Terry G. Hix
October 11, 1941 – March 15, 2020
A giver of all and taker of nothing, Terry G. Hix began his journey here on earth on October 11, 1941 and ending it on March 15, 2020. This man lived a full life filled with family, love, laughter and travels.
Growing up in Van Alstyne, Texas he was a business owner there after receiving a Bachelor’s degree from the University of North Texas.
Terry had the natural talent and personality.to make friends no matter the situation and his smile was contagious to those around him. He was able to cheer everyone up by just smiling and finding something to say that was complimentary. He was a man of many words and many stories. A man with simple tastes of wide brimmed baseball caps, starched collared shirts, shorts and tennis shoes he would step out of the box especially on Halloween when he would dress in hilarious costumes and laugh that laugh that won’t be forgotten by all that have heard it.
A few of Terry's favorite things were collecting anything and everything as long as he could negotiate a good price, his mother’s home made caramel pie, dogs, long walks, books relating to World War II, Monday lunches with his mother and we must not forget to mention doughnuts! He loved his doughnuts! As mentioned, Terry was an avid collector and always had room for one more boat motor, gas pump, knife, hatchet, hardware, gas sign and old guns to mention a few. He could find value in almost anything, if the price was right!
Terry and the love of his life and wife of 25 wonderful years, Sylvia loved to RV especially with their special group of friends. One of his most favorite places to visit was Lake City, Colorado where family would often travel to meet them and spend time. He didn’t have to have a special place or reason to be with family. He adored his daughter, Terri Anne (Hix) Fox, his son Kevin Hix and wife Catherine, stepdaughter Celine Bordelon and husband Rob, stepson Joseph Perez and husband E.J., stepson Adam Perez and wife Karla, grandchildren Chessney Wehunt, Evan Goodman, Casey Goodman, Caeden Hix, Kel Hix and Cidney Hix, Sophia Bordelon, Tessa Bordelon, and Gianna Perez, as well as a great grandchild due in October. Never playing favorites he instead made each one feel special. Also surviving is the Mother of his two children, Sandy Hynds.
What a glorious reunion in heaven it must have been as he was met by his father, Elbert Wayne Hix, his mother Bessie Marie (Wise) Hix and his sister Brenda Hix.
Terry was a truly great man whose impact will forever be felt by the family and friends that loves him dearly and knows they will see each other again. He was a selfless man whose passing has left a hole that only he can fill. His ability to love, sacrifice, provide, support and forgive will forever be lessons to all he knew.
The Celebration of Life has been postponed at the Hix family home. In lieu of flowers contributions should be made to your favorite charity or shop for your own treasure to add to your personal collection. Just make sure you negotiate a good price as you know Terry would!

Rose, Katie and I first met Terry, with a smile on his face, at Henson Creek RV Park in Lake City, CO. He was telling us how he acquired Keeper. We knew right then that Terry had a big heart. How lucky was Keeper? We enjoyed many ATV rides and picnic lunches in those mountains. There were the July 4th parades, fireworks, craft fairs, cookouts and of course Terry’s Gold Hill story about Cy with a Sty in his left eye. We still LOL when we think about that story.
Rose and I saw Terry in Van Alstyne a while back and of course we were taken to the barn to see some of Terry’s recent bargains. Terry seemed to remember each purchase like it was yesterday.
Terry will live on thru his Family, he will be missed, but we have nothing but great memories........thank you Terry Hix

We were camped with Terry and Sylvia in Lake City once and asked them over for Belgium waffles. I have a great receipt and they accepted. Well usually everybody eats 2 because they are big a covered in strawberries whipped cream and syrup, quite filling. We had coffee and bacon to. Anyway I ask if anyone wanted another and Terry spoke up and said well yeah I’ll take two more. He finished and asked me didn’t you say you cut Bobs hair and I said yes while we travel I do. So he said then I’m ready for my hair cut. We laughed so much and I did not ruin his hair either.
Also I have a boat motor hanging on my Christmas tree one of two I bought in New Hampshire on an RV trip with them and gave him the other. Bob and I loved Terry and Sylvia from hello!
