Obituary for Terrence R. Coppage

Celebrating the life of Terry Coppage
Terry was born September 12, 1953 in St. Louis, Missouri to Joe and Anne Coppage and was the youngest of three children. He began his schooling at Holy Family in St. Louis and graduated from St. Mary's in Little Rock, Arkansas before attending the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Terry married the love of his life Debby in Tulsa on November 20, 1976. Terry was quite the entrepreneur over the years. He worked in the small loan, vending/gaming and restaurant industries. Terry also owned several businesses, including Rock Island and The Train Station, before focusing his time on his current career,, as a political humorist. Terry was a drummer as a young man and always enjoyed music. He and Debby often traveled to attend the concerts of some of their favorite groups. Travel, mostly to Western states, was one of Terry's favorite things to do with Debby by his side. Northern California weather was an enjoyable destination spot as well as the mountains of Colorado and New Mexico. He also enjoyed writing, discussing politics and hanging out at home with Debby and their cats, Rusty and Dax. Terry's motto was "have a good time every day" and he did that most of the time. He was a kind, caring and protective husband who frequently told his wife how much he loved his life, living with her and their kitties and writing the web page. He was a confident, tenacious man who maybe had a little impatience in him but used those qualities to voice his views on truth and equality and provide a platform for like-minded people.

Although Terry's leukemia had not previously had a major impact on his health, he passed away suddenly, Wednesday, March 5, 2014, from pneumonia and flu complications. He is survived by his loving wife Debby, his brother Mike and wife Gayle of St. Louis, Missouri, his sister Patty and husband Wally Sieges of St. Louis; his brothers-in-law, Jeff Stephens and wife Angie of Tulsa, and Todd Stephens and wife Breanna of Houston, Texas; several nieces and nephews, several great nieces and nephews, and many friends. Memorial service will be Sunday, March 9, 2014, at 12:30 pm, in the Floral Haven Chapel. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Terry’s memory at F&M Bank, acct: #9281096; 1330 South Harvard Avenue, Tulsa, OK 74112.
