Terry Lee Rollins, 64, went home to be with his Lord and Savior, on Sunday, July 3, 2022, surrounded by the family that he loved so much.
He was born on March 1, 1958, to Faye Withrow Rollins and the late Jack Arlen Rollins. He graduated from Bradley Central High School in 1976 and then continued to IBEW Local 175 electrical school. Hard work was all he knew. He was known for being very particular about his workmanship. He taught apprenticeship school at IBEW Local 175 for many years. He mentored between 300 to 400 men in his 40-plus-year career as an electrician. He owned his own business for 12 years and was very successful. He ended his career at Tri-State Electrical Contractors, where he was a project manager at Duracell. He called the men in his crews his "sons," and he loved them dearly. He loved his entire work family.
He was a member of White Oak Baptist Church, where he led the choir. He loved gospel music. God certainly blessed him with the love of his life when they met over 36 years ago. They were married on Jan. 10, 1987, and shared a love that many envy. He loved working on his farm and loved his dogs and cows so very much.
In addition to his dad, he was preceded in death by his grandparents, Jake and Imo Rollins, and Orville and Lennie Withrow. Terry was a husband, daddy, pepaw, son, brother, uncle, friend and mentor.
