Terry Ojibway

August 15, 1951 — December 30, 2019

Chippewa Falls

Terry A. Ojibway, 68, of Chippewa Falls, passed away peacefully Monday, December 30, 2019 at home surrounded by family.

He was born August 15, 1951 in Eau Claire to Edward and Margaret (Hanson) Ojibway.

He attended Fall Creek High School and afterward Terry had a lifelong career serving his country. He was in the U.S. Military and served honorably in multiple branches. He retired after 24 years with the U.S. Coast Guard. In retirement, Terry kept busy doing his main passions of cooking and volunteering for multiple benefits and events. He was quick to lend a hand wherever it was needed.  On December 12, 2011, he married the love of his life, Mary Kempe, and was instantly fulfilled with children and grandchildren. Over the years, Terry enjoyed playing pool, music (listening to and entertaining others), and spending time with family. Most of all, he enjoyed being Grandpa!

Terry is survived by his wife, Mary; children, Scotty (Tanya) Kempe, Billie (Bryan) Goettl, Rocky (Stephanie) Kempe and Alicia (Bruce) Olson; grandchildren, Makita, Tucker, Makendal, and Makaiah Kempe, Cody Goettl, Basia Olson, and Kara and Brynn Kempe; siblings, Dale (Brenda) Ojibway, Nancy Ojibway, Daniel (Deb) Ojibway and Dawn (Dick) Mrozinski; many nieces, nephews, relatives, friends; and his beloved dogs, Casper and Chief.

He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Judy; brothers, Michael, Steven, Tim, Jeff, Larry, and David; and special dog, Maya.

A funeral service will be held at 12 p.m., Monday, January 6 at Pederson-Volker Funeral Chapel, Chippewa Falls with Rev. Aaron Sturgis officiating. Interment will be at Lakeview Cemetery, Eau Claire with military honors by the Chippewa Falls Patriotic Council.

Visitation will begin at 10 a.m. Monday at the funeral home.
