May 25, 1950 - November 21, 2020
Terry Lee Sallee, of Rapid City, MI, died on November 21st, 2020 at the age of 70 in the presence of his beloved wife, Toni Sallee. Terry was born in Dayton, Ohio and was the son of the late Burl Thomas Sallee. He was one of four siblings, Donna Russell of Charlevoix, MI, Judy Muma (Pat) of East Jordan, MI, and the late Jim Downey (Charlotte) of East Jordan, MI. He graduated from Ellsworth Community Schools in 1968 and directly thereafter joined the US Navy serving in the Vietnam War. He worked for 25 years with Gordon Food Service as a truck driver and later as a supervisor. After retirement he enjoyed the bantering of good-natured friends working at the Chief Golf Course in Bellaire, MI. Terry was a loyal, fun-loving, and generous man with a gregarious laugh that lit up the room. His love for his wife, children, grandchildren, siblings, nieces, and nephews was undeniable. When it wasn’t golf season, he was yelling at the TV when the Detroit Lions were playing, planning for hunting season with his son, and spending time with his grandchildren. His two dogs, Ollie and Beavis, were never far from his side. Terry is survived by his wife, Toni and five children, Christopher Sallee (Bridgette) of Rapid City, MI, Dan Sallee (Jenna) of Broomfield, CO, Terry Melissa Sallee of Pensacola, FL, Tom Westerlin (Sherine), and Traci Zainea. He is also survived by his sisters and their families and 8 grandchildren, Henry (H-Bomb), Madeline (Maddie), Charlotte (Charlie), Nayla, Lyric, Terry (Buddy), Simon and Amelia. Services and burial will be held in Spring 2021. Arrangements have been entrusted to Kalkaska Funeral Home and Cremation Services.
