Terry Yarborough Obituary
Terry W. Yarborough was born January 19, 1947 in Caldwell, Idaho to Marjorie and Wallace Yarborough. His grandparents, the McCoy's, were important influences during his formative years. He moved with his mother and new father, John Hiles to Renton, Washington where he would live throughout his school years. He graduated from Renton High in 1965 and entered the Air Force where he served as a Medic and was stationed at Holloman Air Force Base. While there he met and married Erva Jo Adkisson. They remained true to each other through 48 years.

In 1976, Terry elected to leave the Air Force and found his true vocation in electronics & computers. But his occupation (as much as he enjoyed the challenge) was simply a means to enjoy his true vocation-a "SERIAL HOBBYIST". From remote control cars, planes and helicopters to race cars, motorcycles, astronomy, hot air balloons, Scouting, Amateur Radio (where he was proud to be known as w5twy), music, trap shooting, restoring vintage cars, woodworking (to name a few) he loved to experiment and learn and he was famous for his 4th of July extravaganzas!

He is survived by his loving wife of the family home, sons Terry (Kassi) , and Dennis (Grace), his sister, Karen (Steve) Morris, his grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews . He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife's parents, Jay & Floye Adkisson and sadly by his son, Jeff and granddaughter, Amber.

Terry's final dream was to make it to his granddaughter Ashley's high school graduation. Since he cannot physically be present on that day the family has elected to hold a joint graduation party and celebration of Terry's life on Saturday May 19th starting at 11 AM at the Yarborough residence, 61 Foothills Lane, Tularosa, NM.

The family invites all friends to join them so that he can be present through shared memories at this celebration. The family respectfully requests no flowers.
