Terrell Herron

Terrell Herron, age 90 of Tuscumbia, Alabama passed away April 30, 2024 at his home surrounded by his loving family and friends. He served in the United States Army, retired from Reynolds Alloys after working 38 years and was a member of First Baptist Church Colbert Heights where he spent many hours working on the construction of the family ministry center that now serves as the sanctuary.

Our Dad was a hard worker, had a wonderful sense of humor and loved helping others. He enjoyed camping & any time that could be spent with his family and friends especially the “motor home gang” and his church family which was pretty much the same people. He was an avid Alabama fan. He loved all things Alabama & never missed watching a game and never missed an opportunity to say Roll Tide! Wonderful memories were made with our Dad that will be cherished by everyone that loved him.

Visitation will be Saturday, May 4, 2024 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at Colbert Memorial Chapel, Tuscumbia, AL. Funeral service will begin at 3:00 p.m. with Bro. Gerald James officiating. Burial will follow in Colbert Memorial Gardens. Pallbearers will be Jared Hamm, Jason Hamm, Joel Hamm, Alex Betts, John Jaco and Brent Bratton.

Mr. Herron is survived by his daughters, Valerie (Joe) Romans and Vanessa (Tim) Pinkard; grandsons, Jared (Crystal) Hamm, Jason Hamm and Joel Hamm; great grandchildren, Alex & Alyssa; and very special friend, Georgia McDuffey.
