Terry Gallimore
Terry Hyatt Gallimore, age 74, of Goldsboro and formerly of Denton passed away on Sunday, October 10, 2021 at Wayne Memorial Hospital in Goldsboro, NC after a 30-year battle with lung cancer.
A funeral service was held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, October 16, 2021 at Central United Methodist Church conducted by Rev. Benny Clodfelter.   Burial followed at Tom’s Creek Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery. The Family received friends from 12:00 – 1:00 at the Church prior to the service.
He was the first born child of Hyatt and Odessa Gallimore.  He was born December 9, 1946.  He was the oldest of three children.  He graduated from Denton High School in 1965.  After graduation he attended Gaston Technical College and obtained a degree in electronics.
Soon after graduation, he received his US Army induction notice.  He chose to serve in the Air Force and was stationed in Jacksonville, Florida.  While serving in the Air Force he served as a radar technician.  After completing four years in the Air Force, he enrolled in North Carolina State University.  He completed his engineering degree in three and one-half years while working part-time.  His part-time job was, at that time, on the cutting edge of technology - he installed car telephones.
In 1978 he married Brenda Gupton.  He and Brenda enjoyed attending NC State football games and traveling to Las Vegas.  He worked as a city engineer for the city of Goldsboro twenty plus years retiring in 2008.  Terry lost his wife to cancer in 2007.
During his retirement, he and his companion, Phyllis Wittschen, traveled the southern states in his new motor home.  Terry enjoyed sports cars especially Corvettes.  Taking care of his cats and feeding the birds brought him a lot of pleasure.
Terry’s health began to decline due to a previous lung cancer diagnosis in 1990.  He rebounded and lived a pretty full life.  In 2017 his health began a slow decline.  Due to his many rebounds, one of his physicians called him, “Miracle Man”.  He is predeceased by wife, Brenda Gallimore, sister, Karen Argo and his parents, Hyatt and Odessa Gallimore, and step-son, David Gupton.
He is survived by his companion of thirteen years, Phyllis Wittschen; sister, Lanette Tysinger and spouse, John; brother-in-law, Tony Argo; step-daughter, Denise Grayson and spouse, Mike and step-son, Tommy Gupton and wife, Denise.
