Terry Lynn St. George – April 17, 2017

Terry Lynn St. George, 68, of New Philadelphia, died unexpectedly, Monday, April 17, 2017 in Union Hospital at Dover.

A son of the late John St. George and Marjorie (Johnson) Stevens, Terry was born in Union Hospital at Dover, Ohio on July 1, 1948.

He was a 1966 graduate of Tusky Valley High School and briefly attended Kent State University prior to joining the United States Army and honorably serving his country as a Chaplain’s Assistant.

Following his discharge from the Army, Terry began his studies in the medical field but found his life passion to be music. For the past 50 years, he played at many local venues and was a part of Velvet Crest, American Grease, the duo Garbrandt & St. George, and most recently, The Next. He also performed a great deal as a solo artist. For the past six years, he has enjoyed being a driver for Horizons, Inc. His favorite job, however, was being grandpa and babysitting his grandson, Sylis.

He will be missed by his wife, Revecka (Ridgway) St. George, whom he married on March 29, 1988; their children, Terry St. George, Jr. and Greer (Travis) Llewellyn all of New Philadelphia; his grandson, Sylis Llewellyn; an expected grandchild due in September; his sister, Marla Gordon of Worthington, Ohio and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles.

In addition to his parents, Terry was preceded in death by a brother, John “Butch” St. George and a nephew, Greg Gordon.

A memorial service is being planned for a later date. Cremation has been cared for by Geib’s Tuscarawas Valley Crematory.
