At 4:30 PM Tuesday, 19 October Mr.Terry Darcangelo slipped peacefully from this world to the next. He left behind the never ending pain and suffering of a terrible disease for the eternal gifts of his new heavenly home with his beloved Joyce.
Terry was a graduate of The Ohio State University Knowlton School of Architecture.
Terry was a veteran of the U.S. Army. He served in Armor units in Ft. Knox, Kentucky; Ft. Lewis, Washington, and with the Third Armored Division in Gelenhausen, Germany during the Cold War.
He and his wife Joyce, who preceded him in June 2020, built a successful Stanley Steemer business from the ground up which employed several local residents. The Stanley Steemer Trademark became synonymous with customer service and an important part of the Gulf Breeze business community. He was generous in support of several civic organizations. Mr. Darcangelo had no direct survivors but was welcomed with open arms into Joyce’s family. Terry’s surviving in-laws are Janice (Wood), of Nashville, Tennessee; Karen Sue (Porter) of Jackson, Tennessee; and Rick Saunders of Oakland, Tennessee and numerous nieces and nephews.
Terry was an active member of the City Reach Church.
The ocean-side home, which he and Joyce meticulously planned and built to their own demanding specifications, was the center of their lives, their refuge, the place where they could enjoy their cherished privacy. Their boat was the extension of their home.
He never declined a visit to his to home by his in-laws, their children and assorted friends to enjoy the many attractions of the Pensacola beach region.
Terry is gone. However, our memories of this man of faith include his quiet demeanor, sense of humor, and sincerity in all matters will live with us forever. Rest in peace Ter…
