Terry Pryse, born November 18th 1952 to Louis and Marge (Wanty) Pryse entered eternal life on August 14th 2021 after a courageous battle with cancer. Terry was a 1971 graduate of Neenah High School and worked at Kimberly Clark before he retired. On April 4th 1987, Terry married his best friend Lisa (Schierl) of Menasha and had two daughters; Kelsey and Kayla.
Terry enjoyed listening to music and enjoyed collecting various albums of assorted genres through all of the decades. He would often be caught up in the middle of the night making mixed tapes for his family and friends while jamming out to the music. Terry was also an avid baseball fan. He loved reading up on all of the stats, no matter the year or the team. He never missed either watching or listening to both the Milwaukee Brewers or the Chicago Cubs. Although he would never admit it, we think that he was more of a Cubs despite being born and raised in Wisconsin. If it was not baseball season, he would be cheering on the Green Bay Packers or watching NASCAR with his brothers. “Did you know?”, was a phrase heard frequently, if not daily, followed by a random fact. Terry loved knowing senseless information and facts that would always make someone smile, or roll their eyes after he told them.
Terry is survived by his daughters; Kelsey (Patrick) DuBois and Kayla Pryse (David Pietila). He is further survived by his sisters; Amy (Joe) Vassallo, Patti (Rick) VerKuilen, brothers; Dick Pryse and Matt Pryse. Mother-in-Law; Delores Boudry. Brothers and sisters in law; Mike (Barb) Schierl, Dan (Katie) Schierl, and John (Kat) Schierl as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Terry is preceded in death by his wife Lisa and parents; Louis and Marge Pryse.
