Obituary for Terry Wayne Bourquin

August 10, 1942 - September 1, 2020
McHenry, Illinois | Age 78


Terry Wayne Bourquin, age 78, of McHenry passed away on September 1, 2020 at Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington.
Terry was born on August 10, 1942 in Worthington, Minnesota, son of the late Howard and Corabel Bourquin. He married Anna Vaitkewicz on January 7, 1967 in Chicago.

Terry was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and friend to many. He was a Navy veteran and he lived to drive, spending most of his life behind the wheel of a semi. Every morning was a "good morning" no matter what he woke up in a great mood. He was always looking for an opportunity to socialize with people no matter who they were. He was an avid aggravator who loved to get a rise out of people close to him with nothing but good intentions. He never missed the chance to tell an inappropriate joke or story. His philosophy was to never leave the house mad or go to bed mad. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all who knew him.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 53 years Anna; his children: Valerie, Linda, Tony (Sherry), Brad, Glen, Terry Ann and Johnny (Laurie); his grandchildren: Greg, Philip, Amanda, Tammy, Dana, Al, Nick, Koty, Dylan, Brad Jr., Michael, Dustin, Nicole, Devin, Jacob, Lauren and Christian; his 16 great-grandchildren as well as his brother Harvey.
He was preceded in death by his parents Howard and Corabel Bourquin; his brother Harley and sister Marion.
