Dr. Lloyd S. Terry

Dr. Lloyd S. Terry of Danville died Jan. 17 at Avon Health and Rehabilitation Center. He was 95.

Born Nov. 3, 1917, in Reno, he was a son of the late Clyde Harry and Grace Poor Terry. He married Oranna Wellman on Aug. 24, 1941, in Danville, and she preceded him in death.

After graduating from Amo High School, he attended Indiana University until being drafted during World War II. While serving in the U.S. Navy, they recommended that he attend medical school. He finished his undergraduate studies at IU and was then accepted into its medical program. Upon completion, he returned to the Navy as a medical officer to fulfill his obligation.

In 1949 he opened his first private practice in Danville. In 1955, Dr. Robert Kirtley joined this practice. When Hendricks County Hospital opened in 1963, they were among the first active medical staff for the emergency room. Dr. Terry retired in 1984 and in 2004 Hendricks Regional Health and the Town of Danville dedicated a street adjacent to the hospital as Terry-Kirtley Drive.

He was an avid IU and Butler basketball fan, and enjoyed spending time at his cabin, fishing, tinkering around, collecting and/or restoring antiques.

Dr. Terry was a member of the Whitestone Christian Church, American Medical Association, and the Crawfordsville Masonic Lodge.

Survivors include his daughters, Cindy (Don) Thompson of Crawfordsville and Penny Terry of California; grandchildren Sarah (Mike) James and Ben (Cara) Thompson; and great-grandchildren Cameron and Lucas James.

Preceding him in death were sisters Bea Rhoades and Virginia Purvis.

Calling will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Baker Funeral Home in Danville. A private inurnment will follow at a later date in Danville South Cemetery.
