Terry was born to Frank and Edith Connely on September 24, 1961 in Broken Bow, Ne. He graduated from Broken Bow High School with the class of 1980. He then married his wife Alice Spotanski on April 16, 1983. Terry and Alice had two children Katie and Travis.
Terry had many trades throughout his life, but there was never a job that he couldn’t complete. He volunteered countless hours to organizations such as Boy Scouts, the Fire Department, and the EMT Squad. Terry was known by many names, Dad, Papa ChooChoo, and Pappy the Rodeo Clown. Through Terry’s long health battles, the community showed Terry how big of an impact he has had on each person’s life. The loss of Terry will be felt by many.
Terry is survived by his wife, Alice of Broken Bow; daughter Katie (Ben) Williamson; son Travis Connely and fiance Kiana Elder; parents Frank and Edith Connely; sister Jeanne (Fred) Schumacher; grandchildren Gracie, Hattie, and Riggin of Gordon; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends that became family.
