Terry D Davidson, age 62, passed away at his home in Oneonta on Thursday, May 30, 2019, ending his battle with cancer.

He was born December 13, 1956 in Oneonta to Stella Sprague and Donald Davidson.

Terry was a wonderful father and an all-around good guy who was loved dearly by many. He was a jack-of-all-trades and an odd job enthusiast who loved the outdoors. Terry worked for Schwan’s for several years, where his kind and friendly personality made him a favorite among customers. He then went on to become self-employed with his scrap business and lawn-care service before working for Corning Inc. for the past 5 years. Terry was a hardworking man with a big heart and a great sense of humor. He will be dearly missed but never forgotten.

He is survived by his loving partner of 16 years, Joan Brady; sons Nathan and Adam; step-children Joseph, Jennifer, and Paige; his mother Stella Sprague; sisters Cheryl (Tracey) Matthews and Betsy (Michael) Gray; and step-siblings Doug Sprague and Sandy Spruetels; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, grandchildren and beloved friends.

Terry was predeceased by his father Donald Davidson.

A memorial service in celebration of Terry’s life will be held on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at 11am at Treadwell United Methodist Church, 68 Church Street Treadwell, NY 13846. Refreshments will follow.

I am sorry to read of Terry's death. He was a great employee at my Otego sawmill (Pierces New Horizon Veneer)in the early 1980's. Terry was easy going, a joy to be around and very reliable and knowledgable. I thought his funeral was this afternoon so I am missing it as I type this. Wish Terry were there when I was also an employee of Corning, Inc. in Oneonta. Good guy. Sorry to hear of his passing. Charlie
