Terry Nooner Sr.

May 24, 1955 — April 13, 2023

Kansas City, Mo

Terry Nooner Sr.

The journey began on May 24,1955 when Tyree Nooner, Sr. and Dorothy Nooner gave birth to their seventh child, Terry Nooner, Sr., at General Hospital #2 in Kansas City, Missouri. He was raised and educated in Kansas City Public Schools concluding with Manual High School and ultimately earning a GED. Terry later moved to Chicago where he earned a vocational certificate in welding and worked as a welder at the North Chicago Rolling Mill.

As a young man, he joined Faith Mission Church under the leadership of the late Elder Hubert Lambert, Sr. It is there where he first accepted Christ and married his first wife, Linda Carter, in 1976. From this union, two children were born (Terry, Jr. & Tanesha). In 2000, Terry married his final wife, Betty Holman, and they cared for one another until her passing in 2019. Terry rededicated his life to the Lord and joined Boone Tabernacle Church of God in Christ under the leadership of Bishop L. F. Thuston. There he faithfully served as a Deacon, Sunday School teacher, and drove the church vehicle.

Though he experienced a great deal of hardship in life, he was resilient and had the discipline and strength to overcome challenges. Many knew Terry as “down to earth” and the full of life brother, uncle, and friend. As a father, he was also full of wisdom, funny stories, sayings, and en-couragement. Terry grew to be a great man of faith who studied the bible diligently and believed its promises. He often requested updated bible study commentaries and different versions of the bible in large print to continue learning and growing in his faith.

Terry departed this earth on Friday, April 14, 2023, the birthday of his younger sister, Theresa. His work was complete, and now he has gone to glory to receive the ultimate reward, eternal life with God, the father. His memory will forever live in the hearts and minds of all that knew him. We have this hope, that we shall see him again. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.

Though the spirit of Terry Nooner, Sr., will forever live on, he will be greatly missed by a host of family and friends. Preceding him in death was his father, Tyree Nooner, Sr., mother, Dorothy (Erby) Nooner; wife, Betty (Holman) Nooner; brothers, Robert, Tyree Jr., Larry, Curtis, and Steven; and sister, Jean.

He is survived by children, Terry Nooner, Jr. (Tracy), Tanesha Nooner Ford (David), and bonus daughter, Karryan Baker; sisters, Dorothy, Barbara, Theresa, and Shirley; brother, Michael; grandchildren Tarynn, Terry III, Tatum, Dawson, Harper, and Dekari Nevels; special friend, Josephine Nash, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and loved ones.
