William Terry Harbert, known to most as Terry, passed away on October 6, 2023, in Warsaw. He was born on July 11, 1959, in Elberton, GA. Terry was a hardworking individual who dedicated many years of his life to the field of upholstery as a sewer and assembler.
Terry had a good sense of humor and was often known for his sarcastic remarks. He had an incredible ability to find joy in the simple moments of life and always knew how to lighten the mood during difficult times.
One of Terry's greatest joys in life stemmed from his love for his grandchildren and family. He cherished every moment spent with them and made lasting memories that will be treasured by all who were fortunate enough to know him. Terry's love extended beyond his immediate family, as he maintained a close relationship with his ex-wife, Edda Sue Harbert.
In his free time, Terry enjoyed various hobbies and interests. He found solace in fishing and boating, finding tranquility in the stillness of nature. He also found joy in playing video games, where he could immerse himself in different worlds and embark on exciting adventures. Traveling was another passion of Terry's and he enjoyed the timeless melodies of classic rock.
Sadly, Terry's life was cut short due to a long battle with Kidney Disease. Despite facing this formidable illness, Terry remained resilient and fought valiantly until the very end. His strength and determination were an inspiration to all who witnessed his bravery.
Terry was preceded in passing by his parents, William Henry Harbert and Nancy Pauline Hatton and his step-father, Hatton, Jr. who was a special part of his life. He leaves behind his children: William "Bill" Harbert of Goshen, Matthew Allen Harbert (and wife, Caroline) of Sterling, VA, and Nancy LeeAnn Harbert-Reiff (and husband, Triston) of Warsaw. Terry's five grandchildren, Malachi Harbert, Keegan, and Lilly Reiff, as well as Rowan and Gavin Harbert, were the light of his life.
During his time with us, Terry brought joy and laughter to everyone he encountered. His quick wit and genuine kindness will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. As we mourn his passing, let us also celebrate the remarkable life he lived and the memories he has left behind.
