Terry William Chateau of Deltona, FL passed away peacefully at his home on Monday May 20th, 2019. He had a genuine excitement for life and all of the beauties nature had to offer. Terry was born in Jamestown, NY near lake Chautauqua. As a child he split his time between Erie, PA and on the Iroquois reservation in NY. Often he would fondly tell stories of the time he spent growing up on the farm and the reservation. Terry enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in May 1964 and was trained as an aviation electrician and pilot. He often joked that Uncle Sam gave him an 18 month all expenses paid trip to Southeast Asia. While in Vietnam he was a part of Marine Air Wing and flew helicopter missions for Air America. He would often laugh and say he survived Vietnam solely because he was a devout coward. After his military service, Terry went on to explore many other adventures in life including being at Woodstock, DJing a radio station in Wyoming, nursing, and so much more. He attended the University of Utah as well as BYU and was educated as an electrical design engineer. He was a member of Landmark Masonic Lodge and a member of the Grotto. Terry loved all sorts of outdoor activities such as camping, fishing, hiking, swimming, and much more. He had a very soft spot in his heart for animals and above all he loved his family more than anything in the world. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Kimberly Orr and his wife of nearly 39 years, Mary Chateau (Tiffany). He is survived by his sons Thomas Chateau, Trevor Chateau and spouse Christine (Main), Tyson Chateau, Troy Chateau and spouse Heather (Smith), and his grandchildren Raymond Green, Aiden Chateau, and Brock Chateau. Terry was above all most proud of his grandchildren and loved them with all his heart. He will be greatly missed by all, but has left many great memories and will never be forgotten.
