Terry & Molly Blackstock

We both had been in the trucking for over 24 years. Terry and I had been together over 8 years.

On July 15 of this year Terry was killed in a head-on collision doing what he loved to do, driving a truck!

We both had been in the logging industry for almost eight years. We both drove for Wall Timber, inc.

Terry was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. We have two beautiful grandchildren that Terry adored. One was 1 month old and one was born three hours before Terry got killed. He never got to see her!

Terry worked hard to provide for whatever we wanted or needed! He loved his life as a trucker and wouldn’t have it any other way. R.I.P Sparkplug!!
