Born March 16, 1953, in Upper Sandusky, he was one of 10 children. His parents, Robert C. and Edith L. (Greeno) Kitzler preceded him in death. On Feb. 7, 1981, he married Julia A. Vogel.

He was preceded in death by a daughter, Chantel Kin; two brothers, Frank and Richard “Dick” Kitzler; and two sisters, Gloria Marshall and Kim Badertcher.
Terry was an easy going, soft spoken guy. He had an infectious smile that literally went ear to ear. He will be missed cruising the streets of Carey in his vehicle or on the scooter.
Terry was a family man who loved watching his grandchildren at various events. He enjoyed golfing with family and friends at Bob’s Countryside Golf Course.
Known to be a social butterfly, he was a member of the American Legion 344 Auxiliary, Eagles Aerie 2198, Carey Conservation Club and life member of the VFW 3759, all of Carey and the Moose Lodge 872 in New Riegel.
