Terry Kent Davis was born on March 10, 1955 in Coldwater, Kansas to Joseph Lavern and Doris (Smith) Davis. Terry attended grade school in Pratt, Kansas before the family moved to Woodward when Terry was in the 9th grade. He graduated from Woodward High School in 1973. He attended Northwestern Oklahoma State University. He was united in marriage to his high school sweetheart, Sidonna Gayle Warren on July 28, 1973 at the First Christian Church of Woodward. They made their first home in Woodward and have lived here since that time.

He enjoyed going to car races and he and Sidonna were lap counters at the Woodward Track and Beaver. One of his favorite places to go was his property west of Woodward where he spent time with his family and friends and he always enjoyed working out there. Terry also enjoyed fishing and horse back riding.

Sorry for your family's loss.

In the early 1980's when the Iodine plant was sold to the Japanese, Terry asked me to take this golf class in the evening with him at the Woodward course during the summer after work. You see a lot of the Japanese loved golf and Terry was savvy enough to know he better learn this sport.

We both found out that year we both hated golf. Terry used to comment that he "worked golf" and not "played golf" because it felt like work.

He wanted me to play in the foursomes however because while he may not have been a great golfer, I was absolutely terrible. Having me on his team made him look a lot better. ;-)

Terry had the greatest sense of humor. It was a plea
...sure to work under him on my summers home from college as a roustabout "t-hire" out there.

Whatever plans for heaven he will do up there, I am pretty sure it won't involve golf.

My condolences. I've had the opportunity and pleasure to work with Terry on and off over the last 3 decades. He was always willing to help and our conversations always started with personal discussions relating to family, friends, and life before getting to the business part. He truly was a wonderful person and will be missed.
