Terry Tomlinson, a lifelong resident of Caro, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 at the age of 64. Terry was born October 13, 1954 in Caro, the son of Joan (Jayne) Tomlinson and the late Donald “Tubby” Tomlinson. He graduated from Caro High School with the class of 1972. He was self-employed his entire working life, first as a crop farmer, and later as the owner and operator of Terry Tomlinson Trucking for nearly forty years. During that time, Terry also operated a snow removal business. His entire life revolved around those he loved. His shop was always the preferred place for friends to gather. He’ll also be remembered for his giving spirit, never turning down someone in need. Terry was a train enthusiast, hunter, fisherman, and in his younger years, softball player. There was rarely a morning that he couldn’t be found at the State Street Diner in Caro with friends.
Terry is survived by his mother, Joan Tomlinson of Caro; brother, Dean (Brenda) Tomlinson of Caro; son, Jerry (Jusiah) Middaugh of Caro; and the love of his life, Carol Murday of Fairgrove.
