Terry John Moff


Terry John Moff, beloved son of the late Kathleen Schaeffer Moff and Charles Moff, departed this world on September 13, 2023. Born in Randolph, Ohio on November 13, 1964, Terry's vibrant spirit touched the lives of those around him in remarkable ways.

Terry was a man of many passions and interests. He found solace on fishing trips, casting his line into the calm waters and communing with nature. Whether it was a solitary pursuit or a joyful gathering with friends and family, fishing held a special place in Terry's heart. His love for working in the yard was evident from the lush garden that bloomed under his careful tending. The satisfaction he derived from nurturing plants and creating serene outdoor spaces was unparalleled.

The crackling flames of a bonfire could always be found in Terry's company. These gatherings with loved ones were infused with laughter, storytelling, and a shared sense of belonging. Terry cherished every moment spent outdoors, finding joy in the simple pleasures of life. His favorite spots included the train tunnel where he felt an inexplicable connection to the echoes of history, Deer Creek where he would stroll along its banks lost in contemplation, Walborne Reservoir which offered tranquility amidst breathtaking views, Hartville where he found respite in quaint small-town charm, Rogers flea markets where unique treasures awaited discovery, and the bustling fairs that ignited his sense of wonder.

Terry's legacy extends beyond his hobbies and interests; it lives on through the lasting impact he had on his family and friends. His beloved son Nicholas was held close to his heart as they shared countless precious memories together. Although separated by distance now, their bond remains unbreakable.

In addition to his cherished son, Terry leaves behind two brothers: Dwayne Moff and Eldon Moff who stood by him through thick and thin. Their camaraderie was forged through shared experiences that only siblings can truly understand.

Terry's granddaughter Naomi brought immeasurable joy into his life. The love and warmth he poured into her blossomed into a cherished relationship that will forever be treasured.

Sherri Christian, Terry's fiancée, was his rock and confidante. Their love was a beacon of light that guided them through the ups and downs of life, illuminating the path before them.

Steven Christian, Terry's brother-in-law, was not just a relative but also a trusted friend. Their bond went beyond bloodlines and mirrored the depth of their shared experiences.

Linda Rice (Lance), Terry's sister-in-law, stood by his side through thick and thin. Her unwavering support gave him strength during difficult times.

Nellie Howard and Bobby DeLuca were family friends who shared not only laughter but also moments of profound understanding with Terry. Their friendship brought an irreplaceable warmth to his life.

Ken and Jenny Rogala were beloved family friends whose presence added an extra sparkle to Terry's days. Their unwavering loyalty and shared adventures made life even more vibrant.

Matt and Madison Rogala were family friends who brought excitement, joy, and countless unforgettable memories to Terry's life. Their bonds transcended friendship to become the fabric of chosen family.

Ray, CJ, Karen, LJ Scheiman were like siblings in spirit to Terry. They embarked on fishing trips together that held the promise of adventure in every cast. The shared camaraderie became an indelible part of Terry's journey.

Colt Lockhart was a dear family friend whose presence enriched Terry's life immeasurably. Together they found solace in each other's company during both challenging times and moments of celebration.

Marlenea, Nathan, and Sophia Wild formed an inseparable bond with Terry rooted in love and acceptance. Their connection was a testament to the enduring power of chosen family.

Terry's furbabies, Vern and Radar, were more than just pets; they were loyal companions who offered unwavering comfort and love. Their presence filled his home with warmth and happiness.

As we mourn the loss of Terry, we remember his infectious smile, his zest for life, and the genuine kindness that emanated from him. He touched the hearts of many with his unwavering love, unbreakable bonds, and a spirit that soared freely in nature's embrace.

Though Terry may no longer walk among us, his spirit will forever remain a guiding light in our lives. May the memories of our time together bring solace during this difficult moment.
