The Glasgow Courier - Serving Proudly As The Voice Of Valley County Since 1913

Terry D. Fuhrmann


Terry D. Fuhrmann, age 81, of St. Marie, Mont., passed away on Sunday, Dec. 25, 2016, from an apparent heart attack while driving home.

He was born on Oct. 11, 1935, to Lille Walker and Kon Fuhrmann. He spent most of his life in the agriculture industry, and also worked for the Glasgow School District for many years. He also served in the Army Reserves as a cook. He loved fishing, mechanic work and building small projects in his spare time.

He married Denise Birkoski on June 6, 1970. They raised five children on his farm in the "north country" before moving to Glasgow. He worked many different jobs including Arnie's Electric and the Glasgow Meat Packing Plant before becoming a custodian at the Glasgow High School. After he retired from the Glasgow school system, he started working as a hired hand on Herb Sand's farm. Farming was his passion, and he enjoyed going to work every day.

He loved many things, but most of all, he loved his family. He was a devoted husband and father, and he was always willing to talk or lend an ear when it was needed most. He always made time for them and tried to help any way he could.

He enjoyed fishing, working on his 1962 GMC pickup, and spending time with his wife watching Matlock and Walker Texas Ranger.

Survivors include his wife, Denise (Birkoski) Fuhrmann; five children, Larry, Duane, Tammi, Bonnie and Terry Jr; his twin brother, Larry; his brother Archie; one sister, Lorraine; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Kon and Lillie; and three brothers, Konrad, William and Verlin.

Funeral Services were held Tuesday, Jan. 3, at the Assembly of God Church in Glasgow, followed by burial in the Highland Cemetery.

Terry Delbert Fuhrmann was a very kind man, and will be missed greatly by his family and friends.
