Terry W. Eggers, age 67 of Plainville, passed away on Sunday, October 20, 2019 at his home in Plainville. Terry was born on August 4, 1952 in Phillipsburg, Kansas to Edmond and Betty (Palmer) Eggers. Terry grew up in Stockton and graduated from Stockton High School with the class of 1972. On October 27, 1984, he was united in marriage to Linda (Rupke) Eggers in Plainville, Kansas.

Terry worked for the oilfield moving oil derricks until his retirement. He was a gentle giant, and had the biggest heart that was full of love for his family, friends, and anyone he came to know. He was a part of the Senior Companion Program for 10 years earning the 10 year plaque. He also helped to mold the minds of young people whom he later kept in touch with, and he never knew a stranger. Terry enjoyed family traditions like making homemade ice cream at get-togethers, and playing cards and dominos. He loved his step-kids as if they were his own, and adored his grandchildren. Terry was a member of the First Lutheran Church and lived a life that was nothing short of a prime example of what a genuinely good Christian man should be; living by faith and selfless love just as the Bible tells us to do.

Terry was a beacon of light and a caring soul. His legacy of selfless love and generosity will be remembered by all.

He is survived by his wife Linda (Rupke) Eggers of the home in Plainville; sons, Patrick (Kim) McClurg of Liberal, Kansas and Glen McClurg of Hays, Kansas; brothers, Richard (Joyce) Eggers of Salina, Kansas, Robert Eggers of Apache Junction, Arizona, and Ron (Dana) Eggers of Parsons, Kansas; sister Debra Schellinger of Stockton, Kansas; grandchildren, Nicholas Luna, Ryan McClurg, and Greg McClurg; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Terry is preceded in death by his parents Edmond and Betty Eggers and sister, Shirley Desaire.
