Terrance Darnell Burgess, age 55, was born June 4, 1964, in Toledo, OH, to Elaine Pirtle and Raymond Burgess. Terrance, also known as Terry, T-Bone and Bird Man, departed this life on Friday, September 6, 2019, at UT Medical Center, surrounded by his family.

Terry graduated from DeVilbiss High School, where he had many fond memories.One of those fond memories included being a part of a singing group with his cousins called The Dynamic III. This group formed when they were in grade school. They entered and won many talent shows! Terry loved singing. His favorite artists were Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston.

Terry moved to South Carolina in 1987. He met and married his wife Phylene Burgess. He had four children; twins, Whitney and Terrance, Brianna and Keyna. Anyone who knew Terry, knew that he talked about his kids all the time and he loved them immensely. The love that he had for them was immeasurable.

One of Terry's proudest moments in his life was becoming the owner of a Dry Cleaners when he lived in South Carolina. Terry also enjoyed fishing. He would spend hours on the fishing bank. He also loved his family and reminded them every chance he got. Getting together with family to sing, dance, play cards, and have adult beverages was always a great time. Terry loved the Pittsburgh Steelers and he made it known to any Browns fans. Terry was also known as a mama's boy, and he wore that title with pride! Terry didn't make a move, a step or decision without his mama's consent, thoughts or just for her knowledge. He called her everyday, several times a day. Those phone calls and conversations are missed already. Terry was also very generous and giving; when he had it, you had it.

Terry was preceded in death by his father, Raymond Burgess; uncle, Jesse Gilmer; grandparents, Beulah and James Gilmer, Bertha Wilson Moffett, Luke Wilson and Tommie Moffett; and step-fathers, Wayne Pirtle and Charles Love.

He leaves to cherish his memories, wife, Phylene Burgess; kids, Keyna Brown, Terrance Burgess, Whitney Burgess, and Brianna Burgess; mom, Elaine Pirtle; brother, Anthony Wilson (Renee); sisters, Karen Simpson (Lewis), Tammy Burgess, Nicole Burgess, and Janice Burgess; grand kids, Bryson, Kasen, Imani, and Zion; aunts, uncle, nieces, nephews, and many close cousins.

If Terry could say one last thing to all of us it would be: "I Love You, Glad Ya Mine".
