Terry James Brackenbury, 52, of Hamilton, Illinois, passed away on Wednesday, June 22, 2022, at Blessing Hospital in Quincy, Illinois.
Terry was born on May 2, 1970, in Chino Hills, California, the son of Harry Paul and Betty Jean (Kruckow) Brackenbury. He graduated from Hamilton High School in 1988, and he was united in marriage to Amy Lynn Wear on October 16, 1993. Terry later married Deborah “Debbie” (McCracken) Miller on July 4, 2021.
Terry was employed as a financial manager at various car dealerships in the area and worked at Mississippi Valley Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center as a CNA. He attended Anchor of Hope and Healing Streams Church in Keokuk. In his free time, he enjoyed spending time fishing and playing poker. Terry loved his family and his dogs Lucy and Hope.
Terry is survived by his wife Debbie of Hamilton; his son Andrew (Fiancé Leslie McDavid) Brackenbury of Chicago, Illinois; two daughters: Emma and Sophia Brackenbury of La Harpe, Illinois; two brothers Harry Paul (Kathie) Brackenbury and Dean (Ann) Forquer, both of Keokuk; and three sisters: Linda (Alan Chase) Brackenbury, Susan Brackenbury and Deborah Brackenbury, all of California.
Terry is preceded in death by his parents Harry Brackenbury, Betty Jean Brackenbury and Raymond Cady; and his sister Katherine Brackenbury.
