Terry Len Degregorio, 58, of Fairbanks passed away on April 11, 2021 after battling stage 4 liver cancer. Terry was born in Norfolk, VA on November 12, 1962 and has lived in Alaska, including Anchorage and Seward for 30 years settling in Fairbanks as an assistant store manager at Ester Gas. Terry was an adventurous spirit and a welcomed face in many communities across Alaska, His hobbies included: turning wrenches under a hood, watching football and stopping in at the favorite watering holes. Work hard, play hard was the motto, 80s music was the sound, love and acceptance for everyone was the vibe.
Terry was uplifting to everyone around him, and you would always walk away learning a thing or two and with a boost of confidence. He was a charitable man; anyone that knew him would describe times he gave the clothes off his back for a stranger. We all aspire to be thankful, exciting, robust, responsible, and youthful just like Terry when we grow up. He will be greatly missed by all.
Terry is survived by his mother Lilly Barringer of Jacksonville, FL, sister Lelani Barringer-Francisco bottoms of Hawaii, girlfriend Ellen Barger or Fairbanks, AK, daughters: Tiffany Chuitt, Ashley Chuitt, and Clarice Sheldon all of Anchorage, AK, son Conner Jacquay, daughter Cassidy Jacquay, son Caleb Brooks, and daughter Cayleigh Brooks. He was preceded in death by his father Fred S. Barringer Sr. and brother Fred M. Barringer Jr.
There will be a Celebration of Life in Anchorage Monday April 26th at 7pm at the Kaloa Buildings.
