Guido Patrick Terzo, Jr., age 77 of Fairfield, passed away on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 in Humble, TX while receiving cancer treatments. He was born on May 9, 1942 in Pittsburgh, PA, the son of the late Guido Vincent Terzo, Sr. and Rose (D’amico) Terzo. After graduating from Hamilton Catholic in 1960, Guido joined the U.S. Navy where he served faithfully for four years. He was a boxer in the Navy and also won an Ironman Competition while serving, beating out the entire 7th fleet. During his time in the Navy, he served as a Radarsman, which lead him into the electrician field upon returning home. Guido was an electrical contractor for 20 years before owning and operating his own business, Terzo Electric, for over 30 years where he was a master electrician. He was a member of IBEW #648, the Elks, the Eagles, Knights of Columbus, the Oldies but Goodies Car Club, and had been a member of the YMCA for decades, taking his son with him every day after work before heading to the local buffet for dinner, at least the days Tony was with him. Guido was also a huge Ohio State fan, loved the outdoors, especially camping and fishing in Brookville, and had a special bond with his one and only granddaughter, who he always bragged about painting his nails for him. He had a zest for life and was enjoying his retirement with his friends, including attending live music concerts whenever he could. No matter where Guido went, whether it was down the road or across the country, people knew the name Guido Terzo, which says a lot about his character and the type of man he was – he will truly be missed. Those left to cherish his memory are his fiancé, Ada Maria, who remained right by his side through the entire duration of his cancer treatment; children, Anthony Terzo, Elise Ainslie, and Aimee Terzo; granddaughter, Avery Ainslie; siblings, Anita (Robby) Robinson, Dante (Andrea) Terzo, and Alicia (Berry) Terzo; nephews and nieces, Jeff Terzo, Justin Terzo, Josh Terzo, Joseph Terzo, Antonio Vincent Terzo, Renata, and Gregory Robinson; and loving cousin, Johnny Terzo. He was preceded in death by his parents. Visitation will be held from 5pm until 8pm on Friday, November 15, 2019 at Webb Noonan Kidd Funeral Home, Ross Avenue at South “D” Street, Hamilton. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11am on Saturday, November 16, 2019 at St. Peter in Chains Catholic Church, 382 Liberty Avenue, Hamilton. Interment with Military Honors will follow in St. Mary’s Cemetery. Condolences may be left for the family at www.Webb-Noonan.com

Guido and I grew up together. We were first cousins. We had wonderful times, together. I was three years older the Guido.

Our parents would visit our grandparents, they were born in
Italy.
Since I was the oldest of my cousin Guido and my siblings, it was up to me to take the younger family members to the movie theatre, so that our mothers could visit our grandparents without a lot of noise from the younger ones.

I can remember, Guido sitting by me. I was chewing gum. He looked up at me and said, You chew gum, just like mommy. Funny for some of the things one remembers. He was such a cute & nice little boy. I have many more terrific memories of Guido, especially after we were grown up.
He was such a wonderful man, very loving, giving and just an all around good person.

I wish we could be sitting at the theatre together again, but my best hope and prayer is that one day when it is my turn to leave my life, here on this earth that we will meet in heaven.

I give thanks to God that I had my dear number one cousin was in my life for quite a while. I still will love and miss him until I see him in heaven.

Guido was a first cousin of mine. He was one of the most wonderful human beings in this world. Always giving and loving. We grew up together. We lived nearby with other family members. Guido was a few years younger than me. He was my very favorite cousin. I was the oldest of a few of my cousins and siblings. His mother & my mother would visit our Italian grandparents. I would have the job of taking my sister and brother including cousin Guido to the nearby movie theatre, so that our parents could visit our grandparents without children running around. Guido would always sit by me. I remember that I was chewing gum, Guido looked at me and told me that I chewed gum just like his mommy. I was 14 years old, at the time. He was so funny and cute, coming up with that. Those were such wonderful times. After the movie was over, then we would head back to our parents & grandparents. We had some time to visit our grandparents before our parents would round us up to go home. I will never forget all the many wonderful times that I had with my dear cousin Guido. He was always a joy to be around. I loved him dearly. At age 80, I remember so many terrific times that I had with my dear cousin Guido. He passed recently and I hope and pray that when it my time to leave this world, that we will meet again, in Heaven.

Guido was a first cousin of mine. We were always very close. As children, I was one of the oldest. Our grandparents lived close. Guido's mother and my mother would visit our Italian grandparents. They lived nearby. Since I was the oldest, I was the one who would take Guido, my sister and my brother to the nearby movie theatre. This was so that our mothers could visit our grandparents , without having the children running around the house. I really enjoyed taking them to the theatre. Funny how certain memories stick. I liked chewing gum. Guido was sitting by me in the theatre, looked up at me and said. " You chew gum, just like my mommy does." Don't know why that sticks with me after many years of the past. At the time I was 13 years old. I am 80 years old and still remember that. I will always love and remember him. We hand many wonderful times from childhood to adults. I know that I will see him in heaven, when it is my time to leave this world. He was a terrific child and then a wonderful man, who I will forever love..

On behalf of my in-laws, Emilio and Otilia Fernandez and the rest of the Fernandez family, I extend our deepest sympathies on the loss of Guido. For many years he was a kind, funny, knowledgeable and dependable help to us, and his beautiful obituary lovingly captured his dynamic personality. Rarely did I call him that I wasn't in a state of panic over a troubling electrical issue, but he was always calm and prompt, leaving us with a safe repair as well as a story of a recent adventure or a proud family accomplishment. We pray that good memories will bring your family peace at this time. Eternal rest grant unto him, Oh Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace.

. My sweet sister Ada Maria introduced us to Guido and our lives were better for having known him. He was always happy to see you and genuinely cared for everyone. He was one of a kind and will be forever missed.

Guido and I ran for years up at the YMCA in Hamilton . Nobody could pass us on the track. He was a great runner. Super nice and always an upbeat guy.

I've known Guido since I was born...………..he was my older cousin. Wow, what a wonderful human being. We became much closer the past, many years as I was able to learn more about my crazy, loving, good-hearted, cousin. Me and my lady, Cathy, loved Guido deeply and will hold him in our hearts, forever. Our love and support, also, go out to Guido's loving partner, Ada. Words cannot describe the selfless love and tenderness she showed during her time with Guido. She will, forever, be a part of our family.
Guido is now at peace with the Lord by his side.
We love you, Cuz.
