Terrell ‘Terry’ Boese: Jan. 19, 1965 – July 23, 2021



Terrell “Terry” Boese was born in Millington, Tenn., on Jan. 19, 1965, and departed this life on July 23, 2021. He grew up in Weatherford, Okla., and graduated from Weatherford High School.

Terry was a family man who was married to the love of his life Carol for 36 years. They raised three amazing children together. He was the epitome of what is an incredible husband and father. He had an infectious personality and livened the room everywhere he went. He made sure that he left everything better than he found it.

Terry served in the United States Navy for 26 years. He proudly wore the rank of Senior Chief Petty Officer. He deployed on six carriers and went on deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan with tours in Florida, Tennessee, Washington, California and Japan.

Terry was a “jack-of-all-trades.” He was a musician, carpenter and master brewer, among many other titles. There was nothing Terry couldn’t do. He also loved riding horses and motorcycles and had his hand in pretty much everything as he was full of life.

Terry was also a businessman. He established Wicked Teuton Brewing Co. and Whidbey Island Homebrew Supply, where everyone was welcomed to his “living room.” Terry touched the hearts of all who knew him and his legacy is bigger than life itself.

Terry was preceded in death by his father Robert S. Boese and brother Gerald “Jerry” Gowans.

He leaves to carry on his amazing memories and legacy his wife Carol Boese; three children Megan Elizabeth Roberts (spouse Brett Roberts), Robert Christopher Boese (spouse Briana Boese), and Brian Joseph Boese; grandchildren, Shayla Boese and Jaxon Christopher Boese; sister Tamara Miller; mother Linda Boese; several nieces, nephews, cousins; and many more who were “his family” — you all know who you are.

Terry often said…”IF ifs and buts were candy and nuts, we’d all have a Merry Christmas” … don’t sweat the small stuff and enjoy life to the fullest, which he did.

Military funeral honors were rendered on Tuesday, Aug. 3, 2021, at a private funeral service held at Wallin-Stucky Funeral Home prior to the public Celebration of Life at the Blue Fox Drive-In.
