Terry L. Pyles, age 72, of Scio, passed away on Veterans Day, Friday, November 11, 2022, at Valley Hospice, Steubenville.

Born June 21, 1950, in Dennison, he was a son of the late John Paul Pyles and Beady Slates Pyles. After graduating from Scio High School in 1968, he went to Diesel and Auto Mechanic School in Nashville. He was raised on a farm and was a hard worker all of his life. Terry mowed yards, milked cows, and worked at the Scio Roller Rink in his younger years; then, he worked at Guess Motors, the Scio Sale Barn, and retired from Timken Roller Bearing after 31 years of service.

Terry was also a Vietnam Veteran who honorably served in the Army in Thailand and Cambodia. He belonged to the Scio American Legion Post 482 and was a devoted member of their honor guard. He was also a member of the Scio Sportsman’s Club. He loved horses, dogs, riding motorcycles, and four-wheelers.

In 1976 he married Karmie Stull Pyles at Scio Presbyterian Church. On September 23, 1977, they were blessed with a son, JP William Pyles, who was the love of their lives. He was tragically called home to the Lord in 2006.

Surviving, in addition to his loving and devoted wife, is a sister Paulette Heavener and a brother Perry Pyles.

The family would like to thank everyone who helped Terry over the years, including Craig Brokaw, who was their son’s godfather.
