Obituary: Terry Hillier, 64, of Ludington

Terry Lee Hillier, 64, of Ludington, passed away on Friday, December 23, 2022.

Terry was born on April 21, 1958, the son of Virgil and Johanna (Peeraer) Hillier. In 1976, Terry graduated from Ludington High School. On August 9, 1991, he married Debra (Jolly) Hillier. Together they shared over 30 years together. Terry had been employed by TenderCare, Ludington Area Schools, and Mason County, maintaining various county buildings. In 2000, he was able to retire and enjoy the simpler things in life. Terry and his father loved hunting together. They’d spend much of their time bonding over their shared passion. Terry was also known for his great dancing at Johnny’s of Custer. Most of all, he loved spending time with his family. He would often take them camping and have family cookouts, something all would look forward to.
