Terrance P Gahagan
Terry was born and raised in Davenport, Iowa, graduating from Assumption High School in 1975. He earned his mortuary science degree from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale and has been a funeral director for over 30 years. Funeral service came naturally for Terry, as his father is also a funeral director. Though his father is retired, Terry attributes his early interest in funeral service completely to his dad. "My dad helped me understand that funeral service is a great avenue of service to give back to the community," he says. "I knew I wanted to be a funeral director by the time I was 16 years old."
He and his wife, Mary, live in Davenport and are active members of Sacred City Church. Mary is a registered nurse. Together they have 2 daughters, Allison and Meryl, both recent college graduates.
