George Howard Terrell Jr., beloved father, brother and native son of Durham, passed away on May 6th at the age of 75.  

Nicknamed "Byrd" from birth, Mr. Terrell was raised in Durham's West End as the youngest of seven siblings.  Standing 6'3", he was known in his youth for his charming, enigmatic presence as well as his affection for fine white suits, 1950s Mercury automobiles and gospel music.

Although he worked various jobs, his true calling in this life was spreading the word of God.  He devoted much of his time to attending and guest preaching at a number of churches throughout Durham, in addition to studying the bible, singing and writing original gospel music.  

Mr. Terrell is survived by his two sisters, Elizabeth and Blanche, his son Alphonzo, daughter Sharon, several grand and great grandchildren as well as a large extended family. 

Welcome home Pops, we love and miss you!!
