Celebrating The Life Of Loved Ones

Terry Wayne Almond

Terry Wayne Almond, 71, of Richfield passed away on September 8, 2020 at Tucker Hospice House in Kannapolis, NC.  A private memorial service will be held by his family due to Covid-19 restrictions.  A public celebration of life service will be held at a later date. 

Terry was born in Stanly County to the late Pearson Ellis Almond and Betty Hatley Almond.  He retired from the United States Postal Service as a Mail Carrier.  He was passionate about his kids and grandkids and he enjoyed spending time with them whenever possible.  Mr. Almond was a member at Mt. Zion Lutheran Church in Richfield.  Terry was a die-hard Green Bay Packers fan and he also enjoyed fishing, especially at the outer banks.  He loved Portsmouth Island fishing and called it his “little slice of heaven.”  In his off time, Terry spent many hours working on his farm.  He served on the Richfield Town Council Board for over 30 years and he was the park commissioner for Richfield.

Mr. Almond is survived by his wife of 51 years, June Cranford Almond; son Kevin Almond (Stacy) of Richfield; daughter Tara Barajas (Ivan) of Matthews; grandchildren: Zachary Almond, Seth Almond, and Gaby Barajas; sisters: Marilyn Tucker and Paula Almond both of Millingport; and brother: Mark Almond of Concord. 

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Mt. Zion Lutheran Church at PO Box 86, Richfield, NC 28137.

    My deepest sympathies for the Almond family. On the many times that I saw Terry, he was a very kind person and like a big brother to me. I am lifting your family up in my prayers. Phil. 1:3

    i remember Terry for his unique sense of humor. When he was the mailman he delivered the mail to my mother J.V. Culp. My mother ordered a lot of vitamins and supplements through the mail. Terry would bring them to my mothers back door and he would tell her that he had brought her a supply of birth control pills. Mother loved to talk about this and considered to be really amusing. May God’s peace and His presence comfort the family during this time of sadness.

    Terry was a good friend to all who knew him and he is already missed. Thoughts, prayers and love to the family. I lost my grandson on 9/11, 5 years ago and can somewhat understand your pain and loss.

    June and family, my sympathies to you all. I don’t think Terry met a stranger. He was well liked with his personality and that award winning smile.. May the Lord comfort you now and the days to follow.

    June, Marilyn, Paula, Mark and all the children and grandchildren, I am so saddened to hear about Terry. He and I had a very close bond in high school at North Stanly. Whenever we saw each other we would always say “Hey Cuz!” Through the years we lost touch but Marilyn put us in contact by phone with each other after my Aunt Ann’s funeral. It was so good to talk to him and we planned to have a dinner date sometime when Larry and I were back at our lake house (now living in Roxboro). What a missed opportunity!!! Sending prayers and love for all the family.

Stanly overwhelmingly met or exceeded our family’s expectations. Family and friends both expressed how thoughtful, caring and professional they were. We’re glad you’re in Locust!

We never felt hurried or rushed in any way even though they had other funerals that day.  Everyone at Stanly Funeral Home made us feel like we were family and did everything they could for us in this most trying time in our lives.

Everyone went out of their way to make sure that every detail was good with me.  Their kindness, patience and love they show is superior.  Stephen Aldridge and his ENTIRE staff are the best.

-DBN

The whole staff was wonderful but Stephen Aldridge was excellent, even sending us a note one month later.
