On Aug. 25, 2021, Daniel (Danny) Lon Terry laid down his welding torch
and is now blessed more than we can imagine at his new eternal
residence in heaven. You may know Danny and his wife Sandy through
their business - D & S Welding. Many have experienced the massive love
Danny has shared with his family, friends and community,

Danny was born to Lon B. Terry and Brenda Joy (Bowers), in Kingman,
Arizona on July 2, 1975. Danny then grew up in Bullhead City, Arizona.
A favorite treat was diving into the Colorado River. He grew up to be
a handsome young man, full of personality. He took great joy in
devouring his beloved grandma Bertha’s delicious baking. So did many
others in our community. Life for Danny proved to be very hard and
dealt him some serious blows. He spent most of his adolescence/young
adult life incarcerated. His grandmother Bertha Bowers faithfully
prayed for her grandson every day of her life and was able to reap the
fruit of her and others’ prayers before she graduated to heaven in
2016. Their love for one another ran deep and was precious.

Danny had to come from behind but was determined to live a new life,
and build his dreams. This process began after he accepted Jesus
Christ as his Savior and met and married Sandy Lingenfelter in 2009.
He earned his associate degree in welding at Mohave Community College.
He had great appreciation for his welding instructors. One math
instructor at MCC described him as the dark horse far behind the rest,
but to her delight he ended up coming in first place in her class.
Danny had a passion for welding and became an excellent
fabricator/welder. He was known for his business integrity. Danny was
very grateful he had become a part of Sandy’s family. (Psalm 68:4-5)
He greatly appreciated and loved all of them deeply. He has also left
behind two beloved African Mastiffs, Sadie and Beauty.

Danny now joins his grandparents, Harley and Bertha Bowers.

Danny has left behind his best friend and wife, Sandy (Lingenfelter)
Terry (Kingman); his mother, Brenda Joy Johnson (Kingman); sister
Heather Dawn Wright (of Kingman); a nephew and niece; his Aunt Ruth
Ann and Uncle Trey Gordon (Kingman); one cousin Brandee Proffit, her
husband Pete and children (Kingman); along with many very dear friends
whom he loved, and who also poured into, supported and prayed for him.
Danny and Sandy have experienced Christ’s love through their church
family at the Hilltop Foursquare Church and many others in the Body of
Christ throughout our community. God used Danny to touch and bless
many lives.

In lieu of flowers we would encourage you to continue doing whatever
God is leading you to do, as Danny has said “we need to be part of the
solution by His love and grace” in our struggling world.

There will be a graveside service for family and friends at the
Mountain View Cemetery, 1301 Stockton Hill Road, Kingman, Arizona on
Tuesday, Sept. 7, 10 a.m.

Danny’s Celebration of Life will be at Hope City Church, 1850 Gates
Ave. Friday, Sept. 17, 10 a.m. Following the service everyone is
invited to Metcalfe Park (314 W. Beale St.) for a family and friends
reception/BBQ from noon to 3 p.m.

Sandy sends big hugs and prayers to all who are hurting.
