Terry Lee Wasser, 62, of Temple, PA, passed away Friday, August 6th, 2021, at his residence, surrounded by his family, after a courageous battle with lymphoma. Born in West Reading, PA, he was the son of the late Franklin and Venita (Arthur) Wasser. Terry was a loving and devoted husband to Kathy (Gensemer) Wasser whom he was married to for 35 years.

He was previously employed by Georgia Pacific, and his first job as an electrician was at Lessig Electric.

Terry enjoyed working on cars and attending car shows with his Mustang and the love of his life, Kathy. In addition, he liked listening to heavy metal music especially Metallica; traveling; and spending time with friends and family, including his beloved cat Scully.
