Terry L. Goschey, 53, of West Bend passed away Monday, Dec. 30, 2013, at

loved most, his wife and children.
He was born April 9, 1960, in West Bend. Terry graduated from West Bend
East High School in 1978. On July 9, 1983, he married the love of his
life, Joanne Wamsley. Together they had two wonderful children, Timm and
Brittany. Terry started a career in tool and die, at the time of his
death he was employed as a moldmaker engineer and tool room supervisor
at Ci-Dell Plastics in Mequon.
Terry was very active and loved playing golf and riding his motorcycle.
Some of his fondest memories were of vacations taken with his wife and
children. He especially enjoyed trips to Walt Disney World, including
his most recent trip in August. Terry was a very kind-hearted person and
he always enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest. He was loved and
respected by most everyone he met and will be deeply missed by many.

Portland, Ore., and Brittany (Cory) Graham, of West Bend. He was looking
forward to the birth of his first grandson, due in February. He is

mother-in-law, Trudy Wamsley, brother in law Rick Wamsley of
Indianapolis, a dear friend, Al Pérez, of West Bend, and many other
relatives and friends.
Terry was hospitalized for a long time, through that time he always had
a positive attitude and never complained. He fought a tough battle and
never lost hope. He did not want people to mourn his death and we are
honoring his wish by not having a funeral service. A gathering for
family and friends to celebrate Terry’s life will be held. In lieu of
flowers, memorials to the family are appreciated.
