Richard “Terry” Draper, age 68, of Columbia, Tennessee, passed away on Wed. Oct.11, 2017.

Terry was born on January 30, 1949, in Nashville, Tennessee to Ray and Louise Vantrease Draper. He was one of the sweetest people you would ever want to meet. He was generous to a fault, and though he didn’t have much in the way of material possessions, he would give you the shirt off his back. There was always an innate innocence about him. He loved nature, riding his tractor, working jigsaw puzzles and loved a Tennessee home-grown tomato better than anyone on the planet. He was dearly loved and will be missed by his family and all who knew him.

Terry is survived by his sister and brother-in-law: Patsy (Craig) Draper-Jones of Columbia, his niece, Sarah Rose Jones, cousins and many friends which he considered family.

There will be a private gathering of family and friends to celebrate his life.

Cremation Society of Tennessee is assisting the family with the arrangements and online condolences may be made to the family at
