Obituary for Terry Albert Armstrong

Terry Armstrong, 75, of Highland, Michigan passed away on Thursday, August 4, 2022.

Terry was born in Fort Fairfield, Maine on October 11, 1946 to the late Bernard and Jean Armstrong.  He married the love of his life, Nancy Bessen on July 15, 1966.  He has lived in Highland, Michigan since 1972.  

Terry worked in construction as an operating engineer for his entire career before his retirement.  He belonged to the Local 324 Operating Engineers.  Following retirement, he enjoyed his time with his family, taking cruises, helping family on home projects, and spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  His love language was gift giving and acts of service. He never showed up to see his grandchildren empty handed. He was the one to call who could fix anything or always had an answer for a problem with your car.  He was known for extravagant Christmas displays and spent weeks preparing for the “turning on of the lights” which was a much anticipated event every Thanksgiving. Although his personality was quiet and reserved, he highly valued social events with family and friends. He never missed a family event or birthday gathering. He loved his weekly breakfast with his siblings. He was the host of over 50 people every Christmas Eve and it will never be the same without him. Those who knew him at church will always remember him as the snack man, because he was often surrounded by kids as they waited to receive a hug and a treat from the special bag they made for him.    

Beloved husband of the late Nancy for 43 years.  Loving father of Angie Cusick (Steve), Dan Armstrong (Jackie), and Sarah Thurmond (Jeremy).  Devoted grandfather of Benjamin, Robert, Kyle, David, Hannah, Rebekah, Levi, Jessikah, Aaron, and Nathan.  Proud great-grandfather of Lilly, Mara, and Dathan.


Visitation will be held on Sunday, August 7, 2022 from 2:00pm-6:00pm at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home 404 E. Liberty St. Milford, MI 48381.

A funeral service will be held on Monday, August 8, 2022 at 11:00am at the funeral home.

Burial will take place next to his beloved Nancy at Highland Cemetery in Highland, Michigan.
