Terry Lynn Bredesen passed away Tuesday June 4th at his home in Springville. He was born May 6th, 1952 in Provo Utah, to Bill and Mary Bredesen. He was the youngest of four children.

He attended school in Springville Utah. He continued his education in Auto Body at Utah Valley Technical College, which was also a lifelong hobby.

Terry married twice having a child with each. He was an amazing father to his daughters. Brenda (Brad) Bauer of Spanish Fork, UT. and Amy (Patrick) Martin of Surprise, AZ. He had five grandchildren; Alex (Shayla) Bowers, Tori Bauer (Kayd) Spencer, Jayce Martin, Gage Martin, Christopher (Grace) Martin and six great grandchildren.

Besides spending time with his family, his greatest joy in life was Hot Rods and Car Shows. He spent countless hours in his garage rocking the oldies working on cars. He scabbed for years and years to earn extra money and traded work for parts to build his dream cars. He made many friends over the years with his passion for Hot Rods.

Terry lived his whole life in Springville, UT. He worked most of his years at McNally’s and Geneva Steel. He worked hard to make sure his family’s needs were met before ever taking anything for himself.

He is also known in several local coffee shops, where he and his buddies would stay up on the latest “man” gossip. His daughters thank all his friends for keeping track of him.

Terry is survived by his sisters Sandy (Mark) Rasmussen and Beth (Rodney) Madsen and one sister in law Annette Harward, along with several nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his first wife Joyce Johnson Nelson (Brenda).
He is proceeded in death by his parents Bill and Mary, and his brother Douglas Harward.

A graveside service will be held Friday June 7th at 2:00 pm in the Provo City Cemetery, 610 South State Street in Provo, UT.

Terry pictured here at UVU's Auto Expo, 2017. I asked him if he trailered his car in. "Never! I drive it in!" Terry then told me that he had gone through our program back in the 70's. Impressive. Rest in Peace, Terry.
