Terry Wayne Clarkson, 55, of Tipton, entered eternity on December 24, 2021. Arrangements are currently pending with Fry Funeral Home in Tipton. Terry was cremated and will be laid to rest beside his mother, Wanda Ford, in the Rochester Cemetery at a later date. Online condolences may be shared at www.fryfuneralhome.com.
Terry was born on October 26, 1966 in the Burlington Medical Center in Burlington, Iowa. Terry graduated from Tipton High School and married Sarah Ogden, they later divorced. Terry graduated from Hamilton Technical College with a Electrical Mechanical Technology and Electronics Maintenance and Repair Technology EMT diploma. Terry loved race cars and anything that had to do with racing. He volunteered on various racing teams helping build and maintain the cars, worked for HWH for 14 years as a machinist and finally worked for La’James in maintenance helping to repair and adjust items as needed. Terry’s needs were few and although he found life to be challenging at times he could always seem to smile and laugh when you least expected it. Rest in peace with God and your mother, Wanda.
Terry is survived by his daughters, Caitlyn and Alyssa Clarkson, sisters; Sandy Knouse, Pam Woode and Tammy O’Leary; his step-father, Herb Ford; and many nieces and nephews.
