Obituary for Terry Joseph Zeeman

Zeeman, Terry Joseph, born August 2, 1952 in Pontiac, MI passed away at his home Friday, July 2, 2010.

It took hard work to raise a family as close as ours. Terry was at the heart of everything that truly mattered in our life. He was a loving husband to Kathy, his wife of 36 years. A wonderful father to Cassandra and Jessica, father-in-law to Eli Berant and new grandfather to his precious grandson Rhys, who came 9 weeks early to meet his remarkable grandpa. Terry is survived also by his twin brother Berry Zeeman.

Terry was employed by Lake Orion Community Schools as head groundskeeper. He had respect for his co-workers, faculty, and students. His presence there will be greatly missed.

Terry had a passion for all things outdoors. He had his little piece of heaven in Leonard where he lived with his wife, daughters, son-in-law, 3 dogs, 6 cats and 7 horses. Anything or anyone who needed a place to stay was always welcome. His most recent love was that of self containment. He tinkered with wind and solar energy, he heated the house with a wood burner, and he took up half of his prized lawn to put in a garden.

Terry left big boots to fill, but with the help of family, friends, neighbors and prayers we will go on without him. He would not have wanted it any other way.

A Memorial Service will be held at Upland Hills Farms 481 Lake George Road Thursday, July 8, 2010 at 5 PM with a pot luck dinner to follow immediately after the service. Friends may begin to gather at the farm starting at 3 PM. In lieu of flowers, the family is accepting memorials in Terry's honor to maintain the farm he built and so loved.
