Terry was born on April 18, 1942, in Los Angeles, California. The family relocated to Omaha, Nebraska due to the outbreak of World War II and his father’s service in the Navy. He graduated from Central High School in Omaha and joined the U.S. Army in 1962. His service to our nation in the Green Berets, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the State Department led him to Israel where he met and married the love of his life, Monika. In 1981 they relocated to Switzerland to care for Monika’s terminally ill father and help on the dairy farm. In 1994 the family of six relocated to Omaha, NE to be the primary caregivers for his aging mother.
Terry will always be remembered as a loving husband, playful Daddy, adored Grossvati (Grandfather), Uncle T, and a kind and loving soul to any person who crossed his path.
He was preceded in death by parents, Tom and Dorothy Maides, brother, Tommy “Skip” Maides. Terry is survived by wife, Monika (Saxer); children: Michael Maides (Jaclyn), Elisa Armstrong (Andrew), Benjamin Maides (Ashley), Timothy Maides; 12 grandchildren.
