it this way.

Terry’s family would like to extend a special thank you to all the hospice nurses, aides and technicians of VITAS Healthcare as well as all the staff at Sugar Creek Alzheimer’s Special Care Center. You made Terry comfortable and there are no words that suffice enough to express our gratitude to you.

Terry will be greatly missed by his family and friends. Tony and Theresa are very thankful that they were able to show Christ’s love to Terry and serve him during his last few months. They shared many sweet, tender, intimate moments with him during the last week of his journey on his earth, but especially cherish those moments during his last 24 hours. We know Terry is safely home and is resting in the presence of Jesus, the God and King, whom he served throughout his life. Terry, “Live long and prosper!" We love you very much and we thank God for loaning you to us.
