Terry Lee Francis of Stanfield was born April 10, 1954, in St. Helens, Oregon, the son of Gus and Bertha (Dinges) Francis. He passed away in Stanfield on Thursday, December 6, 2018, at the age of 64.
Terry grew up and attended grade school on Sauvie Island and high school in Scappoose, Oregon. He moved to the Hermiston area in 1976 where he has resided since.
He worked for C&B Livestock and Pioneer Implement for many years. But his favorite job, that he took so much pride in, was working as a livestock brand inspector for the state of Oregon for the last 20 years. He did it his way, while doing what he loved and gaining a whole new family ... his cattle family.
Terry enjoyed raising, showing and traveling the country to showcase his Corriente cattle, that he took so much pride in. He loved to team rope, help his grandkids with their show cattle, wild cow milking at the Pendleton Round-Up and admiring his herd he and Anna worked so hard for.
Terry married Anna Banzhof on June 21, 1996. He was so very loved and we will miss him every day.
He is survived by his wife, Anna; son RJ (Sandy) Francis; daughters Jenny (Justin) Estes and Jill (Bryce) McCallie; seven grandchildren: Hannah, Hallie, Logan, Cidney, Cameron, Royce and Reagan; sister Betty Hanson; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents.
A graveside service will be held at 1 p.m. on Sunday, December 16, 2018, at Pleasant View Cemetery near Stanfield. A celebration will follow at Double M Ranch sale barn, 30652 Stanfield Meadows Road, Stanfield, Ore.
