August 17, 1937 – February 8, 2019
Retired USAF Chief Master Sergeant Terry Osgood was finally reunited with his beloved bride on Friday, February 8, 2019. Terry passed peacefully at the home of his granddaughter, Riki Zammit, and her husband Eric, where he has lived the last four years. During those years he formed close and loving bonds with three of his great granddaughters, Emma, Anna and Lia, and was elated to learn that Riki and Eric are expecting another bundle of joy this summer.
Terry was born in Minneapolis, MN to the late Robert and Louise Osgood. He was the third born of five children. He is preceded in death by his older brothers, Robert “Bobby” Osgood and Richard “Dick” Osgood. He is survived by his younger siblings, Ruth and Donald “Donnie” Osgood. Terry is also survived by a host of nieces and nephews, and great nieces and great nephews.
Terry’s 38 year long commitment to the United States Air Force is second only to his 60 year long commitment to the love of his life, the late Delores June Osgood. The family will always remember the love and adoration with which he spoke to and of his cherished wife. Terry and “Dee” built a beautiful family together of four children. He is survived by daughters Teri Ann (Rick) Brown and Barbara Bergman, and sons Michael (Jana) Osgood and Timothy Osgood. He is preceded in death by daughter-in-love Michelle (Tim) Osgood. His children gave him a rather large family he was extremely proud of. He is survived by grandchildren Jack (Monica) Bergman, Shannon (Lee) Vial, Riki (Eric) Zammit, Jessica (Zain) Stillinger, Harley (Stephanie) Osgood, Ian Osgood, Jacob Osgood and John Osgood. His great grandchildren were his absolute pride and joy. He is survived by Lee Vial, Tyler Frickey, Michael Vial, Riley Stillinger, Anna Lacoste, Lia Lacoste, Emma Zammit, Jaxon Osgood, Bryce Osgood, Ansley Bergman, and Baby Zammit due in August.
Terry lived a long and fulfilled life, and his family is grateful for all the years they got to share with him. He was a dedicated patriot, loved model cars, loved building and fixing things, and all things chocolate. He loved his wife more than precious life itself. He loved his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren deeply. They were his greatest source of pride. His memory will live on in all who loved him. The family is very thankful for all of the love and support they’ve been shown in this difficult time. The immediate family will have a private memorial at a later date.

Terry took me under his wing as a young CES NCO from the mid-80s - 1995 at 926 FW. Taught me so many details which I surprising used to further my career as an Air Reserve Technician at NAS JRB New Orleans, then Selfridge ANG MI, and finally at MacDill AFB FL before retiring in 2015. As a side note, he also sold me his 78 Caprice Classic which we drove for several problem free years until buying our first new car. THANKS CHIEF TERRY OSGOOD
