Terry Lee Alcock
Terry Lee Alcock, 65 of Britton, passed away Monday, July 22, 2013, at ProMedica Herrick Hospital. Terry was born on July 20, 1948 in Tecumseh, Mich., the son of Orville Cecil and Hilah Jean (Pierce) Alcock.
Terry’s greatest pride and joy was his family. Terry founded and operated Alcock Drilling, Inc. in Britton for 43 years, as water well drilling was his passion. He also enjoyed collecting antique hit-n-miss gas engines, John Deere tractors and riding his Harley Davidson. Terry enjoyed spending time (talking) with his family and friends and will be greatly missed by all those who knew him.
Terry is survived by his significant other, Carol Rinehart; two sons Troy (Melanie) Alcock and Todd (Elizabeth) Alcock, both of Britton; a brother Gary (Sherry) Alcock of Clinton; a sister Judy Sturtevant of Camden, Mich; and four grandchildren: Hannah, Eva, Connor and Jaret. Terry is preceded in death by his parents and an infant sister.
Visitation will be held on Sunday, July 28, 2013 from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. at the Tecumseh Chapel of Handler Funeral Homes.
