Terry Knisley, 49, of Urbana, Ohio went to be with the Lord on Sunday, November 21, 2021 in his home.

Terry was born September 2, 1972 in Urbana, Ohio the son of the late Clark and Patricia (Kitchen) Knisley. Terry was a 1990 graduate of Urbana High School. He was an avid fan of The Ohio State Buckeyes and Miami Dolphins. Terry was truly the most kind, tender hearted person. Terry loved all the individuals with developmental disabilities that he worked with and they loved him. This was his passion, not a job. He most recently was employed with AM/PM staffing at the Hall Company in Urbana doing screen printing. Terry loved his children. They were the light of his life. Things may not have been easy but not a day went by that they were not in his thoughts. As for his wife, Alyssa, she was his other half, his soulmate and best friend. The way he looked at her she truly felt the love and others could see it. Their love will remain, ALWAYS and FOREVER.

Terry is survived by his wife, Alyssa Knisley; daughters, Sophia and Ayana Knisley and sons, Elijah Knisley, Dereck Dunhum (Kylee Walls) and Trenton (Kassidy) Dunhum; sisters, Tamara Knisley, Tina Knisley; brother, Timothy (Laurie Hayden) Knisley as well as several nieces, nephews and extended family and his furbabies, Chai and Kaldi.

He is preceded in death by his parents; grandparents, Clyde (Annabelle) Kitchen and Richard (Bertha) Knisley.

A gathering of family and friends will be held from 2-5 p.m. on Sunday, November 28, 2021 in VERNON FUNERAL HOME, Urbana, Ohio. Funeral service will follow at 5:00 p.m. in the funeral home with Pastor Mimi Ault officiating.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the family in care of the funeral home.

I met Terry while working at the Hall Company before I had left .I had the chance to get to know him in that brief time. He was always smiling and talking about his wife to be. How excited he was to be getting married to her. You could tell he adored her and loved his children. He was a very nice person that I am glad to have known. I am still in shock like many probably are. I feel for his wife & family. Thinking of you all in this sad time! Sincerely, Kristen& family.
