Terry Lunceford, 62, passed away peacefully at his brother's home on Wednesday, April 4, 2018.

Terry graduated from Calhoun City High School in 1972, and was a member of Adaton Baptist Church in Starkville. Among his many hobbies were cooking and gardening, but those who knew Terry will always remember his love for the outdoors. He was an avid fisherman, and fished in many Bass tournaments. He also fished professionally on the Red Man Series and the Coors Series. He was very sociable, and he had such a caring heart. He loved his family and friends, and was a father figure to many. He has left a lifetime of memories to be cherished forever in the hearts of all who knew him.
