Terry enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. Family was everything to him, as he was the happiest when he was around family. Terry loved traveling between Utah, Nebraska, and Minnesota to spend time with family. Terry’s priority was going to Utah to visit with his two daughters, two son-in-law’s, and four grandchildren. He loved everything about being a father and grandpa. He loved making his grandchildren laugh. Terry also enjoyed attending his family’s sporting events, helping out during harvest time, and sitting around laughing and joking with family. He also gave the best hugs and he definitely showed how much he loved each and every one close to him. He was known as the protector of the family, he was fiercely protective of those he loved.

Terry enjoyed riding his prized Harley Davidson motorcycle, and made many trips to Sturgis with friends. Terry enjoyed watching and following WWE, professional wrestling. During his trips home to Nebraska he made a point to pick up Twin Bing candy bars for his trip back home. Even though he didn’t have family in Colorado, his friends were like his family. He was blessed to have so many close friends who loved him. He was known as a truly kind, gentle, sweet decent, genuine man and would do anything for anyone.

Memories Timeline


  1. It was such a pleasure working with Terry for the past 7 years. Always my last visitor at the end of my day. My husband Joseph and the kiddos were upset to hear of is passing also. He was such an amazing friend and always smiled no matter what was going on around. I really miss seeing him and laughing with him at the end of a sometimes trying day in the office. Rest in peace my friend. Although terribly missed here, I know he’s in a better place. Love you. Love Joseph, Emilia, and ALL the kiddos.

  2. I am so glad I got the pleasure of knowing you these past couple years Terry, I’ll never forget how your smile could change the whole atmosphere and how caring/helpful you always were. You were an incredible man , that could be looked up to, a real solid guy with a heart of gold. I’ll never forget that smile/laugh or our conversations about life. Keep on Shiftin those gears Pal your on Heavens Highway now !

  3. It was a great privilege to get to know Terry Addison during my time working at the Grand Junction Mail Handling Annex as the truck dispatcher. He was always a very good person with everyone he came in contact with. We frequently had chatted about his family, his motorcycle and the Palisade peaches my wife and I would get for him. He will definitely be missed on this side of the mountains! Rest in peace, my friend!

  4. Terry will be missed by the USPS at the Denver GMF. It was such a pleasure to work
    with Terry for many years. One of the best and kind man ever. My thoughts and

  6. I had the pleasure of being on the other end of a phone call many times with Terry. He was a great employee of our Company and will be greatly missed. I believe God has a higher purpose for Terry now. He will forever be our guardian angel.

  7. I met Terry when I was very young and still remember how wonderful and kind he was. He loved his family more than any man I had ever met. Even as a child you could see that all he did was for his girls. He was always involved and always made sure everyone was smiling. The world shines a little less without him but I can guarantee he will be just as protective and diligent as a guardian angel as he was as a family man. My heart goes out to his family. Love and light to you all.

  10. Sir Terry Addison, your presence and love towards all your co-workers, family and friends will not be forgotten! I remember the first time we met I told you I have 5 children, you said, “wow,” and was glad that I was a family man. I was only at Beco Inc for only a year, but
    we’ve stayed in touch via FB. But we’ve crossed paths at times at USPS, were I am employed after leaving Beco. Thank you for your friendship and advice! RIP, I pray your family and grandkids are comforted by the peace of God and strengthend with the might Jesus Christ to carry on your legacy.
